I have turned this band’s name around in all possible angles but it still doesn’t sit well with me. I would have liked it to be Fallen Arisen and not FALLEN ARISE. But I guess that is just me being a tad to correct. I don’t care that much about a name that I’m gonna let it get in the way for of the music. There is a symphonic touch to this album that I didn’t expect. But that aside this is another goth metal album with a female vocalist. There is a harder edge to this that kinda sets this apart a bit. It is not as polished as some of this sort of metal can be. And with bands like Epica and Lacuna Coil and Edenbridge it is nice to hear something a bit tougher. FALLEN ARISE has with “Ethereal” made an album that surprised me positively. Anders Ekdahl
