I am a fan of Within Temptation, Epica, Sirenia, etc., and for me Krypteria holds a place along side of them. The female lead singer (and pianist) Ji-In Cho has great range and variety in her vocals and the chorus sings with power. The piano arrangements are extremely interesting; I listen for them in each piece. Ms. Cho’s vocals are crisp and precise, and the richness of the harmonics in her voice are equal to Sharon den Adel’s.
My favorites on Bloodangel’s Cry are “Somebody Save Me” and “The Night All Angels Cry”, but these are the cream of the crop since there is not a weak song amongst the twelve on the CD. On top of this, the lyrics are meaningful and speak to me. I strongly recommend this CD to fans of female-fronted symphonic goth metal (or whatever the correct term for this genre is). Enjoy!
