Perfect music for any Sunday
Swedish goth rock quintet Marble Arch originally started out life as Evercry back in 1994. It has taken all this time for them to finalise a lineup, complete rehearsals and demos, and settle on a record label before they were finally able to release Another Sunday Bright.
Their style is a mix of various elements of goth, metal and rock and roll, but maintains a balance that provides a strong album from beginning to end. Finnish producer Anssi Kippo (Children Of Bodom, Entwine, Lullacry) was chosen to produce this, their debut album. The powerful, yet dark and often moody vocals of Johan Wadelius sit perfectly within the dynamic arrangements of the ten tracks delivered here, several of which contain some great complimentary vocal harmonies adding more emotion to each of those tracks. Fellow Sinner, Dead Air and End of Words all feature Lullacry vocalist Tanja Lainio providing backup vocals that offset Wadelius' voice perfectly. In doing so, these tracks become the highlights on an album that is consistently good from start to finish.
When an album by an artist in a genre that is not typically a part of your musical diet comes along and makes a good impression, it's always a nice surprise. This is definitely one such album. This album has been in the making since the bands inception, and it's a damn fine first effort and well worth the wait.
