4.0 out of 5 stars Looking for a band to fill that Evanescence shaped hole in your life?, 5 July 2013
This review is from: Surrender the Sun (MP3 Download)
Let's just get this out of the way now, the comparisons with Evanescence for Noctura have been coming thick and fast since their formation a few years ago, with VERY good reason. A core membership of singer/pianist Mandy Suiter and guitarist Jeremy Roche, much like Ev's early days, and that's exactly where the sound sits. Somewhere between Ev's Origin/Fallen days.

Mandy's voice is incredibly similar to that of Amy Lee's, and the mix of chugging nu metal guitar and orchestration in the background gives the perfect Ev-alike backdrop.

The album itself is pretty solid, but it'd be great if there was a bit more variation on the record, and because of the similarities the band draws with Ev and Ben Moody's new band We Are The Fallen, you can't help but feel you've heard it all before. To be honest though, that's exactly why I checked this band out - Ev and WATF have been pretty inactive lately, and this will fill the void nicely. Maybe more of the band's own personality will come out on repeated listens, but for now, it's just nice to hear that sort of deliciously dark melodrama and mix of crunching pop metal and a dulcet, ethereal vocal that I've enjoyed so much from Ev in the past again.
