The comments on youtube complain that she sounds like the singer from Aqua (a Eurodance band, was relatively big in the 90s here in Russia). Which ain’t a bad thing IMO, and the whole point is to me that while the music does have some sympho/prog elements (the instrumental parts), the melody is plain out pop, which sounds quite Eurodance-y with this relentless beat.
But I’m hesitant to click “like” because I totally do not support all the cleavage shots. Damn, she’s pretty enough not to need that sort of cheap exposure.
There is a burning problem in the world of femfronted metal actually, and it’s hysterical how it’s the same problem we face in hobbyist 3D (and as far as I can see, in anime/manga type of art scene, too): boob overdose.
It’s either that, or this – a boring, casual look:
Interesting how youtube showed me one after the other.
And yet, I would vote for the first band, were it a select-one poll.
