Damn good demo, Damn good band. - 95%

Mulletbond, January 29th, 2006

Wow, what a pleasent suprise. I happened to be fooling around on Myspace (yes, Myspace) when I get a friend invite from none other than To-Mera. At first I thought it was some kid named Tommera with spelling problems, how happy I was to find that it was a progressive metal band. After downloading and listening to the demo I was heavily impressed by the 2 songs that the demo contains.

1. Dreadful Angel - It's the better of the two, Julie's voice is great here, the guitars are technical, and the drumming is great. The interlude in the middle gives you breathing room, right before the song starts right back up and starts bashing your skull again, then ends with a very thrash-esque ending. Great song.

2. Born of Ashes - Acoustic intro with Julie's beautiful singing, then it changes a bit into a symphonic type arangement, then into a thrashy riff with lots of backing keys. After thrashing for a while, it slows down into an interlude that reminds me alot of something Opeth would do. Very good song, but not as good Dreadful Angel

This is a very strong demo, from a band that promises much. I'll certainly be buying the full-length when it arrives, and I hope it's as good as this.
Highly reccomended to fans of Opeth, Pain Of Salvation, or thrash fans in general.
