Debut full-length album by Finnish Melodic Power/Heavy Metal band.Female fronted melodic Power Metal band that plays a smooth as ice brand of Progressive Euro Metal. European Metal is built on such a different foundation than American Metal… you can really feel the classical influences. This can also be heard in the vocals which are far more operatic. Although the delivery will occasionally dip down into a more edgy style, typically it stays very clean and strong. Which is a good thing in that the vocals tend to lift the songs up rather than push them down. As a band, Venia has a sound that calls to mind bands like Nightwish, Midnattsol, and Epica. The music is fleshed out and full. It’s heavy but with softer edges than your standard American Metal due to its almost symphonic nature. Keyboard and violin accent the chugging guitars, flowing vocals, and rapid-fire drums.This album will be loved by all fans of Within Temptation, HB, Rob Rock, amongst many others!Open Grave Records/NePlusUltra Music, 2009 (OGR038 / NPU002).
