Melissa – Melissa (2021)

Melissa have been getting a lot of hype recently, and I do wonder how much of that is because of the striking appearance of vocalist Jane Pain who is an outspoken and absolutely fascinating character in all of herself. Anyway, this EP is awesome, so the hype is deserved. It’s as much rock and roll as it is black metal, but wholly unique too, which is super refreshing. I guess this falls squarely into the RABM movement, with the content being handled in the songs. Savage vocals, though. The next release from Melissa is gonna be one to watch, I think.
