Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Mary and the Black Lamb is fronted by the strong-voiced Lindz Riot and they play a dark wave music that’s very engaging.

She Is sees them rock out on all cylinders guitarist Nixon Cuts growling away like a real beast and playing well.

Departed is a strong song, with Riot singing an impassioned lead against a rockin’ background. Cuts really is an exceptional guitarist.

Emily sees the band develop a softer side, Riot’s singing at its best. The song does remind me of Evanescence a bit. It’s still not quite a ballad, more a mid-pace crawl.

Forgot You Now is a strong song, also, the singer managing a feral voice to the backing.

It’s a short, sharp album that should appeal to fans of the genre and maybe others as well.
