This should really be down my alley: female
fronted dark, progressive metal with a flair for melody.
Janssen and her Dutch compatriots do have some really nice
ideas and the addition of a flute in many of the songs brings back
some fond memories of Psychotic Waltz, but the songs are simply not
strong enough to win me over.
Aniek does not have the strongest nor the most
powerful voice in metal, and the mediocre production does not help
matters much, so I end up with an album of which I have no
recollection of 5 minutes after it's finished.
There is so many better and more innovative
bands within this little niche of metal, that I don't see much room
left for this band and their middle of the road album, which won't
make much noise nor make a stir in the metal community at all.
