If you love female fronted metal and have been waiting for a new album by Maitri’s “Lover of Sin “ project then wait no more. Horny Beast is here!

Lover of Sin’s Horny Beast is an incredible album that will satisfy any Female Fronted fans appetite… Here’s a brief rundown of a few of the songs

“The Spell is Broken” Features George Kollia (Nile) on drums. George’s drumming is as powerful as ever as he lays down a beat that will make you want to bang your head against a wall. The guitar riffs are tight, yet typical heavy metal with a very strong melody that falls somewhere between melodic death metal and gothic metal.

“Liquid Fire” starts off with a slower somewhat plodding riff, but not so slow that it isn’t boring. The song has a nice groove to it and Maitri’s vocals on this song really shine. I feel this song fits somewhere between and 80’s style of metal and a more modern melodic metal sound . Overall a fun song to listen to.

Lover of Sins cover of The Kinks “You Really Got Me”. Is an incredible cover. Maitri and the band have taken this song and made it their own (which is something a band should do with a cover), while still staying true to the original. This version takes the song and puts it from a woman’s perspective. I found it very enjoyable.

While this album features elements of Black, Death and Goth Metal Maitri doesn’t sound like she swallowed a box of thumb tacks. She can flat out sing.

I’ll be honest I didn’t know what to think when I received this album… Over all I am extremely impressed with the composition of this album and would recommend this album to anyone who likes Death Metal, Black Metal or Goth.

Horny Beast to listen to but the meek should be warned the album does have some very sexual overtones.

Would I purchase this album… HELL YES!!!!
