Octavia Sperati
Winter Enclosure (Candlelight)

By: Mike SOS

Ocatavia Sperati is an all-female Norwegian Goth rock troupe whose 11-track disc displays mid-tempo melancholic metal that merges the wares of Lacuna Coil with Evanescence with a discernibly heavier edge, thanks to the biting guitars on tracks like "Below Zero". Even though an air of luxurious melodies via keyboards, pianos, and angelic lead vocals is very much apparent throughout WINTER ENCLOSURE, the band lapses into Paradise Lost meets My Dying Bride territory on tracks like "Icebound" and "Wasted on the Living" quite a bit, sinking their collective teeth into a heavier realm which most female bands dare to go. If you enjoy the work of bands like The Gathering, Nightwish, or the other aforementioned groups, then Octavia Sperati is a disc worth checking out.
