Christian Mistress – Agony and Opium EP

with one comment

I caught Christian Mistress (Olympia, WA) live last night at Red 7 in Austin.  I saw someone mention that they had a NWOBHM feel about them so I went to YouTube to see if there were any clips and lo and behold, the whole new EP was up there.  I liked it enough to go see ’em.

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the biggest fan of most metal bands fronted by women, but there are always exceptions and Christian Mistress is one of them.

This band does have a bit of NWOBHM to them and the songs on the EP sounds pretty good and have some good hooks.  Her voice is a bit raspy but it works well.  You can download it from iTunes for $6!  I did.

Their live show left me with a bit to be desired.  I don’t know if it was because of the sound at Red 7 or what, but they were not very tight at all.  They’ve been on the road for a few weeks as well and typically bands that are playing out a lot get tighter live.  But this matched some of the live clips I watched on YouTube.  That being said, I’d certainly go see them live again.

Check ’em out (click fotos to enlarge).
