“Quotes & Testimonials”
“Looking at the sober facts, there is definitely potential for a larger fan base, because with the references named THE AGONIST, INFECTED RAIN and JINJER mentioned in the press release, the five-piece around frontwoman Venerate Miercy should actually have hit the nerve of the times. And yes, I also have to attest to the opener ‘A Tyke Called Mike’ that the trademarks of the genre are served excellently here. The riffs are lower-pitched and groovy, Venerate barks and growls powerfully and when it comes to it, she can also carry a larger chorus hookline and thus refine the song. In addition to the references already mentioned, the genre forefathers KORN also come to mind, who left their mark on the guitar work of the five-piece.” – Tobias Dahs, Powermetal.de. (Translated from German) https://www.powermetal.de/review/review-Evernoir/Stages_Of_Grief,40671,40459.html ““Raven” by Evernoir is a combination of fierce screams, dynamic guitar riffs, and powerful clean vocals. Evernoir has an impressive vocal range and the ability to switch from harsh growls to a clearer tone. The blend of the heaviness of the lyrics with melodic and symphonic elements creates a captivating and unique listening experience. “Raven” an alternative metal/ rock song about the struggle and complexities of mental health, conveying a powerful message about self-discovery and the quest for happiness in midst of suicidal ideations. Evernoir longs for peace and tranquility in their lives, but they seem to be grappling with self-hatred and feeling as though they are on the verge of collapse. The vulnerability and introspection in the lyrics make the song a raw and relatable expression of human emotions and the longing for inner healing and growth.” – Gabrielle Larochelle, Musicfashionblog.com. https://musicfashionblog.com/raven-evernoir/?fbclid=IwAR2BrFXuFnrWM3z5xM4_duazzIpnpIMwjeu6LhAoVmPILw6mVQY1b9y-HJc
