Fantazma - Last Lines For Bright Eyes
Record Label: None
Release Date: July 10, 2009
Who?

Fantazma are a female-fronted rock band from Wayne, New Jersey whose unique blend of musical styles have helped them open for bands such as We Are The In Crowd,The Scenic and ABACABB.

How is it?

Fantazma's Last Lines For Bright Eyes EP offers 8 tracks with a special blend of screamo, metal and hardcore. There's a very dark mood encircling each song, with lyrics that are very easy to relate to. Vocalist Mariella Beck can easily switch from creating beautiful clean vocals to strong growls in an instant (easily shown in tracks such as "Death by JD" and "Frantic Phonecalls"). "Before The Mess" features an ultra-catchy chorus with great drumming from Justin Arenas. "Michael" features guest vocals from JD Alam, lead singer of local New Jersey band Legend of the Fall. Their vocal chemistry is very solid especially when they shift into a frantic whirlwind of screaming at the end. Although there are a few mistakes, Last Lines For Bright Eyes clearly shows a band that is determined to make a sound completely their own.
