Review: Sad Alice Said: Yesterday's Tomorrow

This isn't so much an album but actually a compilation of their singles and EP released between 2011 & 2013 and I must say it's a fantastic release from these Gothic Metallers.

Formed in the Ukraine in 2005 as Alice in Wonderland before changing their name to Sad Alice Said in 2011, they have released 4 singles and an EP to date and now this compilation album.

Vocalist Alisa Shakor has the voice of an angel and sounds very like Sharon Den Adel from Within Temptation, nothing wrong with that comparison in my book.

The album starts with first single Open Your Eyes which hits hard instantly and what's noticeable is the fact that this band sing in English, so what you might be thinking but quite a lot of bands from Ukraine, Russia etc...Sing in their mother tongue.

Fade is my particular favourite track on first listen, lyrically and sonically beautiful but this can be said for much of the album if not all of it


Clock of Eternity starts with an eerie effect before building into a crescendo of Gothic wonderment and wouldn't sound out of place on a Nightwish album.

The album closes with a beautifully crafted ballad called Garden Of Our Thoughts, so if you like Gothic Metal then you'll love this release, if you don't then you're not listening to it properly, I for one hope to hear more from these ladies & gentlemen in the not too distant future.

I know a single called Stay is in the pipeline but really hope an album is forthcoming before the end of the year or early next year.
