Souls Entwined - _Untitled Demo_
by: Jackie Smit (1.5 out of 5)
Described as emotional metal by main man and sole member Roy Jacob, it turns out that Souls Entwined offer nary an emotion other than the urge to snap the CD in two. With a production that is sub-par even by demo standards, the most instantly annoying thing about this record are Jacob's vocals, which at best can be described as an ill-advised amalgamation of sighing and groaning, and even when a song like "Demon Within" looks set to become comparatively interesting, Jacob's laborious moans soon crush any potential it may have held. Performed at a speed that would make even vintage My Dying Bride sound like speed metal, the most (and indeed, only) commendable aspect of this effort is that Jacob recorded it by himself. Other than that, there's very little about Souls Entwined that warrants any form of praise.
