Evermoore - _Dawn of Decay_
by: Pedro Azevedo (3.5 out of 5)
It's not every day that you'll hear a demo CD featuring a choir of a dozen people (including some band members), or find a band with three people sharing vocal duties -- a female lead vocalist, a part-time growler and a part-time screamer, not to mention someone who isn't even a member of the band but still contributes to one of the songs. Evermoore are a young heavy/power metal band from northern Sweden, and by young I mean their oldest member is 22 (lead vocalist Anna), most are about 18 (bassist and both guitarists), and the youngest is a rather staggering 15 years old drummer (who is also a part-time keyboardist and acoustic guitar player). Confused yet? Don't worry, you'll get the general idea inside the first minute of this demo. The lead vocals are somewhat unusual in this context, not because this is a female singer in a power metal band, but rather because her relatively delicate singing style reminds me more of gothic metal. The mixing up of various vocal styles and the pacy nature of the music helps keep things interesting, and for such an inexperienced act, Evermoore are certainly able to pull off a convincing demo. While there is plenty of room for improvement, there is nothing inherently wrong with what they're doing that they urgently need to correct; they have plenty of time ahead of them to continue honing their ideas and smoothing a few rough edges, and that's essentially what they need to focus on. I wouldn't be surprised to see them evolving rapidly into something more than just a promising young act, even though there's still plenty of work to be done.
