The Divine Madness - Precious
The Divine Madness
Gothic Alternative
4 stars

Oozing from the cracks of society and the release of pleasure, The Divine Madness will shoot to the top with a fantastic EP of melodic gothic alternative music. “Precious” opens with the track “Closer”, also the first video. “Closer” starts off with an angelic vocal that rings from the heavens. Victoria’s voice and the subtle keyboards of Chris Ride are exciting, bringing visions of an innocent shy child as they breakout in an elevated style. “Closer” would be something to hear with a full orchestra.

Vocally, Victoria reminds me of a mixture of Natalie Merchant of 10,000 Maniacs and Amy Lee of Evanescence. She will bring attention to the band-not only with her great pipes but also her great beauty. Check out the video and see what I mean!!! “Crawl” caught my attention: while listening, I felt the beat of Gary Glitter's "Do You Wanna Touch Me” (Oh Yeah), a song which later became a favorite of Joan Jett on her “Bad Reputation” CD.

There is not a bad song on this entire EP. The band is currently working on their debut release “Secrets,” and has cut 20 tracks and a new video directed by the visionary Leigh Scott. So keep a lookout for that.

  • Victoria Mazze - Vocals
