Lycanthia  


Lycanthia formed in 1996 and self-released their first album, Myriad, in 1999. Myriad is an ambitious, moody, gothic/doom effort that sometimes hits the mark but other times is a bit lacking. The singing, provided by a trio of members, is a weak spot -- Natalie Crawford's vocals are thin and lack strength, and drummer Lachlan Donaldson's clean, semi-operatic tone sounds forced, though Lee Tassaker's sparse death growls are effective. Musically, there is a variety of moods and shades at work, again showing hints of greatness but too often coming across as a bit underdeveloped. Since Myriad the band has gone a near-complete lineup overhaul, with only Tassaker remaining from the album that recorded the album, and finally in 2006 a new EP, Within The Walls, was released.
