Through Her Eyes: Winter of Ashes

As far as metalcore bands go, the UK-based quartet Through Her Eyes may hold some appeal to fans outside of the genre. Not too far out, of course, but at least these guys take some chances on their debut CD, Winter of Ashes. They incorporate bright melodies and a few clean vocals into the bridge of opening track "Scavengers of the Damned," for example, and add some speedy power-metal riffs and even more clean vocals to "My Place Is Nowhere."

This band has the chops, and Rich Priest's growled, angry vocals work better than some of his metalcore brethren. But Priest sounds much more effective when he's actually singing. At 33 minutes, Winter of Ashes is just about the right length for an album of this kind; if Through Her Eyes can build on some of the dynamics the band has unleashed here, though, a more powerful and more intriguing album could emerge next time.

Track Listing:
1) Scavengers of the Damned
2) Solitary
3) Bloodlust
4) My Place Is Nowhere
5) Smile Carved from Bone
6) Winter of Ashes
7) Injustice
