She's BACK!!! And with the same Metal 🔥 as in her Glory days

Vuur is such an 😉 name for Anneke Van Giersbergen's new Progressive Metal project; after all, ☝️ of the best loved singer/songwriters in all The 🇳🇱 knew she still wanted to make Beautiful & Heavy Rock 🎶, and this new band is exactly what she needed
Their aptly titled first album "In this Moment We are Free-Cities" is a collection of songs that tell stories about some of the most important & tragic events in 🌎 history, and at the same time reveals the hope that ironically came after them
The first 2 singles, "My Champion-Berlin" & "Days go By-London" are 😉 examples of what this album represents both in the lyrics & the Heaviness of the 🎶; even the 🎸 solos reveal both the 😔 of these true tales & the optimism that ultimately comes in its wake
Excellent work Anneke

I love Anneke but...

this is just bland. Anneke needs to experiment with her vocals and branch out a little. It feels like she's stayed in a certain comfort zone vocal-wise. I wish in my heart she would go back to The Gathering but seeing as how that's never going to happen, I wish she would find a project and stick with it and branch out and experiment. She has the talent.
