VALLEY'S EVE - DECEPTION OF PAIN - LIMB
This little-known band mixes elements from heavy, power and speed metal. The band has a mature sound that, for comparison purpose, can be considered as inhabiting the same plane as Annihilator, Omen and Jacob's Dream. There is little about Valley's Eve that is stunning. In particular, the vocalist, while in possession of stamina and power, is monotonous in his delivery. His shouting needs a little dazzle. What is worse, is the constant drone of the keyboards filling the sound. The problem is only bands which do not understand a rhythm guitar use keyboards. Improve the vocals, drop the keyboards and Valley's Eve is actually a tight and mature metal band. - Ali "The Metallian"
