Destruction - Passion's Price (Independent)
Review by Sparrow
a list of accomplishments and honours that would
make a signed artist go green with envy, Diva
Destruction appear to be ready to take on the
world of conventional musical themes. Female
vocals with fast classical styled music in the
background make Debra Fogarty and company a
#1for several months on the Goth section within www.mp3.com,
their hit single "The Broken Ones" featured on Cleopatra's
Unquiet Grave 2000 CD, and being personally picked

Plus, adding in additional female background vocals
courtesy of Severina Sol makes things flow that much

between a slow ballad to a fast paced dance number
and you have a combination that stands out amidst
the throng of darker bands out there.

you would leave for your lover on your way out the
door (aka a Dear John). Though, I see Diva's debut
as an almost exploration of the darker love that most
of those in the Goth scene have experienced at one
time or another. They traverse all of the typical
themes...betrayal, being a slave to your emotions,
and a bit of fetish kink to boot.

Diva Destruction spreads that passion worldwide.
