“Symphonic metal has a pretty niche audience -- those who like the clean (often female) vocals, but also the huge riffs and double-kick metal brutality. There aren't many other bands like Second Empire around Pittsburgh, and those who fall into the niche are lucky to have them, because they do it well. Epic stuff, with Alex Lindsay Roth's vocals powerful but not comically operatic, as tends sometimes to happen with this kind of music. Well done.”
