Millennium - _Wilderness In White_
by: Pedro Azevedo (3 out of 5)
A 30 minute demo presented with a large good-looking color booklet is a good way for the band to show that they are serious about their project, and Millennium also shows enough personality in their musical style. Not that the influences aren't there, but they do have a sound of their own. Lots of atmospheric sections, a clear gothic feel, female vocals, and keyboards dominate the music, while the guitar work doesn't stand out at all. Also, they competently use a drum machine -- although it's not used as well as on Samael's superb _Passage_. So how well does it work? Sometimes it works quite well, such as on the intro and next couple of tracks, especially the title track. But there's several rather uninteresting sequences, and, above all, the production tends to lower the overall quality. Take the female vocals as an example -- the vocalist is talented enough, but her voice doesn't sound as crystalline as it could. Still, in such a long demo as this, Millennium certainly have their good moments.
