A TRACK BY TRACK REVIEW OF THIS 3RD OUTING FROM THIS EXCITING BAND.

1. CAPTURED - We kick off proceedings with a powerful metal number, opening with a nice bass rhythm then a chugging beat with the rhythm section as Genevieve's powerful metal voice comes into play with backing growls. Some good guitar work makes this a good headbanging track to set the tone for the rest of the album. A good strong opener
RUNNING TIME. 5.29 MIN
RATING. 8.5


2. SLAVE TO THE SYSTEM - Opening with some sizzling guitars and male growls, building up to a driving tempo, Genevieve is in fine fettle here driving it along with her powerful vocals. There is some great guitar work from the guys that create a melodic sound and flavour to the track. The female vocals soar in places and the song builds up to another powerful ending.
RUNNING TIME. 5.09 MIN
RATING. 9


3. SHALLOW GRAVE - The title track, and what a great number it is. A doomy Gothic style intro before developing into a dark metal menacing track. Genevieve's vocals send shivers up your spine at times. Lots of different tempos and good faster driving beats on offer to make this a thunderous affair. There is an excellent guitar solo just over the halfway mark to add another spark to this blazing number. Great stuff.
RUNNING TIME. 6.40 MIN
RATING. 10


4. THE ENTITY - Another mix of tempos and styles. A very dark metal opening with a thunderous beat that leads into some nice guitar solos before the pace slows down a notch as the female vocals kick in to a great advantage ,soaring and reaching great heights with good backing by the bass, drums and deadly male growls that all add to the mix. The song includes a nice gentle interlude with some pretty good guitar work before it reverts back to the main theme of the track which also has a catchy main chorus. A good metal number once again.
RUNNING TIME. 5.40
RATING. 9






5. SILENT TEARS - A slow melodic beginning with a Gothic symphonic feel and whispering female vocals. Eerie stuff !!! Then 'WHAM' brutal male growls and heavy guitars kick you in the teeth before emerging into a short guitar melody and the track settles into a more gentle mode with Genevieve's vocals luring you into the next heavy dark section. Genevieve teases and entices you with a superb Gothic feel here, lots of different textures and use of light and shade. Both Dark and uplifting with some nice rhythmic sections. Drains everything out of your pores and leaves you slightly numb. WOW!!
RUNNING TIME. 6.38. MIN
RATING. 10


6. FOREVER HAUNTED - Another headbanger on offer here, a metal ride with sharp edged female vocals, dark metal riffs/shredding and backing growls all coming together to create another white knuckle treat for you to enjoy.
RUNNING TIME. 5.31.MIN
RATING 8.5


7. DARKNESS LIES - Brutal male growls and a heavier metal sound opens the track as the powerful female vocals, which soar in places, make an entrance, there is some slightly manic forceful drumming from Ben that helps propel the number along, the guitar work is of a more faster pace than some of the previous songs providing a melodic, dark menacing sound which enhances the track even more before building up to a kick in your teeth ending.
RUNNING TIME. 5.21 MIN
RATING. 9


8. YOUR TIME HAS COME (Bonus Track) - And it has indeed, Genevieve is really on top form here, her vocals are menacing and really creep under your skin and into your brain.T he vocals are a bit more huskier here to go with the dark chugging tempo of the track. Great guitar work from the guys once again adding to the flavour .There is an almost tribal sound towards the latter part of this dark metal number. A short track that leaves you gasping for more as your adrenaline is still pumping away and your nerves shredded.
RUNNING TIME. 3.57 MIN
RATING 10


A great third album from this fine band, they have come a long way since their debut album MASQUERADE, back in 2007, which itself was a great album in my view. For fans who like strong Dark Metal with Gothic overtones and melodic passages, if this is the case then this album is a must. Highly recommended .... 9.5/10
