5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding debut October 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Few new bands can release killer debut albums like To-Mera. Formed only a year ago by Lee Barrett of Extreme Noise Terror and Julie Kiss of Without Face, To-Mera quickly grew into a full band with the addition of fantastic drummer Akos Pirisi, keyboardist Hugo Sheppard, and guitarist Tom Maclean, both of whom are schooled musicians. Sheppard's keyboard and piano playing lends the songs a very dynamic edge, often delving into classical and jazz territory, while Maclean's challenging fretwork is nothing short of mind-blowing. Not only is he technically superior to most prog bands' players, he also covers a wide spectrum of styles, fusing brutally heavy death metal-like riffs with intense, harmonically rich melodic signatures.

Most female-fronted metal bands write material that undeniable gives off a gothic air, relying heavily on orchestrated keyboard parts with the occasional crunch-filled guitar work. Some listeners will be quick to compare To-Mera with the likes of Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation, and perhaps even Nightwish and The Gathering. Not that anything is wrong with these bands, but To-Mera is a completely different beast musically. For starters, they are crushingly heavy progressive metal, serving all aspects of this much stagnated genre, but they do inject calmer acoustic passages along with jazzy interludes into their craft as well. Vocalist Julie Kiss whose Eastern European accent lends her already dark voice an extra layer of depth and character is a great fit for the band. Her soft, fragile soprano-like vocals in the intro "Traces" turn into expressive and melodic singing on the haunting "Blood", putting her semi-operatic delivery on display.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece August 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is a masterpiece from beginning to end. Buy it! You won't be disappointed! At first it took me a while to warm up to this CD, but Blood really roped me in. The more I listened, the more each song became a jewel to me. I so wish they could tour America! Very prog/jazz/goth, Julie is amazing and the guitars are awesome. I love singing Born of Ashes, a great song. And the lyrics are up my alley, too, like a vivid nightmare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Dynamic March 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains nothing but solid musicmanship. I'm a huge fan of progressive metal, and what's great about this band is their ability to maintain heavy instrumentals while keeping the vocals sultry. The piano playing is great and gives To-Mera's overall sound a classical feel. It's really hard to classify this type album due to it's diversity; there are elements of speed metal, symphonic metal, prog metal, jazz, classical, etc... I would recommend this technical masterpiece to anyone who is a fan of progressive metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Original February 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I was skeptical for a while on buying this album, but I heard good things so I decided to give them a try and it was worth it!

This album does have to grow on you. I loved the song "Blood" immediatly, but the other songs took some time. Once I gave it enough listens, I fell in love with the entire album. Julie's voice is simply beautiful and unique among the Femme Metal world. I think they're a breath of fresh air and great for fans of Nightwish, Within Temptation, After Forever or Therion.
