Metalite: Biomechanicals

There are a plethora of, to use the anachronistic label, female-fronted metal bands out there at the moment mostly from mainland Europe and many mining a similar symphonic, gothic vibe. I happen to dig most of them. Mrs Simon often tells me that powerful women singers are my thing and also strong women in general but let's leave that there. Metalite have a new powerful singer on board.

Erica Ohlsson is the new voice/face and she fits in very nicely into the band on an album which is a step up from the debut album. “We see ourselves as a modern band that works differently than most of the Melodic Metal bands out there, “says guitarist Edwin Premberg. There's some truth in that. Like say, Amaranthe, Metalite add a smidge of EDM to their sound which makes for an interesting mix yet the pop sensibilities of the debut album still exist on catchy songs such as the sublime "Mind of a Monster", "World on Fire" and the excellent "Eye of the Storm" which makes for a very satisfying middle section of the album which isn't something you can say very often these days. In truth, this is a really strong, relatively straightforward piece of modern pop/metal which deserves a wide audience given the strength of the playing (especially the guitars) and the songs.
