Evenoire: Vitriol

Gothic/Symphonic/Power Metal
3.0/5.0

Dangerdog Music Reviews has been inundated with female-lead metal bands since the beginning of the year. Here's Italy's Evenoire, fronted by Lisy Stefanoni. What can we expect?

Evenoire: not enough blue for everybody?

Here's the upside of their latest release, Vitriol. First, this album is not the extravagant and bombastic symphonic metal you might expect, but the nuances are still there. Second, they don't condescend to the addition of death vocals, as many of their peers do. Finally, there's a significant emphasis on traditional metal, with notable kudos to nice guitar solos.

Conversely, it all stills sounds very familiar. What will separate them from the (huge) pack of female-fronted metal bands? It could be the fundamental power metal song construction. Or perhaps the addition of acoustic interludes as Girl by the Lake offers. Alessandro Gervasi's guitar work is also impressive. But the question remains, is it enough to separate them, or put them ahead of, say, the latest from Nightwish. I doubt it.

Nevertheless, Evenoire is on the right path. What they become, against the current type, is totally in their hands. Give Evenoire a listen.






In Short

Evenoire's Vitriol adds nothing nor advances the genre of female-fronted metal bands. But, at the very least, they are interesting and entertaining. Let's hope for more in the future.
