Odium - Flowing Tears & Withered Flowers - Joy Parade (CD, Album)

Almost wall to wall regret and emotional distress I'm afraid. I can very much understand a number of young metalheads taking this sort of mono-speed release very much to heart. The whole turn all the lights out and sit in your room for hours playing this thing on loop until your friends start to remove any sharp objects from within your grasp that's exaggeration for effect by the way. But the mono-syllabic nature of the musical and vocal language the band is speaking means this is a CD I will rarely listen to in the future despite giving it a number of listens to see if it spoke to me after an extended tryout.

So I am a huge Lacuna Coil fan. I happen upon an article that says "Lacuna Coil can ride the throne now, but when Razorbliss arrives, Flowing Tears will overtake the throne of goth metal", so naturally I buy the CD ond give it a whirl.

Most of the songs sound too similar, and Helen Vogt's vocals all sound the same and she never gets a chance to show off any vocal range. I do enjoy the first 5 songs, however, and hope to get into the last half of the record. However, I don't think Razorbliss can touch either of Lacuna Coil's last two releases, "Comalies" or "Unleashed Memories", both of which are far superior in my opinion.

Razorbliss is a good disc to listen to, but just don't expect to be blown away. Give Lacuna Coil a try to be blown away. Virago and Undying are my favorite songs on "Razorbliss". This is a very unique album because singer Helen Vogt sings in a deep, almost vampire like manner.

She does not use any high opera-style vocals on this album. I give her credit for taking a different approach to singing Gothic music. This is a five star album-.

Unfortunatley Century Media have spent the better of promoting Karmacode for Lacuna Coil, where as they did nothing for Flowing Tears. That in itself is sad because Razorbliss is one of the best female gothic albums I have heard this year. New frontwoman Helen Vogt is not your typical high pitched, operative style vocalist.

It doesn't outright suck or anything, but it does bring down the album's score a bit for me- the song in general seems like something which didn't quite reach its full potential. The acoustic part is a very nice piece of music, though, even though I feel it would have been improved if they either left out the male vocals or got a better singer to do them.

Even if Joy Parade isn't a flawless album, it's a truly excellent one- beautiful and poignant and brilliantly composed and performed. I consider it to be something of an unrecognized classic. The band would later change their name to simply "Flowing Tears", and eventually evolve into a much more typical gothic metal band, losing all but one of their original members, and in my opinion also losing all of their best qualities in the process.

This album, however, is a gem- one that sorely deserves to be lifted out of the obscurity it now is in. Very highly recommended if you can find it, and a must-hear if you like Katatonia or Left Hand Solution, and especially if you like both. Metal Archives loading Username Password Login.

She has a deep, sexy husky voice. Love it! Female vocalist Stefanie Duchene and drummer Eric Hilt were added to the lineup and Bersin switched to guitarist for their sophomore release, 's Joy Parade.

Big things happened when they shortened the name to Flowing Tears and released two successful albums 's Jade and 's Serpentine which saw the band move in a more gothic direction, leaving behind their doom metal roots. Now new vocalist Helen Vogt steps in for Razorbliss, which was originally released last year but now Magick Records brings it to North American audiences. It is a sad and undeniable shame that the societal majority has grown increasingly accustomed to accepting what marketing and advertising force-feeds them, as opposed to selecting the best alternative.

  8. The "Flowing Tears & Withered Flowers" albums had longer track runtimes than their major-label successors. Joy Parade was dialed back a bit after the death/doom approach of Swansongs, and sort of hit a perfect balance between lush instrumentals and passages more driven by Stefanie's vocals. Her earnest alto stands out in a genre full of soft.
