Review by Tony Cannella

Magdalen Graal is quite an accomplished and talented vocalist hailing from the U.K. She plays an avant-garde mix of metal and Gothic with elements of electronica as well. She is backed by a stellar line-up of musicians that can be heard on her self-titled debut release. The opening track “Behind You” is a good indication of what to expect throughout this 32-minute, 10-track release. The vocals of Magdalen are quite impressive as she demonstrates a great range throughout the CD and her style – which is on the operatic side of things – really gives the songs an added dimension. The third track “Together” is one of the highlights with it’s up-tempo style and more great vocals. Other highlights include: “There’s No End”, “Incredible” and the closing number “Moonlight Brightness” which is a beautiful piano ballad and ends things on a wistful note. Piano is featured prominently throughout the CD. Overall, I found myself enjoying this CD more and more with each listen. Maybe it could have benefited from a better production, but there is no denying the quality of the material. The CD is currently available as a free download on the official web site.

Rating – 75/100
