Lacuna Coil and Nightwish fans rejoice! There's yet another act utilizing heavy guitars, operatic female vocals, and epic songwriting skills. The name is To-Mera, and this quintet's eight-track offering is graced with solid musicianship and sweeping melodies that at times are equally haunting and enchanting. Tracks like "Obscure Oblivion" displays the band's mid-tempo mope factor, while "Dreadful Angel" displays this unit's not afraid to wail on the heavy bag to churn out some crunchy riffs. If you like darker-edged rock with tinges of fantasy metal, TRANSCENDENTAL is an album to check out.
