There has been a continual rise in the amount of heavier bands with female vocalists, proving what a success the right combination can produce. But how many do we need? It seems you have the top acts like Epica, Nightwish, After Forever, and Within Temptation, then so many similar sounding bands circling below waiting for their chance. It's typical of a lot of things we are subjected to, in that if it's popular then it's milked to the max.
Gothic metal/rock band Forever Slave's new CD is titled Tales For Bad Girls, times have been good for the band touring Europe with two of the big names in Kamelot and Firewind. On this album Forever Slave changed their style and seen New Metal and American Alternative Rock influences come into play.
Lady Angellyca is the voice of the band, Sergio handles Bass ,Os brings the Guitars , Leal delivers Keyboards and skin pounder Edward Vert gives the beat. Opener "Dickhead!" interesting title, I suppose, we all know or have seen a few of them, this and "Say Good-Bye" are mid speed rockers. "GothiX Girls" is more of a nu-metal groover with a very cool chorus. Track six "Afterlife" sounds silimar to Within Tempation, another good song. "Larmes Et Roses" is a fun, upbeat catchy number and one of the times some male vocals make an appearance during the album..
Sure, Tales For Bad Girls is not the freshest release I've heard in a while, as there are plenty of similarites to other acts, but it's still a good album and they are trying different things, end result is it's been getting multiple spins in my player.
