    Elane (female-fronted gothiness inside!)

    Just discovered this song on a compilation album. A lot of these female-fronted goth-metal bands kind of blur together for me nowadays, but this is really good!
    "The greatest power one may possess -- in any situation -- is simply not to care what happens.

    "In fact, it's the only power, all others being a semblance and mockery of it. But you must also not care about possessing the power itself. So fuck it."

    Not bad, although still a little generic.

    We need more Ann Wilson-style power vocals in female-fronted metal.

    Not bad - chill, kind of pretty.

    Not too bad, but not too good either. Too many mediocre female-fronted goth bands around nowadays.

    That was decent, though it doesn't sound very gothy to me. It reminds me more of Celtic music aside from the synths, but I'm not too familiar with Celtic music, so I might be talking out of my ass here.

    Eh... Sounds like another wannabe Gathering to me. Then again, all of them sound like that to me and all pale in comparison.
    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    I thoroughly disliked it. Her voice reminds me of someone who would sing a song from one of the more intense Disney movies, like the Hunchback of Notre Dame or something.
