||I am a bit confused with Gracefallen’s
approach, especially knowing of Domingo Smets' presence (whom has
worked with bands like Ancient Rites, Agathocles, and Renaissance).
By confused, I am referring to the awkward sorta "out-of-synchronization"
type of dark metal atmosphere. The music itself isn't bad at all,
the screams aren't bad, but the female vox are a bit too noticable.
I enjoy a good soprano female vocal most of the time and this one
isn't too bad either, it's a stemline between the production and the
mastering levels that gives it too much lift. Expectations for these
guys (and girl) will be a much greater success whenever a record label
deal is met, I am sure. However, a prime example of Gracefallen’s
music is of an older-Theatre Of Tragedy with a more aggressive notch.
I do like most of what I hear, but there are those "pick and
choose" flaws that can yet be heard.
