Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
The latest in a run of monumental and ambitious symphonic rock colossus, ‘Requiem’ sees Koburg at her most majestic, the Queen of UK Symphonic Rock.
From the opening violins to the crushing weight of the guitar, everything is perfectly brought in layer upon layer, the whole somehow managing to balance delicacy and sledgehammer punch in glorious delirium.
With a voice that can seduce and eviscerate in the same moment, Koburg brings a Siren-like presence to the recording, worthy of both utter devotion and fear, her sweet but strong tone demanding your full attention.
Turn it up as loud as you can, immerse yourself in the sound and surrender to something that will touch your soul and make your heart burst. Magnificent.
