We’re so very excited to share the news that the legendary Metal Hammer Magazine has given our “Afterlife” EP a great review in their May 2013 print issue! Big thanks to the publication! Pick up a copy at stores around the globe! Here in the U.S., you can find Metal Hammer at many local stores, including Barnes and Noble!
Here’s what Metal Hammer writer Natasha Scharf had to say about Upon Wings:
“Hypnotic gothic rock that flits between symphonic and operatic metal while showcasing Anne Autumn Erickson’s dramatic vocals. Less bombastic than Tarja and not quite as flowery as early Within Temptation, but with a charm that is all its own.”
Hey, guys! It’s been a minute, but we’re back with some great news: another good review of “Afterlife!”
Musically there is a lot to like about this band, but it was the enthralling vocals of Anne Autumn Erickson along with the thoughtful, introspective lyrics that drew me in.
Anne Autumn Erickson does have an operatic vocal style but it is not over-the-top. She knows exactly when to rein it in and be a little more subdued. Some singers are so enamored with the fact they have this immense vocal ability that sometimes they go a little overboard. Sometimes less is more, as Anne Erickson demonstrates. The opening song “Afterlife” is a perfect example of this. The vocals are breathtaking and filled with heartfelt passion. The song is also quite melodic and immediately enjoyable.
Big thanks to Jayson and Evelynn from the Women of Metal show for interviewing Anne this week! In the interview, they covered Anne’s musical influences, the writing process for Upon Wings and plans for new music! Check out the full interview here!
Thrashboy from the Metal Resource recently conducted an interview with Anne, and you can check it out via this link! They talked about everything from the inspiration behind Upon Wings’ lyrics to Anne’s favorite concert this past summer. Thanks to Thrashboy for the chat and interest in Upon Wings!
