AMANDA SOMERVILLE’S TRILLIUM – “Tectonic”
With a musically eclectic founder and front woman, American singer-songwriter Amanda Somerville (best known for being vocal coach and guest appearances and live shows garnered to date with bands like EPICA, KAMELOT and AVANTASIA), TRILLIUM is an amalgam of various elements of rock and metal, spit-polished to a blinding shine of melodic maelstrom.
As culturally diverse as they are instrumentally, the band TRILLIUM comprises spans 2 continents, 3 countries and a multitude of musical backgrounds. But the language of Rock is universal and the Lady and Gents of TRILLIUM are fluent and not afraid to speak their minds. They do leave quite the impression and a metallic taste in the mouth which is rather addictive. Amanda’s sound is eclectic yet particular, sweet yet raw and commercial yet conventionally-challenged, even if, compared to her previous record, “Tectonic” keeps a more straight and Melodic Metal edge. Just watch out for those razor blades!
