If I had written this review in 1997, I would probably have risen up against the fact that this first 6-track EP is a real plagiarism of the atmospheric and gothic metal gods of this period, The Gathering, even before recognizing the quality of this release. Truly, Cristina Scabbia almost has the same voice as Anneke Van Giesbergen, the riffs are as heavy as the Dutch band's, you have the same depressed feelings when you hear them both... Now we are in 2003, the apprentice has outdone the master, so I can only say that it was a perfect introduction to the present great career of this Italian band. Everything was already there: the jewel voice of Cristina, the semi-screamed vocals a la Paradise Lost of Andrea Ferro, the metal riffs generally written by Marco Coti Zelati... Without of course forgetting the poetry of the lyrics.
