Delain - We Are The Others
Roadrunner Records

Incredible release! Such a thoughtful theme at an appropriate time! Every song is amazing! Their best to date IMO. This is the CD I have to eject from the player in the car almost every time, just to play something else!
Lacuna Coil - Dark Adrenaline
Century Media Records


With one release, they have managed to touch upon styles found in almost all of their catalog! Certainly not short of headbanging material. A kick ass Coiler collection played almost every day in the car, in part, or whole!
Anathema - Weather Systems
Peaceville Records

An amazing compilation! SO good to listen to within the confines of my gardens during the summer. So emotional too. Lee Douglas is amazing! 'Lighting Song' played at the MFVF between bands, leaving me in tears!
The Agonist - Prisioners
Century Media Records

Their best to date! Great for driving in heavy traffic!! Some amazing songs by Alissa and the guys on this, including one of my favorites, 'Dead Ocean'. Takes a prominent place in my collection in the car!
LEAH - Of Earth & Angels
HMP Records

From Vancouver, Canada, Leah's voice is absolutely amazing, and the CD is brilliant thoughout, especially for an initial release!! Many great songs on this including 'I Fade' and 'Mainland'!!
Seven Kingdoms - The Fire Is Mine
Nightmare Records

Fantastic power metal, great harmonies, and great vocals by Sabrina Valentine. I've never have been one for this genre of femal fronted metal, until now!
The Birthday Massacre - Hide and Seek
Metropolis Records

Awesome, albeit short release. It's SO good that it's finished before you know it!! Play With Fire is amazing, as is Chibi!!
Epica - Requiem for the Indifferent
Nuclear Blast Records

I still love Consign to Oblivion and Design Your Universe better, but there's still lots of great Epica stuff in this release. Again, the choirs shine! Quite heavy too!
Whyzdom - Blind?
Scarlet Records

I absolutely LOVE the arrangements in this album. Great songs in this release!
Diabulus In Musica - The Wanderer
Napalm Records

This sophomore release by DiM was a great way to kick start a great year in female fronted metal. Zuberoa has a wonderfully sweet voice!
