Pressrelease from Frontiers Records:

 

Veronica “The V” Freeman is the iconic singer of the Heavy Metal heavyweights Benedictum and THE V marks a major step out of her comfort zone, since it delves into a definite melodic Hard Rock vibe.

An impressive array of talent has stepped up to assist THE V in creating her solo project on many levels. The list includes Pete Wells, Aric Avina and Rikard Stjernquist of BENEDICTUM, Michael Sweet (STRYPER), Garry Bordonaro (THE RODS), Jeff Pilson (DOKKEN, FOREIGNER), Mike Lepond (SYMPHONY X), Tony Martin (BLACK SABBATH), Leather Leone (CHASTAIN), Jerry Dixon (WARRANT), Jimmy Durkin (DARK ANGEL), Mick Tucker (TANK), Jordan Ziff (AGE OF EVIL), Derek Kerswill (UNEARTH, KINGDOM OF SORROW), Peter Tentindo (VENUS MARS PROJECT), John Herrera, Ryan Greene, Kenny Lewis, Meliesa McDonell, Michael Harris , Mel Brown and John O’Boyle.

Veronica comments: "I had a lot of input and encouragement from Frontiers to try and stretch myself with different musical styles and approaches. It was great to be able to work with Pete Wells writing some of these songs too. So, it was a no-brainer to accept their proposal for a solo album. I am a bit nervous and beyond excited!"

Be prepared! If you thought Veronica was just a Heavy Metal Amazon, you’re going to be proven dead wrong! This is a massive Melodic Hard Rock record with some great lead vocals which show a lot of the original influences that brought “THE V” to be one of the most well know and recognized voices in the current Metal scene!

As annoying as these epks are and some distracting imagery lots of these snippets sound very good.

She had me at cleavage... uh, I mean hello.

 

Except she didn't really. The music is pretty awful, but the cleavage is fucking amazing. Perfect rack, awful music. Well, that first chorus is actually pretty nice. Shame about the rest of the song. The next song is crap, though. Yeah, doesn't sound very good but her amazing rack means I may give it a second chance... maybe.

Got to review this one and tried listening to it today. First track is pretty good, but then ... oh dear.

I heard one song (probably the one above) thought it sounded good and put my name down to review it. Got half way through my first play of the album and had to turn it off. Just sayin'. :whistle:

Well, I'm going to have to listen to more tracks........what is it about the album that people are not liking? Is it that it's not ferociously heavy with lower registered vocals? Or is it that it's too different than Benedictum? Or is it that the melodies, etc. just suck?

Just the tunes. They're pretty weak, whereas the Benedictum albums usually have a few really good songs.

Just really, really average songs to me, mate. Does nothing for my ears at all. The pic does wonders for my member, though.

I feel wrong for laughing at this.

Changed my mind somewhat about the album. It isn't great, but it isn't bad either. Two or three songs I like and a few others that are okay. And in the lyrics of one song, she appears to be demanding oral sex .... I think.

 

Incidentally, the track Stefan posted today is one of the worst ones imo. "Line In The Sand
" and "L.O.V.E.
" are the standouts for me.

:lol: Don't worry, mate. If it goes to court, I got your back. ;)
