Contents 1 Production 2 Reception 3 Music description 4 Track listing 5 Personnel 6 References 7 External Links Production In 2008, symphonic metal act After Forever went on a hiatus, and the band officially disbanded in February of 2009. Lead singer Floor Jansen posted on her website that while After Forever was on hold (and since then disbanded), she would use this opportunity to start writing music with Jorn Viggo Lofstad (Pagan's Mind, Jørn Lande) for a new musical project.[5] On 16 June 2009, Floor announced through her Myspace site that she has started a new metal band, which has put her project with Jorn Viggo from Pagan's Mind (called Sinh) on hold. On 17 October 2009, Floor Jansen announced via myspace that the name of her new band was ReVamp.[6] ReVamp contains former After Forever keyboardist Joost van den Broek and guitarist Waldemar Sorychta of Grip Inc., Voodoocult, and Eyes of Eden fame as songwriters and producers.[7] She soon started looking for members to form her new live band, and asked visitors of her website to send in applications for the parts of drummer, guitarist, bassist and keyboard player.[8] In February 2010, Jansen had signed up for an album deal with Nuclear Blast Records, leading to the release of the self-titled debut album that summer.[9] Reception Infernal Masquerade Webzine calls ReVamp "a very impressive first release [...] Something that we completely expected from Floor Jansen, and we hope this band continues to improve in the future"[10]. The Metal Forge gives ReVamp nine out of ten stars and claims "Floor's new creation has a different kind of vibe [from After Forever] that makes her stand out above the rest, and ReVamp is on a one way train to success, never to go back. [...] [The album] offers Floor's convicting vocals, lots of symphonic passages from the keyboards and crunching guitars and drumming that border extreme melodic metal. It may sound a little generic at time, but no one can doubt the power behind the music."[11] Meanwhile, Lord K Philipson of website Global Domination is in his review of ReVamp's debut extremely critical especially to lead singer Floor Jansen, claiming that "her vocals are flat, she’s not even carrying a pleasant tone.", and that she is "backed up by some piss-poor half-metal with cheap keyboard sounds alongside very tiring song arrangements. It’s like they didn’t even try".[12] Music description Lead singer Floor Jansen noted on the album: "[t]he music is heavier than some of you might expect. Bombastic; but with heavy riffing. Complex and pounding drums mixed with melancholic strings. Crazy synth-sounds mixed with a beautiful choir. A wall of sound, yet transparent and versatile"[13]. Jansen also told fan website in an interview that "opera is still in it, but not as much" (referencing the famed opera-grunt-duality of After Forever)[14] Track listing "Here's My Hell" (feat.
