Album Review

Monica Richards and William Faith spool their archangel glory and Celtic auras to spawn a dramatic third album, Evidence of Heaven, the first for the duo's Mercyground label. A heavy storybook of dark romanticism, archaic in nature, mold the illustrious theatrics found on Evidence of Heaven. Faith's guitar work is scalding, fiercely driven over Richards' haunting vocalics. Sonically, the band's demeanor is roughcast around dripping poetics, specifically on "Scars Flown Proud."

But even during their existence, the Faith's music hinted at what was to come, softening the standard-issue hardcore approach somewhat with better-developed melodies and a more inward-looking perspective.
