From Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada comes the Gothic, Symphonic Metal outfit Celestial Ruin. The band has not been together for a long amount of time, yet their debut EP; “The Awakening” boasts professionalism in both the musicianship and songwriting. The opening track “From Beneath You” begins with a thumping bass to open the song as the track quickly morphs into a catchy, straight-forward metal track. “Goddess” is next and begins with a slower tempo as the truly beautiful vocals of Larissa Dawn joins in. As the song progresses the tempo speeds up and gets heavier. This song quickly became my favorite of the four songs featured here. “Behind These Doors” is next and begins with a nice piano intro, before developing into a nice, melodic mid-tempo number. Vocalist Larissa Dawn shows off her diversity on this one. “The Hunted” neatly wraps things up, after about 18-minutes. Celestial Ruin is currently looking for a label and if they continue to progress, based on what is presented on “The Awakening”, they should find a home in no time. This band has tons of potentia.
Rating - 73/100

From Germany, A Million Miles play what can be described as melodic, aggressive metal with buzz-saw like guitar riffs. Their debut EP “Left” has just been released and although it features only 5-songs and about 25-minutes worth of music, the band fronted by vocalist Mona makes each second count. A Million Miles offers something a little different than a lot of female fronted bands these days. Their sound is more basic, stripped down and raw. In lead vocalist Mona the band has a frontlady with a ferocious singing style but someone who also manages to be melodic at the same time. From the pounding drum intro to “What’s Left Behind” the band commences with an all out metal blitzkrieg throughout the duration of “Left”. The final song “Walk All Night” starts off with a slower tempo before picking up and quickly becoming one of the best songs. With “Left” A Million Miles is sure to please fans who love their metal with a bit of an edge. That’s what I love about A Million Miles. The songs are aggressive, yet still melodic and coherent.
