Surprise of the month

Second album for this band, but the first I hear from them, and I must say that I'm nicely surprised by this release. But well, the guy's are from Finland, that outta count ;). As I understand it the band changed a bit their line-up, the new members are the singer Mika Taurianen and the bass player Joni Miettinen. The first thing that is perceived right away when you play the CD is the excellent production done at the Astia A-Studio with Anssi Kippo (Children Of Bodom, Sinergy, ...) and was finally mastered at Finnvox.

Musically Entwine plays a pretty good although quite predictable Gothic Metal. The overall remind me of a merging between The Gathering and Sentenced. The melodies are very deep and the excellent arrangements made on keyboards by the very cute female keyboard player Riitta Heikkonen add a mystical dimension to the songs. The vocals are pretty much what you'd expect from Gothic, Mika Tauriainen (vocals) have a nice voice and sings very well. The guitars atmosphere use quite heavy riffs in order to enhance the mood of the music in the best of ways. Only little disappointement would be that the overall tends to repeat itself and might also be a little too depressing. But that goes with the style I guess...

Very good album from this Finland Gothic Metal band that will, I'm sure, make a lot of noise in the Gothic scene and believe me they diserve it. Congratulations.
