Album Review : Virgin Death - Crimson Chrysalis 7*
There are 6 songs on the EP, opener Fuck Off And Die has the attitude, but should have packed a bit more guitar punch. Moth Around A Flame combines a string section nicely with the band and CC's voice is at it's most sultry, Epilogue has a soaring, end of epic movie the credits are rolling feel to it. The title track Virgin Death has sweeping keyboards and some good guitar parts, but the middle section is a bit of a let down and sounds rather like a Disney musical piece. Soliloque and Dragon's Roar round off the EP, both decent and nicely composed tracks.
I felt that if Virgin Death had had just a little more punch it would have been a really good album, as it is this is a good effort, and for those who like like light rock and clear vocals it makes for pleasing listening.
