September Mourning is a new signing to Sumerian Records that combines the concept of a comic book character with music.

First thing I pick up on is the album seems to sound like a more poppier version of Lacuna Coil and In This Moment, with a dramatic theme that don’t seem to translate too much to the music. I think the big problem is the music here lacks identity, almost as if it’s an afterthought to the concept and theatrics.

Most of this with it’s over glossed production, doesn’t hide the fact that there’s not much to these songs. Nothing really stood out to me other than the fact after presented with this, the listener could have just listened to In This Moment or Lacuna Coil. It just sounds like any other female led active rock radio band.

Bottom Line: this probably only appeals to fans of the comic concept “A murder of reapers.” If you’re going to do a multi platform project, you should make sure you’re putting more thought into every area, otherwise this comes off like Deion Sanders baseball career as opposed to his football career.
