Progressive/Metal band By Blood Alone from America make their
full album debut after releasing an EP "Eternally" back in 2005.
The 8 track "Seas Of Blood" is filled with epic tracks with most clocking in around 7 minutes.
There's a theatrical vein running through the record and I have a feeling that most of the songs will become even better on stage.
One big difference from other bands in this genra that have female vocalists is that Cruella ain't no opera style singer which is very refreshing.
She's more a combination of Pat Benatar & Björk.
The debut album is a good start and I'll be looking forward to hearing what's coming next.
I hope for a more powerful production and even bigger songs in the future.
BEST TRACK : Serpentarius
SOUNDS LIKE : Nightwish,Dream Theater,Kansas,Kamelot
