For those who don't know of the Ayreon material (shame on you), Marcela's voice is extremely powerful and melodic and tends to stay around the higher range of vocals.
I have heard suggestions that SoP sound similar to Evanescence, an impression that was somewhat reinforced by the two tracks that were available for download before this album was released. However, these tracks ("Passion" and "Deceiver") are the closest that it gets to conventional rock / metal. In fact, with the higher pitched vocals and the darker, gothic feel, it seems to have a little more in common with Nightwish. For me though, Nightwish were very difficult to get into and enjoy, whereas SoP grabs you from the start and doesn't let go until the CD stops spinning... Then you just have to start it all over again.
There are some elements, which mean that "Embrace the Storm" is not as immediately accessible as the more conventional rock or metal albums. The vocals range from high to very high (but always top quality) and the gothic tone that pervades the whole album may not be to everyone's taste. There is a smattering of Spanish lyrics, all nicely translated in the in lay. Occasionally, Marcela hits some notes that are surprising in their context and while this is by no means a bad thing (a very good thing, as far as I'm concerned), it can catch you off-guard.Read more ›
Spellbound - This song is really a glorified intro, with pounding percussion and swirlling keyboards and strings. Marcela's angelic voice sits nicely on top of this and really introduces the listener to her. Some drums and a melodic guitar solo begins about half way through the track which suges into some heavy, crunching rhythm. Good start to the album. 7/10
Passion - After the intro track, the heavy rhythms kick in fantastically accompanied by some very Nightwish-esque keyboards. However, this quickly ends and some programming begins with Marcela singing over the top. Her voice really is very good and is one of the high points of the album. The song boasts a very symphonic-style chorus with the orchestra playing along perfectly with the pounding of the drums. A very strong song. 8/10
Deceiver - A rather melodic track that uses dark, atmospheric keyboards and Marcela's vocals to create a spooky verse. The chorus is very powerful and the really heavy guitars really add something to the song.Read more ›

The band is superb, as is anything with Arjen Lucasson's touch (Ayreon, Star One, The Gentle Storm etc.). Saw them live and it was simply amazing. The band is aptly titled. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Robert Wingfield
Wonderful Album. Excellent vocals, Great musicianship and exceptional songwriting. Female fronted rock at its bestPublished on 30 Jan. 2015 by Dai Bandit
Enjoyably different with great vocals and some complex playing but is indicative of Stream of Compression as they developed further toward their later productionsPublished on 14 Nov. 2014 by Prog Pensioner
I've been getting into a lot of these Symphonic female fronted power bands lately, although they all sort of sound like Nightwish / Within Temptation / Tarja , but that is no bad... Read morePublished on 31 Mar. 2013 by VulpinVolta

I found this album whilst browsing for Evanescence songs, and decided to give it a go. At first I wasn't sure about this. Read morePublished on 23 Oct. 2010 by Marty
I have a theory. Albums that take a while to get into last you a lifetime and those with "instant" appeal end up being rarely played. This was a real slow burner. Read morePublished on 8 Nov. 2007 by bobm
