Sarah Jezebel Deva/A Sign Of Sublime/Candellight Records/2010 CD Review

Sarah Jezebel Deva is a well known singer in the Symponic Metal genres and this is a review of her solo album "A Sign Of Sublime" which was released by Candlelight Records during the year of 2010.

Drums are mostly midpaced beats with little to no fast playing or blast beats, while the keyboards are very symphonic and atmospheric sounding, as for the bass playing it has a dark tone with riffs that follow the guitars.

Rhythm guitars are mostly midpaced riffs that sound very basic but having influences from mainstream black metal and symphonic/gothic metal, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos that have a tragic feel to them.

Vocals are mostly clean singing female vocals that are very operatic with some black metal screams being used on ocassion mixed in with some cleansinging male opera choirs, while the lyrics cover depression with a very dark edge, as for the production it sounds very professional and you can hear all of the instruments that are present on this album.

In my opinion this is a good album from Sarah Jezebel Deva, at first I thought I probably would not like this album due to the singer's involvement in the corporate metal scene but this is a quality dark sounding album in it's own way and it is well done for what it is. RECOMMENDED TRACKS "A Sign Of Sublime" "The Devil's Opera" and "Daddys Not Coming Home".
