I hate to start off a review like this, but here goes. Zzzzzz... Okay, the snoring may be a bit too much, but after multiple listens of the Swedish band's latest release, _Fevered_, I am not interested in them. Sure, the music delivered by LHS is dark, tormented stylings of gothic/metal, but it lacks something. The music just doesn't seem to rise above a certain degree of intensity or keep the listener interested. Sure, singer Mariana Holmberg has a haunting vocal style when she sings, but it seems to not connect with the music of the band. Maybe something within the band hasn't clicked yet (as Holmberg replaced original singer Kicki Hoijertz), and the band needs one album and possibly a tour to work it out? I'm being straight to the point here: This album is missing something. An element of band exploration and compatibility between singer and her band is almost non-existent. Better luck next time.
