A very young band from Italy that came into being by 2005, they have just released their debut album and launched a tour in England recently; three guys and a girl: Finch (drums), Daniele (bass), Michael (guitar) and Federica (vocals). The latter looks really nice, too, but I have to say that her vocal abilities cannot live up to that. Stylistically the music is something between Lacuna Coil (just listen e.g. to "Heartshell") and the Cranberries, plus a touch of Nu Metal. Still I would this band rather put into the Indie/Alternative section than to "Metal". Real catchy powerful songs that somehow stick out are missing, and also a more powerful voice. Federica sounds a bit too high an thin, style Cranberries, and sometimes there´s even distortion - therefore the album is hardly more than average.
