amazon-tularTular is an Italian act who blend Gothic and symphonic metal to comprise their sound. This female-fronted quintet’s debut THE TRUTH BEHIND THE MASK bridges the gap between Evanescence, Nightwish, and Epica, as each of the album’s 14 tracks contains a combination of big guitars and lush orchestrations to create a somber yet powerful array of textures on cuts like “Fallen Angel” and the haunting piano-led and darkly orchestrated “Dark White Flame.” Fitting nicely between your Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation discs, Tular’s debut has all of the nuances to satisfy fans of the fantasy side of the metal spectrum. www.renaissancerecordsus.comMike SOS
