Nocturnal Resurrection

Rated 2/5 (40%) (2 Votes)

Graveshadow is a California band that plays Traditional Heavy Metal that is heavy on the keyboards, though I wouldn't really call them "symphonic" and employs both clean and Death vocals courtesy of singer Heather Michele Smith. Musically Graveshadow reminds me of A Sound of Thunder with a lot more keyboards and songwriting that is not quite as catchy. The band's debut, Nocturnal Resurrection, is full of energy and the mix of vocal styles gives it some added depth, but the songs aren't particularly memorable. I liked the album while it was on but can't recall much when it isn't and was always left feeling like I should have enjoyed it more. I can't think of much to say about it, damning it with faint praise in a way, but that's the truth. The band has promise but needs some better material if they want to stand out from the crowd.
