RockmusicRaider Review - Trillium - Alloy - Album CoverI have been a fan of Amanda Somerville ever since she appeared on my radar, mainly perceived as a background singer at first. This when starting to review ‘Epica‘s tribulations. Then her other talents and projects came to light, such as the Kiske/Somerville records that have brought her some considerable fame. And here she is with her own production and début album ‘Alloy‘ of her gig ‘Trillium‘.

So, I was quite excited to listen to this, looking at the excellent album art and some examples found on YouTube – expectations running high. But – hells, bells – whilst attempting to place itself in the Gothic Metal arena (without growls, much to my relief..), ‘Alloy‘ really bends towards a rocky version of the Pop Metal universe (I am leaning far out the window here..) and some rehashed versions of other styles that we all heard before, trying to get in with the likes of ‘Evanescence‘ and such. Got hooked? Raid this some more...
