Maltese Vocal Artist INDIGO DARKPSYCH has released the 3rd ‘Indigo Darkpsych’ Album by Ravenheart Music. The new Album entitled ALL THAT REMAINS is a series of 10 thrilling tracks with a mix of styles fused with some steady & intriguing, heavy riffs. The main vibe is Industrial/Alternative but rapcore, dubstep, trash&electro and some other various rhythmic styles, are also used respectively and there is no chance of getting bored or laying back at any point in time.
Maria Victoria Lewis is the backbone and founder of this Act being an amazingly versatile singer-songwriter and together with the genial All Metal guitarist&engineer David Depasquale, this full-length record has been bred and delivered with agility and a lot of groove.
The 1st single by the name of ‘Shining Inside’ is being released on various Airwaves this month while the physical Dijipack is made available on 2 web-stores so far, that of the Label (www.ravenheartmusic.com/our_store.html) and the worldwide CdBaby.com (www.cdbaby.com/cd/indigodarkpsych3).
One must say that with this release Lewis and Depasquale are to kick start a new venture and therefore continue to live up to the evolutionary path that Indigo has embarked on since the year 2002. The young Vocalist believes that this is simply the 1st step towards a successful exportation of this unique music project and she will never stop looking and moving forward,be creative and innovative, and keep striving to formulate a new sounding sub-genre.

Indigo DarkPsych is fronted by Marvic ‘Indigo’ Lewis. Originally known as Indigo, in November 2003 Marvic released her first single ‘Washed Away’ on radio, and in July 2004 released ‘Struck’. They both turned out to be hits, and in fact she was nominated as a best solo artist in the Bay Music Awards 2004. This inspired her as Indigo to continue writing and developing that same style, until she concluded a whole album under the name of ‘STRUCK’. That album being an awesome slab of Alternative Hard Rock with subtle touches of Electronica, and stacks of melody. Her second release ‘These Are The Roots’ is a heavier, more metallic sound, but maintaining the melodic sensibility that was so apparent in her debut release. Marvic co-wrote and co produced the 2nd album and was responsible for the album artwork.

Indigo Darkpsych “Struck EP” (2012)
by Dylan Raine
Struck – On first glances you immediately get that feeling of something almost out of the ordinary. Combined with an almost ‘dance’ like industrial special effects and raunchy guitar riffs, this track takes you on an ever elusive journey into the minds of industrial based metal and keeps you there.
Thanks - The overall basis of this song opens up the listener to another view on life in an almost Kate Bush style. The lead vocals provide both gentle and powerful combinations to give you not only beauty, but simplicity throughout the song. The passions in the vocal lines are enough to keep you listening, waiting in anticipation for the next progression.
I don’t care – From what starts off as a gentle paced song, you are led into a false sense of security just as the strength of the vocals come out in full force. The vocal lines control this entire track with passion holding you deep within the music, putting you almost on the edge of your seats. It is not often you get melody, power, great progressions, beautiful use of strings (orchestral) and passion all combined within the same song.
Overall, for uplifting music and an artist to keep you hooked throughout, this band has so many great features going for them. Indigo Darkpsych would be ideal for not only diehard fans of female fronted melodic metal/industrial such as Evanescence, Lacuna Coil etc… It is also for those with an interest in heavy rock and ballad based music. The quality of the recordings is at very high standards as is almost expected with music software on the increase, as are the progressions in the instruments, vocals, and melodies. Keep an eye (and possibly your mind) open for Indigo Darkpsych, as I too am certainly looking forward to more releases in the future.
Final score 7.5/10
