Eyes of Verona-Ex-Voto

Eyes of Verona are one of those bands on the scene who basically play by their own rules. Sure there are elements of other genres thrown in here for flavor, but essentially, Eyes of Verona are crafting the sort of exciting new sounds that the world of female fronted rock acts really lacks. Sure, they are probably more likely to be classified under the alt-rock moniker than metal, but there are definitely heavier elements here that should be acknowledged. And anyway, most female fronted bands in metal are pretty boring, it's nice to have something of a change!

Now, one of the key elements of their new record Ex-Voto is the simple beauty of singer, Sophie's voice. It evokes a stripped down and laid back magic, the sort of basic magic that not enough bands pay attention to these days, regardless of genre. The songwriting as a whole is very tight too, using a lot of pop elements and some top notch production to really shine. Perhaps the best example of this is in the track The End of Babel with it's moving build up and powerful climax. The drumming is particularly moving, it demonstrates a lot of skill in that it perfectly captures the dynamic shifts and really pushes the Eyes of Verona sound forward, one  step at a time.

Eyes of Verona are really getting at something special now, the kind of sound that few of their peers can imitate simply because the bands skill is so great. With their special emphasis on epic keyboard parts and clearly driven song structures you won't find yourself soon bored with these French rockers. They can easily go far and as their sound evolves I think they could make a serious splash internationally. As is their songs are memorable, fun, and often touching. Able of evoking pure emotion on a fundamental level I'm looking forward to getting more from these guys!

  1. I'm here to testify about what DR. OYAGU did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 2 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Shayla Bosschart on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OYAGU on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. OYAGU prepared and sent me Healing Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after two weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. OYAGU assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. OYAGU for help via email} visit his website whatsapp him through his mobile} +2348101755322. , Thanks once again DR. OYAGU for making me a happy woman again.
