Moment of Eclipse
Released: 2006, Independent
They Await hails from Wichita, Kansas and was formed in 2004 by Jaime Mai, former guitarist of Century Media recording artists Hostility and Gulch. Originally the idea of the band was to be a Studio Project, but it eventually changed into a full-fledged band. MOMENT OF ECLIPSE is their debut EP, and this as a presentation card is very interesting.
They Await play mid-tempo Heavy Metal with a very heavy dark influence. They somehow reminded me of Danzig in the musical side, while Spazz, the vocalist has a very original and heavy tone, that can go from being dreamy to desperate.
The first three songs of the EP are extremely good and have a very thick and dark production. Unfortunately the last 2 were recorded in a different time-lapse and that lost my attention a bit. I hate when within one release you hear two completely different productions, especially when one is ok and the other very good. So I guess I will stick with the first 3 songs. And just to not let it pass by, the last song is an industrial-Goth-Metal piece that has its moments.
They Await have the power to come up with something interesting for their debut CD. I encourage you to check them out if you are a lover Dark Metal with some industrial touches. Interesting band indeed. Stay Heavy!!!
