RAIN FELL WITHIN "Refuge"
  • Album: Refuge
  • Year: 2002
  • Label: DARK SYMPHONIES
  • Artist: 
  • United States

Right after the cheered "Believe", the Americans come back with new tracks in Gothic Metal manner, with Atmospheric and Doom shades and, only now I notice, some Power Metal touches. It doesn't sound bad at all; the female voice is warm and hospitable as well but I am afraid I cannot speak about any trace of sound evolution. It basically is a sequel of the precedent album, pretty fade and in lack of other appealing elements that might be worth to be noted. It is just that, besides Dawn's voice, another one could be heard on the last track, "Passing Time". There is an intriguing cover and design of the lay-out. It is possible for the fans of peaceful Metal music to be enchanted by "Refuge"...I myself felt no thrilling emotions and I am afraid that because of missing force or musical expressiveness (and you can read between lines : no new ideas and linear interpretation),RAIN FELL WITHIN soon is about to become history!
