Format: Audio CD
Nemesea was formed in 2002 in The Netherlands by the classically trained vocalist Manda Ophuis and guitarist Hendrik Jan de Jong. The band initially toured as support for After Forever. They have released `Mana' (2004), `In Control' (2007), the `Pure: Live @ P3' (2009) and `The Quiet Resistance' (2011).

The band is composed of Manda Ophuis (vocals), Hendrik Jan de Jong (guitar), Sonny Onderwater (bass), Lasse Dellbrügge (keyboards) and Frank Van Der Star (drums). They are part of the European gothic/symphonic metal scene which means that they are often compared to Within Temptation.

Whilst their second album saw them move over to electronica-based pop, they have thankfully moved back towards symphonic metal territory on this release. After the menacingly whispered intro, they enter the darkly gothic, emotional maelstrom of `Caught In The Middle' with its jagged riffing. My personal favourite is `Afterlife' with its harsh rock leanings, high vocals and full-on chorus of "Can we see, can we feel when we're in the afterlife / Do you know, how I know to believe in you / Because I do / Can we hope, can we love, can it be our destiny / `Cos I'm listening / Yes I'm listening / To you".

The melodic parts of `Whenever' are counterbalanced by the aural assault of guitar and glass-shattering vocals. There is the melancholic ballad `If You Could' with its aching "If you could, if you could see me / If you could hold me / For one last time I'd be okay / But you just left me / You took your chance and slipped away".

The slow-burning `High Enough' contains guest vocals by Charlotte Wessels of Delain. However, I'm not so sure about the turntable scratching within `Its Over' as they move into pop-rock mode.

Years ago I owned a Nemesea track called "Angel in the Dark" which was kind of Epica-esque is style. Now, Nemesea have been made over and have a wonderful album to show for it. This album sounds like a collaboration between Lacuna Coil and Evanescence while still bringing their own ideas to the table. "Caught in the Middle" is a brilliant track but the bonus track "Allein" totally made this album for me. Try to make sure you get a copy with that song on it or you are seriously missing out. Great album. I listened to it an unhealthy amount once it arrived on my doorstep. Give it a shot and give Nemesea the attention they finally deserve.

I saw Nemesea live in Eindhoven last year and they were great - very professional and sounded just as good live as on their albums. This was before the release of "The Quiet Resistance" so they only played "old" tracks and Manda was still in her auburn-haired mode. The release of this new album has coincided with an interesting change to the Nemesea image, and may well improve their fortunes. I've never understood why excellent Dutch bands such as this don't do better in the (admittedly competitive) UK market, so let's hope this album will help them turn a corner and get the recognition they deserve.
Now to the album itself: it's got some really great tracks such as "Caught in the Middle" and "High Enough", and the re-working of "Stay With Me" is excellent. However I'm not keen on "Allein" in particular and "2012" isn't a favourite either - but music is a question of personal taste, so my overall opinion of this album is still good.
Other great tracks include "Say", "If I Could" and "Whenever", and although I wanted to give 5 stars the couple of tracks I didn't rate highly mean that 4 is all I can justify.
If you've not heard or seen Nemesea before I'd certainly recommend this album - it's a good mix of styles and musical types that should appeal to many people. Go and see them live too!

I'm really pleased for Manda, HJ and the rest of the band. This is their third album. It's taken several years but this is really good electro-metal with some pop, some goth and at the end some bizarre off-the-wall electro prog. What a CD, this is totally infectious stuff, a combination of the best aspects of the first two albums. They've teamed up well with producer Joost van der whatsisname from defunct After Forever for TQR and I hope it continues because he's really brought the best out of their unique sound.

They are their own band but if you like bands such as Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation or even older electro acts like Depeche Mode you might like Nemesea. I love the down to earth lyrics from Manda that deal a lot with personal experiences and relationships, it really adds a warmth to the songs. It you want to check out one or two tracks, I'll suggest Whenever or Rush, which have a good blend of quiet electro and powerful rock with poppy bits. Hope that makes sense.

Nice one Nemesea, good luck with Napalm records, I knew you were talented enough to go far and I think the journey has only just begun!

I was pointed towards this album on the basis of my liking for bands such as Within Temptation, Delain and Nightwish - and the first thing I have to say is... thankyou Amazon!
Combining strong clear vocals - Manda Ophuis sounds equally excellent in the quieter gentler songs and the full-power numbers - with well-blended instruments and tight production, this ticks almost every single box for me. There are no 'rawwwk' excesses (extensive guitar solo egotrips, shrieking vocals, etc), this is pure quality.
A note on Manda's vocals - some non-native-English-speakers can trip over their phrasing and carry some slightly dense accents, but you would never guess her origins. It's such a pleasure not to have to concentrate so hard upon the words that you lose appreciation for the music.
As for the music itself, Nemesea clearly build it around synthesizers - I've read other reviews commenting upon a previous foray into electronica/pop - but nothing dominates and everything fits together perfectly. I've commented in another review about the genius of a producer/musician named Waldemar Sorychta (for instance check out Eyes Of Eden 'Faith' - you won't regret it) and the magic touch of the brothers Westerholt (Within Temptation, Delain) for crafting brilliantly-produced recordings - and Nemesea's HJ compares well to them.
I cannot recommend this album highly enough.
