Ashes in the Hourglass
9/14/2004 - Review by: Frank HillImp - Ashes In The Hourglass - NuParadigm Records Reviewed by: Nailer
Female vocalist Monica Janssen (Acidict, Thripthong and At Daybreak) carries the set, the Yin to John Arch's Yang. She's out of element with the sprinkling of vocal growls that come across as pandering to tastes better left to a male voice or Glassgow/Otep throat, but she shines beautifully with the melodic leads:
"Beneath the silver moon, on an eerie night / dancing shadows swayed in starlight, / the black blood / of Eden in their eyes"
There's the strength of voice that belies the bands name and the key that could carry them on.
