ForeSin - Enarxis
Goth, Electro 'Enarxis' is the 2009 debut album from German ForeSin released on Danse Macabre. The emotions of feelings around it remind me a bit of Diary of Dreams, but the guitars are mostly used during the choruses if not excluded at all. The big difference though is that where Diary of Dreams reaches the top of the pole, ForeSin barely gets of the ground (yeah, I just did a Super Mario parable).

While the music ranges from generic to pretty good, especially during the piano parts, I find the vocals to be a bit strange. It sometimes sounds like the singer is singing while yawning. The notes are taken so far back of is throat that the first thing that come to mind is a stereotypical ghost voice in a children movie.

Sometimes things line up though, like in the track "Soulsick" with the female back up singer, but even then, I have a terribly hard time to withstand the vocals. When I think of it, I think that is actually the breaking point for me. With a great voice, the rating could have been something completely different. There's nothing lifting it up, simply energy draining mumbling.

One track to take with you from this album is "Abducted" with great synth melodies and a nice flow during the chorus.

The vocals are by far the make or break for ForeSin, if they manage to do something about it, things can really turn around for them.
