is definitely one of the most unique bands that I have ever listened
to. Their influences are from just about anything. Each of the members
of the band are from another country originally. The vocalist, Lizza
Hayson, is from Israel, Karla Williams plays guitar, she is from Jamaica,
and their drummer is from Poland, his name is Peter Lobodzinski. This
band has been working together since July 1999, and in that period
of time, they have put out some pretty good songs. All the songs of
this CD are good. They are anywhere from being groove influenced to
melodic and from heavy and dark to tribal, it's a very dimensional
CD. The vocal style is a little like Karen Crisis of Crisis, musically
its hard to describe. Its tribal sound is similar to either Sepultura
or Nile. The main base of their music is like Neurosis crossed with
the new metal sound, and a little Tool. My favorite songs on this
four song, seventeen minute demo are, "Open Your Minds"
and "The Time Has Come." They are the more melodic songs
on the CD, but "BH" and "The E Song" are good
groove influences songs. The best way to find out about this band
is to check out their website at www.mahavatar.net.
Give this band a very deserved chance, they have put together something
that really has not ever been put together. This demo is one of the
best demos I have ever heard. This band has unlimited potential, I
can't wait to see how they use it.
