Guide Review - Lullacry - Vol. 4
Tanja's vocals are poppy with a bit of gothic influence. Think Shirley Manson meets Gwen Stefani. Lullacry's music has a nice flow to it, going from intense metal parts to more mellow interludes. The songs also have a wide mixture of tempos and textures that add even more variety. When I saw the track "King Of Pain" I was expecting a Police cover, but it's an original song with the same name.
If you're a fan of death metal or anything really extreme you'll hate this album. But if you like your metal on the melodic side, this will be right up your alley.
