Lullacry: Where Angels Fear
Lullacry Where Angels Fear Review

Lullacry: Where Angels Fear

Modern Melodic Heavy Metal
3.0/5.0

My first experience with Finland's Lullacry was 2003's Crucify My Heart. The curious thing about this release is that it came only 34 days after the monster album Fallen by America's Evanescence. This juggernaut laid waste to most all modern melodic metal band with a female lead singer and goth nuances. The rest is history, as they say. I've wondered what happened to Lullacry since then.

Lullacry: feels the wind in their hair.

Well, there was a fourth album, I discovered, Vol. 4, clever title, in 2006. Now with Scarlet Records, and 6 years later, Lullacry returns with Where Angels Fear. Can't say much has changed since my first experience, except I think I liked them better with Crucify My Heart. But that could be because there's a bucket load of bands doing the same thing.

Expect crunchy modern metal, with massive riffage, some synth accents and, of course, Tanja Lainio's clean soaring vocals. At their heart, I think Lullacry wants to be a rock band. At the very least, a rock band with catchy, accessible metal, side. You hear this in the better numbers like Broken, Bad Blood (the first single), and Still an Angel. Otherwise, Where Angels Fear is standard fare for modern melodic metal with a female lead.






In Short

Lullacry returns from a six year studio hiatus with Where Angel Fear, and not much has changed.
