In comparison to Fear Of God's earlier release, Within The Veil, I found Toxic Voodoo to be just an average release. It is a very heavy release musically, but something seems to be missing. This may possibly be because other than vocalist Dawn Crosby, this is an entirely differnt band. I don't feel they have the same chemistry the original band member's had.The other problem I found was in Dawn's vocals. Althogh she had some verey raspy vocals on their first release, she also had some very clear parts to the cd. The way everything was arranged between the two different vocal styles resulted in a tremendous sound for the finishe product. On this release the clearer sounding vocals are very, very few to say the least,while the harsher sound is far more prelavent. Without the mix It just dose'nt work as well.This one may work for those who enjoy the sound of todays raspy sounding bands, but for me It was a huge let down from the earlier material.
