Brave – “Surrounds Me” EP (2014)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

The Virginia based progressive rock/metal band Brave began their career in 1996 under the name Arise From Thorns in 1997 they released their debut demo followed by a self-titled full-length in 1998 and then the album “Before an Audience of Stars” followed a year later before the band changed their name to Brave. Under this new moniker the band has gone on to release two EPs, two full-lengths and a compilation, but has not released any new material since 2008, until now. Which brings us to their new 3-song single “Surrounds Me”.

The 15-minute disc begins with “Surrounds Me”. Michelle Schrotz has a fantastic voice. Fans of While Heaven Wept will know her as their keyboardist but with Brave she gets to prove what a top flight vocalist she is. “Surrounds Me” has some cool tempo changes and a pretty heavy riff as well as a great solo to finish the song.

Edenial – “Innerpretations” (2014)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

From Chile, Edenial returns with their second full-length album. Their debut “From the End” was released in 2010 and now they present their sophomore effort. The album has been mastered by the legendary Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York City. The band mixes an eclectic brew of metal which is hard to define; the bands influences range from power metal to thrash metal to progressive metal and more. With all due respect to “From the End”, “Innerpretations” definitely represents a step forward for Edenial.

The power thrash of the opener “Soul Echo” is an excellent way to begin things. Next is “Wrath” which begins with a doomy rapid fire guitar riff as the song goes off into some intricate technical directions. “Red Rum” has a great big melodic metal sound. Continue reading »

Tom Phillips – While Heaven Wept

Interview by Miriam C.

Reading Tom‘s words what shines through is a pure innocence after being reborn from the ashes of a past life. Probably I read too much sci-fi stuff, that’s for sure but WHW is one of the few bands whose spirit is still driven by the real passion for music without any business shenanigans. WHW‘s music helps to cleanse your soul and can totally help you during your catharsis. So, we contacted Tom Phillips, the mastermind behind this family business, for more updates about their recent album “Suspended at Aphelion”.
 
Hi Tom, first of all welcome back to Femme Metal Webzine! How are you? It’s passed a lot of time since the last time we chat together…

Doing well Miriam, thanks for asking! I hope it is the same for you…and that you’ve resolved your computer issues! (Yes, finally Tom, thanks for being thoughtful!)

Please me indulge us now Tom but WHW doesn’t have exactly the tradition to release studio albums in such short periods of time, I refer for example to “Sorrow of the Angels” and “Of Empires Forlorn” ’cause between this 2 album, there is a break of 5 years. Is WHW embracing a new era, a more productive one than ever? Continue reading »

Wormhole – “The String Theory” (2012)

Label: Ghost Record Label

Review by Tony Cannella

So here is another band from Italy. They are called Wormhole and their debut is titled “The String Theory”. They combine straight forward metal riffs with melodic rock, and gothic metal. Prior to this full-length they have release two EPs.

For starters, the sound on “The String Theory” is almost crystal clear and perfect. Wormhole is fronted by the consistent vocals of Valentina Marvulli who does an excellent job as her voice fits in perfectly with the music. It isn’t too far out in front and it isn’t in the back. The musicianship is impressive as well; everyone also has their own share of the spotlight. “Your Mortal Remains” is a cool opener that starts off with a slower tempo, but it progressively picks up. “Autumn Leaves” has a straight forward metal riff and a killer melody.
