Pleasure Void - _Demo 1996_
by: Brian Meloon (2 out of 5)
This isn't really a metal demo, it's more of a hard rock thing, with a retro-70s influence, and some similarities to Marble, due mostly to the lead (female) singer's voice. It's also pretty strange, with some free-form sounding structures in places, and a general weirdness/goofiness that permeates it. That's a good thing, but doesn't really help this enough to impress me. The playing isn't very tight at times, sounds cheap at others, and it seems to be mixed too loud, so it distorts in places. There's also too much of a 70s influence for my taste, especially when ripping off the main riff from that stupid "Low Rider" song in "Perfect Mess". On the positive side, it is a competent offering from a band with a good vision of their own unique style. It's just too bad that their vision doesn't coincide with mine.
