This might be a surprise for Gothic Rock fans! Although the band has nothing uncommon to present, the sound is interesting and digestible... pleasing and professional! Taking as guiding marks bands like THE GATHERING or THE 3RD AND THE MORTAL, AENIMA's music insists on Carmen's voice while the instruments offer to the listener an incredibly comfortable atmosphere. Well, if usually Gothic Rock elements are pretty widespread to almost every band of today, the Ethereal side seems to be much developed in Portuguese's sound, which leads to a more or less distinct reverberation yet still pretty disturbing and confusing for me. I'd say that the Rock shade splices at the limit with the Ethereal one... in other words, the extroverted message seems to join successfully the exploring significance but I tell you... here from harmony is just a far away aim...Any way, this mini-album deserves all the attention and perhaps the final stand is to be settled when a full album is released.
