Suicide by My Side is a very hit or miss album, but the hits are so strong that I still listen to this even fifteen years after first hearing it. It's concise and punchy, and while it doesn't always make its point effectively, when it is effective, it's just as strong as anything else to be found in the genre. The Kimberly Goss-led troupe, Sinergy, return with their third full-length album, "Suicide By My Side. And where do I begin describing its greatness? Firstly, Kimberly Goss sounds incredible. While her vocals on the band's first album, "Beware the Heavens," sounded too pretty and too gothic, here they're much more memorable. The fanzine writer turned keyboardist turned singer is really coming into her own as a vocalist. On "Suicide By My Side," Goss's vocals are angrier and more metal-sounding than ever before
Suicide By My Side is the third and final album by the power metal band Sinergy, released in 2002. It shows a substantial progress in their musical style; singer Kimberly Goss performs in a sharper, more aggressive vocal style, and guitarists Alexi Laiho and Roope Latvala perform more technical solos. Goss has noted that while the title (and the title track lyrics) are to an extent autobiographical, unlike she states in the music video, she has never attempted suicide.
When first looking at Sinergy's Suicide by My Side, one would probably expect a bleak and gloomy exercise in minimalist hardcore metal. But no, Sinergy isn't going to suddenly change its sound, and this slab of power metal could be a potential shocker to depressed teenagers unfamiliar with the band. The album is most definitely aimed at potential suicide victims, a tactic that may be the first of its kind.
