Of course it's just one track out of 13 so...
Hmmm? I think I'd have to spend some time with it. Definitely slick and well done. On the one hand, I think the beauty and beast vocals is kind of dated and done to death (bad pun). But, they do it pretty well. Simone has a great voice-no question there. My guess, is in Europe where there is a bigger market for popular metal, this style is maybe still a "thing". No real ground broken here. But, WTF, I kind of dig the retro style.
I used to listen to Within Temptation and liked them-and they've gone a more rock approach. Almost hum drum.
If I'm going melodic, I probably like straight up memodeth or something like last year's Carcass or whatnot.
Thanks for posting.
