Vera : Home crafted demo from Didier Strentz, hailing from Metz in France, who mentions influences from Tiamat and The 69 Eyes. All fine with these influences and the title track ‘Emerged From The Dark’ is obviously inspired by Tiamat. This kind of gothic metal / dark rock can be fine. Until vocals join in… hmmm… low-ranged distant murmuring and the knowledge of English language and its pronunciation leaves much to be desired. It even gets worse in the next songs. Soon it gets ultimately clear that Didier really has to look for a proper vocalist with more possibilities and craft on his side before recording another demo. Actually, only the title track is quite okay and then we are really mild and generous. .
