GODYVA

"In Good and Evil" (Razor Ice; 2006)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

 

"In Good and Evil" is an engaging combination of progressive metal, Goth and haunting female vocals. It's as though somebody blended Cradle of Filth with Queensryche and threw in a little Lacuna Coil to stir up the mix.

This CD is nowhere as edgy as Cradle of Filth or as intense as Lacuna Coil, and it sounds a little simpler than Queensryche but the ethereal vocals of Lady Godyva give the songs here a buoyancy all their own. And, although the just over one hour running time seems a little long by the time you hit the third-to-last track, "In Good and Evil" is strong enough to hold your attention throughout. 

Godyva: Lady Godyva - vocals; Frahn - guitars; Enyo - drums; Nick - bass; Botys - keys.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
