Bruce Mel's guest vocals with Mechina led me to check out her solo stuff, which is unsurprisingly wonderful. Her voice and style are at once powerful, vulnerable and mesmerizing. Only downside is I'm left wanting more. Favorite track: Hurricane.

Brian Dempsey Perusing Spotify this week I selected a random playlist entitled "metal goddess" and found Melrose singing "Cryoshock" with Machina. The cryptic and mesmerizing voice of Mel was enough to send me searching for her material elsewhere and I landed here. Original, solid, and impressive. Big fan now and I can't wait to hear new stuff! Fav tracks are If I... and All Fall Down Favorite track: If I....

Spoon The female vocals are good in Mechina so I was curious to hear her stuff in solo. I wasn't expected something Metal and I was gladly surprise at first. However, all tracks sound familiar among themselves but the final product is solid and there is potential to hearing from this. Favorite track: Hypnotized.

Andrew Lovell I'm normally not an avid fan of the style of metal on this EP, but landed here when searching the source of those magnificent female vocals on Mechina's Acheron album. When I found Melissa Rosenberg's Melrose project, I was immediately drawn to not only her fantastic and individual singing, but also the quality of the actual songs. This is metal done right, the melodies hit you straight away and stay with you, and I am now a fan. I can't wait to see what she does next... Favorite track: Hurricane.
GeN2Mo

GeN2Mo Metal-infused Pop/Pop Rock with some sparks of Prog influence and carried by vocal hooks provided by a great singer who never plays it safe, never relies on cheese over melodic substance.
Pop Metal done right. Favorite track: Hypnotized.

Track Name: If I...
If I went under your skin
Made you feel your fingertips electrified
Maybe I would realize
this isn't something that you can just compromise
If I sit and listen
Try to make you understand this isn't my plan
This sinking sand reaching out my hands

Try to fight it out or let it go
Take it really fast or way too slow

There's no way of knowing just what it
takes to get through (X2)

If I tried to take it all back
Disappear make you wanna wonder
If I had realized this isn't something
that you can compromise
If I gained control of myself
Showed you that even the damaged can heal

Try to fight it out or let it go
Take it really fast or way too slow

There's no way of knowing just what it
takes to get through (X2)

If I
(Recall: It makes you wonder)
If I
(Recall: These lifeless outcomes)
If I
(Recall: We are the future)
If I
(Recall: Electricity; we will remember)


Try to fight it out or let it go
Take it really fast or way too slow

There's no way of knowing just what it
takes to get through
Track Name: Hypnotized
Can't tell you how I feel in times like these
Memories, they come alive
Haunting my mind
The movement in the dark sets a burning spark
You really think you mean something to me,
You're just a beautiful face and so out of place

I can see right through your eyes
I can see passed all the lies
Come to far to drown in this
Just keep running away
Giving up every part of you
I can taste your fear

Don't you feel so hypnotized?
Thought you had me, but I'm alive

I can see right through your eyes
I can see passed all the lies
Come to far to drown in this
Just keep running away
Giving up every part of you
I can taste your fear

Don't look through the window
(Recall: Through the window)
You won't see me
(Recall: won't see me)
Fighting all of my demons
(Recall: demons)
From somewhere deep within

You really made a big mistake by giving up on me
Taught me everything was just a lie
Eat my heart out
It's not me who needs you
I tried to show you the light
The only thing I gained from you was an endless night
The black hole inside your chest consumes the life of things
and every time I back away the silence just gets loud
The strength of an enemy was confused with the end of me
Try to push me all the way down
Actually lifted me from the ground

I can see right through your eyes
I can see passed all the lies
I can see right through your eyes
I can see passed all the lies
Track Name: Nothing Lasts Forever
Everything that you feel
Everything that you see
was just a moment in time
and time just isn't kind

Don't you know that I can't run away
From the world that I'm trying to save
It may be a lost cause, but now I can see

A journey alone is not a journey at all
Nothing Lasts Forever
Time may not be kind
but time stops in your arms
in the end nothing
Nothing Lasts Forever

It doesn't matter if you think I'm crazy
'cuz I'll always be around
Everything that you think you have seen
was not the last of me
Don't you know that I can't run away
from the world that I'm trying to leave behind

A journey alone is not a journey at all
Nothing Lasts Forever
Time may not be kind
but time stops in your arms
in the end nothing
Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing Lasts Forever
Nothing Lasts Forever
This moment in time
Just isn't Kind

A journey alone is not a journey at all
Nothing Lasts Forever
Time may not be kind
but time stops in your arms
in the end nothing
Nothing Lasts Forever
Track Name: All Fall Down
In this empty house, the faith, it seems so weak
If you only knew the colors that minds can make
With every step you take
just remember when you promised me
you'd never leave

Lets start this dreaming
that you have talked so much about, about
We'll all fall down
Get lost forever and never spill a single word, a word
They'll never know

In everything I mend
These words you comprehend
Deserve these words you've never heard
Lets say I won the battle
I'll leave you all behind
Standing there
One by one
watch you all fall down

With every step you take
just remember when you promised me
you'd never leave

Lets start this dreaming
that you have talked so much about, about
We'll all fall down
Get lost forever and never spill a single word, a word
They'll never know

Lets start this dreaming
that you have talked so much about, about
We'll all fall down
Get lost forever and never spill a single word, a word
They'll never know
Track Name: Hurricane
You started telling me to let you in
but when I feel, it just never ends
You think of patterns and your place in time
Just close your eyes & 1,2,3 you’re mine

These circles & fake smiles start their breathing
Your posture just couldn’t be more deceiving
You think of patterns and your place in time
Just close your eyes & 1,2,3

We’ll drop to the floor
make a mess, take our lives
like a hurricane (x3)

Well come on baby reach a little bit higher
How are you supposed to trust without desire?
I think of patterns & my place in time
Just close my eyes & 1,2,3 you’re mine

One day you’ll be alone and start to wonder,
"How did I ever end up this far under?”
I think of patterns & my place in time
Just close my eyes & 1,2,3

We’ll drop to the floor
make a mess, take our lives
like a hurricane (x3)

Don’t underestimate it,
We don’t know what it’s capable of
Its fury’s feared and hated
You’ll find out what I’m capable of (x2)

We’ll drop to the floor
make a mess, take our lives
like a hurricane (x4)
