THEATRE OF TRAGEDY
STORM
CANDLELIGHT

Norway's Theatre of Tragedy play the kind of ethereal form of metal featuring male and female vocals a la Lacuna Coil on the veteran act's latest release STORM. Meshing a pop-rock sensibility into its gothic metal swirl, songs like "Silence" break out like Coldplay on steroids, while "Begin and End" rivals anything done by Katatonia in the past few rounds. Cohesive songwriting and strong dynamics shifts further propel STORM as an album for people that want a heavier Evanescence vibe, as this sextet seems poised to breakthrough the underground and to Hot Topic shelves everywhere.
