Staff review by
Strata is the debut release by newly formed New Zealand-based doom metal act Remina, featuring no other than the queen of gothic doom herself, Heike Langhans, former vocalist of the mighty Draconian. Working alongside the beautiful, ghostly presence of Heike is the talented multi-instrumentalist Mike Lamb of atmospheric black metal band Sojourner. I must say, it already sounds very appealing with this duo pulling the strings; a band with huge potential, perhaps?

Heike's voice is so otherworldly and cosmic. And since on this record it is coupled with some fairly dynamic songwriting and beautiful atmospheric soundscapes, the album is nothing short of spectacular. A cathartic journey to the nebulous reaches

Excellent album, but I kinda expected that.
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.

This is where Heike likes her gothic vibes, gothic doom metal but different as Draconian. I like it, but how long project can be alive? So far 2 albums whit Draconian, here we'll we will see, but it's future. Now we can enjoy it s while
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

I could listen to Heike's voice all day long, it's mesmerising, it's beyond this world. The album itself though is good, but it lacks really memorable moments. It's beter to listen it as a whole.

I have no idea why they used new name. It's not so different from Light Field Reverie. Anyway, most of album's strengths come from Heike.

We created a new project because LFR is becoming something more like the title track on 'Another World'. Remina is much darker, and explores the more doomy/darker aspects. And yeah, the strengths on the album are Heike, that was the intention everything was created to exclusively be a platform for her vocals.
