The lyrics written by vocalist Marcela Bovio bring out her emotions and her thoughts about her change of life style and environment from her native Mexico to her new life in Holland. Musically and lyrically the album present us with various latin influences, an example of this are the lyrics of songs like “Our Cause”, “Darker Days”, and “Nadie Love”.
The album is not an innovation in gothic metal, but presents a different approach to it by including a spicy latin sound, that in its own measure gives a twist to the band’s sound. with this album Stream Of Passion shows a more mature band, and a more solid sound that shows why they are one of the more important bands in the gothic metal scene today.
