Staff review by
Let's close out 2014 right: fans of melodic metal from across the spectrum, come together and hear Evenoire's Herons. If you like proggy, heavy symphonic metal with folk elements and absolutely ass-kicking vocals, then step right up, step right up.

The dual guitars play a vital role and keep this album very heavy, even crunchy at times, helped along by the well-mixed and hard-hitting drums (drums are especially appreciated on "Love Enslaves," and many others). Strings appear on a few tracks in a dark, cabaret-like setting, as opposed to evoking a symphony orchestra as on others. In fact, much of this album has a very subtle sinister quality to it, permeating all of the beauty.

Awesome album, was a long time since i listened to something like that, truly a masterpiece... but they really need to think about their graphist, no offence, but he doesn't have the necessary skill for the job if it wasn't for Susan Review i might be long away from listening to this album

Decent music but very annoying vocals. Feels like she is trying too much on the verge of straining her voice. I give this album rating 6, but for me it feels more like 5 because of "annoyance factor".
Anyway, I am not too much into this kind of metal ...
