Like leaves that fall between two trees grown together in the majestic beauty that is the chance and fate of nature, Kowai's Dissonance covers the listener in poetic sorrow and somber symphonic metal melodies. Lush keyboards, calming guitars, and vocals with lyrics that plead for escape, Kowai's debut offers a wintry embrace that warms the shivering soul with a cathartic sense of pride.

Beautiful and catchy album, surprised it didn't make the awards. Man there was some crappy stuff there.

Huh, you know I did see the symphonic category so I guess blindness = confirmed. Symphonic category is better than Gothic I must say, in terms of quality.

Good music but its female vocal is kind of dissonance , she doesn't fit into the music in most parts. i'm not sure but maybe the problem is because of mix and mastering.

Why was this album left out of the Debut of the Year category? I understand it's hard to filter down to 8 or 10 albums, but this was a pretty epic debut.
