Review Type: 

Enchantya is a band hailing from Portugal, and with this album they deliver their first work to the world.  They are fronted by Rute Fevereiro, whom some of you might know from Black Widow, a all female band, but which she left in 2004.

What this band brings us is progressive Goth metal, with female vocals. That the group consists of excellent musicians cannot be denied, especially the keyboards leave a very good impression, but the duo guitarists also give a great performance.

While Rute has a very clear voice with a reasonable reach, but sometimes overdoes it a bit, by this I mean she opts to much for an operatic sound, whereas I would have liked her to sing in a normal way from time to time.  She also can perform a great growl.

This is a nice debut for a young band.
