Everybody praises these Americans' activity. Their debut, entitled "Before an Audience of Stars", had unexpected great sales as the former name, ARISE FROM THORNS, brought them quite good luck. Finally, the four changed the name into BRAVE and, after "Waist Deep In Dark Waters"-EP, release this album, enjoying great support and promotion from Dark Symphonies. More progressive and Pop than the previous one rather more technical and thorny with a lot more Power shades, the new material is still focused on female voice, Rock rhythms slowly replacing Gothic Metal so that the sound becomes more commercial and less mysterious ...in THE GATHERING style. It wouldn't be fair to say that the album is a modest one but I cannot praise it either. With no energy or vigour, BRAVE is in possession of few meditative passages and great melodiousness , that is probably why this band can only impose in front of those who admire calm relaxing Rock music.
