Blogspot Days Revisited: Brave

. . .

Female clean singing has been scarce on this site. That’s due to market conditions and taste; most metal bands using it are of the goth kind, which doesn’t interest me or you readers much. Some women sing in traditional/power metal bands, but those bands are also rare. Strangely, there’s probably more of a market now for female growling and screaming than there is for singing.

Brave seem to be dormant, which is a shame, because their singing is great, and I remember their songs vividly from when I reviewed them in ’08. I’d guess that some of the members are busy with their other band While Heaven Wept. Also, singer Michelle Loose-Schrotz is too respectable-looking to attract big label interest. That’s the world’s loss. Brave’s Monuments still holds up (and reminds me to learn The Gathering’s catalogue better). At the end of the day, it’s about songs that stick with you. Brave’s will do so for a while.
