Produced by Eric Clayton (Saviour Machine), this should give some idea as to the type of project this is. In a similar vein as Saviour Machine in mood, Wedding Party is one of a few in a recent spate of gothic influenced rock/metal artists to appear on the scene. Featuring William Walters (vocals/guitars), Sheri Luckey Walters (vocals), Jamie McCavanagh (guitars/piano), Kenneth Paul Lemery (keys), Chad Hall (piano/percussion) and Viccor Deacon (drums/percussion), 'Anthems' is a dark, brooding and atmospheric album bristling with fine compositional ideas; adequately executed by the band. Vocally intriguing, the blend of male/female lead work adds a dynamic element to the work as a whole. Overall a fine example of a genre which has sadly been over looked by CCM, until now.
