A truely brilliant album thats sound is both beautiful and haunting.
With many of my favourite female fronted metal bands disbanding, changing singers, or just changing (mentioning no names)- It is truely enthralling to have discovered this Gem.
I truely hope that they play live near me sometime in the not to distant future!

I first saw Pythia live at their debut show in December 2007 supporting ex-Nightwish front woman Tarja. I was captivated from the first song by both the musicianship and striking image of their front woman, Emily Ovenden. Since then i've awaited recorded output from the band with great interest.
Having heard "Beneath The Veiled Embrace" it has surpassed my expectations! This is a truly stunning debut with, in my opinion, not a bad track. From the dramatic opening of "Sweet Cantation" to the haunting piano loop on closing track "No Compromise" this album is an absolute pleasure and firmy marks Pythia as a serious UK challenger to the major European bands such as Nightwish and Within Temptation.
There are too many great songs to go into detail here but from the memorable chorus of debut single Sarah, the full on power metal of "Ride to Glory" and the wonderful, epic climax of "Oedipus" there is something for any Rock/Metal fan. Ovenden's vocal versatility is very impressive and she uses a variety of styles in the course of this album backed by a fine collection of technically gifted musicians.
All in all a wonderful debut and i would encourage anyone to check this out and catch the band soon at a town near you!
