Noisy Toyz are a symphonic Rock band from Hampshire UK and was formed in 2008 by composer/guitarist  Mars Marshall. After mixing metal guitars with industrial sounds with the albums "Toybox" and "Playing with my Mind", Noisy Toyz added symphonic orchestral parts and female lead vocals to  their third album "The Fate of Dreams" which has risen with great acclaim and said of being reminiscent of Epica, Leaves Eyes and Sirenia but with their own sound and style. They released the singles "Fallen angel" and "Immortal Life" from the album.

The new album "Forever One" features soprano Lisa Axworthy who is currently  performing  in various Gilbert and Sullivan opera shows in between singing with Noisy Toyz. The new album features the singles "Trail of Tears" and "April Rain" and other great songs along with dynamic orchestrations and rocking guitars.

Noisy Toyz "Forever One" album Reviews

"First and foremost, can we just take a moment to appreciate "The Phantom of the Opera" esque artwork? I think it fits nicely with the lyrical themes running throughout the album.

Speaking of the album, it was truly a pleasure to listen to. The opening track "Avalon" stuck out to me the most for I felt as though it was like I was listening to a musical. "In Paradise" will have you humming the song long after you are done listening to the album. The title track "Forever One" has a very Within Temptation feel to the song what with Lisa presenting the listener with her higher notes. "Trail of Tears" is one of my favourites on the album as I find it's one of the more darker songs and it's very reminiscent to the sound of Leaves' Eyes.

All in all, I was very impressed with the quality of the album as a whole and I look forward to hearing more from the band in the future. If you are familiar with symphonic metal, don't hesitate to give these guys a listen. You won't be disappointed!"

"Theatrical and atmospheric, 'Forever One' is packed full of classic gothic aesthetics and romance. Opening with 'Avalon', listeners are thrown straight into a soundscape of ominous and ghostly instrumentals before Lisa's clear vocals cut in over the top. They've retained a lot of their metal influences, layering heavy guitar and drum tracks under the orchestral sounds. This is power ballads as they should be done.

Second track, 'In Paradise', is more lively, opening with upbeat strings (yep, that's the first time I've ever said that before), and Lisa's voice is blended with male vocals that bring back the band's metal influences. Contrasting with Lisa's pure, innocent sound, the effect is more than a little creepy. 'Trail of Tears' exposes the true beauty of Lisa's voice with her vocals almost a cappella at times, over an instrumental that's been stripped right back to mere suggestion.

The whole album sways back and forth between accents of different alternative styles, pulling them together to create a truly gothic whole. It's an album to play at midnight, a lullaby for the darkest of dreamers, a requiem for broken hearts. Powerful and passionate, 'Memories' is the stand-out track for me, which has enjoyed selection for airtime on Rockin Doc Radio. 'Path of Eternity' brings even more momentum to the album, before pulling right back with the haunting melody of 'Broken Dreams'. 'Forever One' is a beautifully emotive album, full of romance and heartbreak, and if you're looking for the epitome of gothic music, you won't be too far off the mark with this
