Flyleaf profile

From looking at her, who would have ever thought that a girl the size of Lacey Mosley could bellow such a horrifying scream? Upon listening to ‘I’m So Sick’ you’ll realise a little bit more about Flyleaf‘s musical presentation, and a Christian alternative metal band with a screaming female lead vocalist isn’t something you find very often in mainstream music today.

‘I’m So Sick’ has varying moments of sheer aggression which is nicely levelled out with layers of harmonising vocal work too. The deep bass intro from Pat Seals along with Lacey‘s angel-like vocal opening is a haunting one at the least, with a similar effect with the closing moments. In-between we get an aggressive and catchy piece of work, which will make you want to listen again, again and again.
