SEED OF SADNESS "Seed Of Sadness" /CD/

Debut EP by Greek Power/Gothic Metal band.
This debut EP from Greek melodic rockers Seed Of Sadness will perhaps capture most people’s attention because of the contribution of Firewind/Outland keyboardist/guitarist Bob Katsionis, who also mixed the five tracks on this self-released and self-titled opus. Hopefully Katsionis’ presence and contribution will help to bring some most deserved attention to this rather pleasant little offering, at it is as fine a slice of melodic Euro Metal as you are going to find around at the moment. While the keyboards are overly prominent in some places, they by and large combine with the excellent guitar work of Jimmy Nore, who weaves some interesting musical landscapes across the rock solid foundation created by bassist Mike G and drummer Johnny K, who both do their jobs with consummate ability. The standout contribution, however, is that of Stellaria, who has a rich voice, resonant, powerful and melodic, deeper than many of her contemporaries but eminently suited to the material, particularly on heavier moments such as “Is This The Way”, although she also pulls off quieter passages, such as “The Final Dance” with equal conviction.
The songs, in their basic structure, are played with both ability and passion and the performances have enough conviction in them to warrant not only returning to this particular EP but also to whet the appetite for the inevitable follow up.
