TO-MERA       Transcendental
Candlelight Records (release: September 11th, 2006)

With a former bassist of EXTREME NOISE TERROR starting a new band, you can expect what the music will sound like. Well, not at all because, with Julie Kiss on vocals (ex-WITHOUT FACE), Lee Barrett releases a bewitching album, where Progressive Metal, mellow acoustic pieces and melancholy keyboards are linked together, with some accelerations occurring without warning. The music is highlighted by Julie's wonderful voice here, who doesn't make tons for all her undeniable abilities, a real proof of maturity for a first attempt.Laurent
