02.The Devil's Eyes
03.Wild Flower

Martamaria (Vocals)
Daniele Panza (Acoustic Guitar/Vocals)

Most of you should know the first track in its symphonic rock version as it was on a free cd given away with metal hammer a few moths back, somehow this version brings a new element to it and that is real emotion.

This same emotion is in 'Devils Eyes' along with some amazing high notes from Marta and brilliant guitar work from Dan with a definate classical influence showing through.

This is a highly chraged and very dark song summed up by the line "i dont want your body, its only dust".

There is no question in my mind that this is nothing short of perfection, it rates along side Kristen Hershes 'Your Ghost', All About Eve's 'Marthas Harbour' and Led Zeppelin's 'Battle Of Evermore'.

Next up is the rockiest track, its a guitar driven piece and again showcases Dans superb playing.

Finally we come to 'Hunted', this falls into the classic folk rock field, its a tale of a hunter a cold hearted man and is reminiscent of those old Sandy Denny/Jacqui McShee songs from the late sixties.

What can i say ?
Great guitar and very subtle backing vocals from Dan and the most amazing vocal performance from Marta go to make this the best acoustic ep i have ever heard.

Rating 10/10

For Fans Of : Achilla, Nightwish, Fairport Convention, Pentangle, The Trees
