Sarah Jezebel Deva/Malediction/Listenable Records/2012 EP Review


  Sarah  Jezebel  Deva  is  an  artist  from  the  United  kingdom  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  which  plays  a  gothic  and  symphonic  form  of  metal  with  a  black  and  doom  metal  touch  and  this  is  a  review  of  her  2012  ep  "Malediction"  which  was  released  by  Listenable  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  drumming  with  not  much  in  the  way  of  fast  playing  or  blast  beats,  while  the  keyboards  bring  a  very  atmospheric,  gothic  and  symphonic  sound  to  the  music,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  is  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to mid  paced  gothic  metal  riffs  that  utilize  some  black  and  doom  metal  influences  as  well  as  a  great  amount  of  melody  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  and  there  are  little  to  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  are  mostly  clean  singing  female  vocals  as  well  as  some  male  clean  vocals  along  with  some  deep  death  metal  growls  and  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  being  utilized  on  the  last  song  in  addition  there  is  also  a  brief  spoken  word  part,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  depressive  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Sarah  Jezebel  Deva  and  if  you  are  a fan  of  her  past  work,  you  should  enjoy  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "This  Is  My  Curse".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.

Sarah Jezebel Diva/The Corruption Of Mercy/Listenable Records/2011 CD Review


  Sarah Jezebel Diva is a singer from England that has been a part of many well known metal projects that had here previous album reviewed in this zine that plays a style that mixes symphonic, ambient and gothic metal together with a black metal edge and this is a review of her 2011 album "The Corruption Of Mercy' which was released by Listenable Records.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some occasional blast beats, while the keyboards are very dark, symphonic and atmospheric sounding with an industrial edge, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound powerful.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast melodic gothic metal riffs that still have a small amount of a black metal influence, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads.

Vocals are all clean singing female vocals that are very operatic sounding mixed in with some whispered vocals, while the lyrics touch on dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark and professional sound to it.

In my opinion this is another decent album from Sarah Jezebel Diva and if you where a fan of her past album, you probably wont be disappointed. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No Paragon Of Virtue" "Pretty With Effects' and "The Eyes That Lie". RECOMMENDED.

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


  Sarah Jezebel Deva is a well known singer in the Symphonic 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 mid paced 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 mid paced 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 occasion mixed in with some clean singing 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 "Daddy's Not Coming Home".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
