Staff review by
The Provenance is this unfairly ignored Swedish band which used to play well-made gothic metal with female plus extreme male vocals, like a good thousand other bands, but with a great deal of originality that distinguished them from the rest. Their second album Still At Arms Length had been critically acclaimed for its fair melodies and its overall excellence. How things can change in just two years... Most bands usually remove progressively all the extreme elements from their music, but not The Provenance. They've thoroughly changed the whole sound of their compositions. It can't be the same band! They got rid of the extreme vocals, of the fast-paced tempos and of the most blatantly metal features of their music, such as the heavy riffs or the acute production. And I have a much more mixed opinion on How Would You Like...
