Guest review by
"Darkwell" is a band from Austria that was formed in 1999. Their first album (and their best in my opinion) is "Suspiria," released in 2000 by the Austrian label, "Napalm Records."

By listening to this album, the first impression that someone gets is that their music is similar to "Tristania" and "Theatre of Tragedy." The differences here are the powerful female and the minimal male vocals. The sweat voice of Alexandra in combination with the dark, melodic sound, creates a melancholic, gothic atmosphere. This atmosphere is kept unspoiled during the whole album, despite male vocals in some songs which gives a glance of known gothic metal. This album may be one of the best in its kind, with almost all songs reaching the highest possible performance for a new band, like "Darkwell" in it's first steps into professional music.
