Review by Sarah Bernardi

I’d like to introduce you to Butterfly Messiah. Definitely one of the most intriguing bands that I’ve had the privilege to come across, their uplifting blend of electronic, ethereal sounds remains within my immortal soul.

Their latest full-length release “Eternal” is nothing short of extraordinary, and is sure to please the people on the dance floor as well as the priestesses within the circle. Shannon’s otherworldly vocals transcend time and space as Robert Davis and Joshua Harrington arrange the soundscapes that complete the album.

The album opens with “For Today”, a great introduction to what’s to come. My personal favorites include “Virtual”, “Ascension”, and “Eternal”. Throughout the album there is a bigger theme that explores the human soul’s connection to the universe and the powers above. Butterfly Messiah definitely provides a positive message, and brings a breath of fresh air to the industry with their unique blend of dance and ritual.

Butterfly Messiah is definitely a band to watch.
