    There is no shortage of metal-related bands that offer a "Beauty and the Beast" approach when it comes to juxtaposing female vocals and male vocals. "Beauty" is often a female lead singer with an ethereal, decidedly goth vocal style, while "The Beast" might favor either death metal's Cookie Monster growl or black metal's sinister rasp. But Eyes Set to Kill put a different spin on the "Beauty and the Beast" school of metal on THE WORLD OUTSIDE. The clean lead vocals of Alexia Rodriguez are contrasted with the "Beast" vocals of keyboardist Brandon Anderson, who offers neither a death metal growl nor a black metal rasp but, instead, abrasive screaming of the metalcore/hardcore/screamo variety. Eyes Set to Kill are refreshingly original; their sound combines alternative metal, screamo and metalcore elements with a strong appreciation of the goth-influenced Evanescence. Rodriguez has obviously been affected by Evanescence leader Amy Lee's poetic angst and melancholy introspection, although some of Rodriguez' vocal phrasing sounds a bit like Gwen Stefani. The pop-rock qualities in Rodriguez' singing might have been a problem if Eyes Set to Kill were only interested in ultra-vicious sensory assault, but Rodriguez and her Phoenix-based colleagues were obviously going for something much more nuanced--and they do a good job of balancing the aggressive and the melodic.

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (p.126) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "'The Hollow Pt. 1' is an astonishingly sophisticated baroque breather before its dynamic, all-rock sequel kicks in."
