Beyond The Black – Lost in Forever

folder

 

The stylistic divide between this album and its predecessor is non-existent, and there is only an ever so slightly uptick in ambitiousness, resulting in songs that are somewhat wider in scope and equipped with more moving parts, but still completely tied in with a streamlined, catchy, chorus-oriented songwriting approach. The chief draw remains lead vocalist Jennifer Haben, who’s Sharon Den Adel meets Pilar Garcia voice proves more than capable of handling the duality of triumphant, semi-operatic bombast with a softer, more crooning demeanor, which works very well on songs where balladry and harder edged metallic elements are mixed together as on “Halo Of The Dark” and “Beautiful Lies”, the latter also happening to feature the glorified Coverdale inspired grit of Rick Altzi, known for his contributions to At Vance, Masterplan and Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall.
