Seattle's female-fronted Christian Mistress harked back to classic
hard-rock of the 1970s on the mini-album Agony & Opium (20 Buck Spin, 2010).
The gallopping Riding On The Edges mixes Scandinavian epos in the melody
with Deep Purple-style panzer rhythm and instrumental break.
The passionate and majestic voice of Christine Davis steals the show in
the power ballad Desert Rose.
On the other hand, the frenzied rhythm of Home In The Sun is more punk
than metal, and Poison Path is wild rock'n'roll with a galactic guitar
solo, and these are probably the most skilled moments.
Black Vigil tries (and fails) to concoct a simpler, catchy tune, but
The acoustic to speedmetal transition of Omega Stone crowns the album
with enough pathos to justify the teutonic magniloquence (reminiscent of
Helloween and the likes).
Christian Mistress had found a winning (retro) formula and simply mined it on
Possession (Relapse, 2012)
