To Die For
Released: 2001, Nuclear Blast
Finland's To Die For return with what I believe is their 2nd CD release under this name, as they were formerly known as Mary-ann. EPILOGUE is 10 tracks of melodic goth-rock with a touch of metal. Vocalist Jape Peratalo offers some upbeat melodies for goth-style vocals and as an added bonus, all the songs clock at about 3-4 minutes, long enough to keep you interested. The first single 'Hollow Heart' features help from Lullacry's Tanja and is already a smash in their homeland, while the CD opener 'Crimson Twins' is probably the, dare I say, heavier of the 10 tracks. The ballad 'Veiled' is melancholy at its best, yet atmospheric. Overall, fans of bands such as Sentenced and Amorphis will be able to appreciate To Die For, along with fans of goth-rock.
