Solitude Within: Disappear

Solitude Within is a female fronted Belgian symphonic metal band with a debut album titled Disappear. While the band doesn't reinvent the wheel here this is a nice enough symph metal disc with outstanding lead vocals and catchy melodies throughout. In the band are Emmelie Arents (vocals, keyboard), JP Laffargue (guitar), Johan Van Criekingen (guitar), Quincy Van Overmeire (bass) and Ashley Ysewyn (drums).

The opening track "Fade Away" is a good example of what this album has to offer. Grandiose keyboard strings, heavy guitar crunch and the melodically refined voice of Emmelie Arents. Often the verses are somewhat calmer before the bombastic chorus catches the ear. This band certainly has a keen sense of melody. Other highlights include the dramatic orchestrations and riffs in "In My Mind" and the album ending "In The Dark" with its darker orchestral beginning, pleasant acoustic guitar and melodic chorus. Again, the vocals are very good.

So there you have it. Solitude Within have released a very good symphonic metal album with Disappear. If you are into that scene by all means check this one out.
