SIREN'S CRY

"Scattered Horizons" (Nightmare Records; 2013)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Rock'n'roll fronted by women is nothing new. Just think Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane (then Starship), Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart and Pat Benatar ... just to name a few.

Over the past few years, however; there seems to have been a major influx of female-fronted heavy metal acts. Some of those acts have females (i.e. Otep Shamaya, Doro Pesch and Sarah Jezebel Deva of Cradle of Filth) who sing/growl just as good or better than any male out there. Then there is Sirenís Cry and their release "Scattered Horizons."

Siren's Cry is a female-fronted band with vocals you can understand every word of and still enjoy the hard rock aspect of the musical experience. It is loaded with some great rock'n'roll and, when I listened to this CD, I was transported to a magical land, inhabited by dark and slightly twisted images.

Sirenís Cry has it all: excellent rock'n'roll, a great singer and a talented band to make "Scattered Horizons" a truly great hard rock release.

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.
