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 in The Phantom Agony. 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, excitement reigned and I could not wait to listen to this new record. Looking at the excellent album art and some samples 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..).Got hooked? Raid this some more...
