From Italy, Where Orchids Goes to Die create eerie, exotic music. From Mariana’s accented English vocals to Mebitek’s mechanical effects, this duo are on to something unique. However, the uneven sound mix often undercuts the artists’ efforts. “The Spell” opens with sad cellos whose lurching undertones get you to thinking about damp, creepy crypts and catacombs. A lighter atmosphere pervades “Event Horizon” and continues the duo’s theatrical, mechanics-heavy style. The lead vocal on “En-trance” has a strange, smeary vibe that’s cool, but it’s poorly mixed. We suggest re-recording the vocals or perhaps the duo might consider going entirely instrumental?
