After browsing for music and stumbling across this five-piece, all-girl doom metal band from Ljubljana, Slovenia, formed back in July 2012., I was beyond thrilled to find out that they just released a demo three weeks ago.
This is by far some of my favourite art work on any album that I’ve ever seen, although I may be a bit biased because of my love for animal skulls and horns. Simple and sweet, it’s titled Demo 2013.
With the first track, “Phobia,” you can hear a lot of Coven-oriented instrumentals, with Nina’s vocals very defined and softer than most metal bands’ front women’s vocals. Much like Jex Thoth, her vocals may not be growling, but they are in perfect harmony with her band’s guitar riffs. “Phobia” soon blends into their next single, “The Living Dead,” where Mihaela’s drumming makes for an impressive beginning of the song.
The only downside I have to say is that there isn’t more to their demo, which keeps you craving more of their music.
