Brilliant stuff indeed.

In another review elsewhere in this issue, I mentioned that, at this moment in time, there is a hell of a lot of Female-Fronted Gothic Rock/Metal acts doing the rounds. I also noted with so many of them playing roughly the same kind of music, that each band needed to have something special to make them standout from the crowd. Everlasting Dawn have that something special; that being an innate sense of melody that infuses the songs that make up 'Seduction–Passion–Death'. The fact they also have a singer and guitarist as good as Lisa Tomantschger and Dave Slut doesn't hurt either. The music itself comes across as a glorious mix of Epica (replete with plentiful growls), Nightwish and general Melodic Gothic Metal. It also has some of the best musicianship and production values I've heard on an independent release and that is never a bad thing.

Some of my favourite tracks include the intoxicating 'Seductive Death' with it's big arrangements and powerful keyboards courtesy of Mr Slut (sounds like a character from South Park), which compliment the wonderful vocals of Tomantschger. 'Faint' with its crunching guitar riff that is married perfectly again to the pompous keyboards and where the sweet voice of Tomantschger is joined to great effect by the growls of Slut. 'Letter', which is the band's big overblown ballad, allows Tomantschger to really come into her own. Lastly there's the nine minute epic 'Suicidal Tendencies' where ED throw everything they can into the mix, just to show everyone what they can really do.

On this evidence Everlasting Dawn are hammering on the door of their contemporaries, threatening to kick it down and show them all that the new kids on the block are a force to be reckoned with. 'Seduction–Passion–Death' should therefore be on the shopping lists of all those who love Gothic Metal because it is an album that has everything fans of the genre could want; brilliant stuff indeed.
