Entries from Finger Eleven , Submersed , and 12 Stones don't fare much better. They vary in their use of trademark elements like chunky distortion, pleading choruses, or acoustic breakdowns.
But the collective effect is to hear one long, loud, and rather unimaginative song. Elsewhere, Switchfoot and Taking Back Sunday get lost in layers of moody drama and echoing piano, with the latter's "Your Own Disaster" a close cousin to its placeholder entry on 's Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. Evanescence 's Amy Lee has proven her ability to carry a piano ballad, and the previously unreleased "Breathe No More" is no exception. It softens Elektra a little, like a white curtain billowing in a cold stone room.
However, with only a faceless hard rock grind from Alter Bridge and two different hopefuls Megan McCauley, Full Blown Rose trying to channel that Evanescence mix of passion and rock power, Elektra: The Album never really makes its point.
James Jou Looking to make sense of the crazy world of comic speculation through analysis. Best Investment: Will find out in 10 years. Distracted by this knowledge, Elektra is attacked by Typhoid, who gives her the poisonous Kiss of Death. Abby attempts to intervene, but is stopped by Kirigi. At this point Stick and his pupils intervene, rescuing Abby, Mark and Elektra from the Hand warriors. They all return to Stick's training camp. Here Stick confirms that Abby is the 'Treasure', a martial arts prodigy whom the Hand want for their own purposes.
He tells Elektra, who has been cured of Typhoid's attack, that Abby must remain under his protection as long as Kirigi is alive. She also realizes it was Stick who originally hired her to kill Mark and Abby, apparently as a psychological trick. She questions whether everything that has happened since Stick had expelled her from the camp has been a test, to which Stick merely replies that some lessons have to be lived to be understood.
Abby tells Elektra she doesn't want to have to stay in the camp forever. In an effort to let Abby lead a normal life, Elektra makes a deal with Kirigi: a fight between the two which will decide Abby's fate. If Elektra is defeated, Abby is given to Kirigi. If Kirigi is defeated, then Abby is free forever. Elektra returns to the house where her mother was killed by Kirigi, as she soon discovers , and battles Hand warriors and Kirigi himself.
Klytaemnestra, in contrast to Agamemnon's clearly diatonic minor triad motif, is characterized by a bitonal six note collection most often represented as a pair of two minor chords a tritone apart, typically on B and F, rather than simultaneously.
