Cadaveria is the band fronted by the vocalist of the same name, formed after her acrimonious departure from the excellent Opera IX. With drummer Marcelo Santos (aka Flegius) in tow, she recruited a lineup and to date two albums have been released. Cadaveria's unique vocals assure at least a passing resemblance to her old band, but otherwise this band only sounds somewhat like Opera IX, with the song structures a bit more straightforward and the guitars more dominant that in Opera IX. Though arguably Cadaveria the band don't quite match Opera IX at their peak (then again, nor do the post-Cadaveria Opera IX albums), they are nonetheless excellent and recommended albums.
