‘The Alpha Memory’ Review by Ravenheart Webzine: (9.5/10)

- This is flippin' good. 'Under The Surface' is the first track proper and delivers a WOW FACTOR of 10!
- Other totally magical and bombastic tracks include everything that is on this record to be honest!
- The vocals of Elisa are so angelic at times, and the remainder of the band deserves an Oscar.
- The key to a good record is if times flies by while you are listening to it, then it is orgasmatronically good - this is orgasmatronically good!... - Raveheart Webzine (Oct. 24, 2014)

“Beyond the Sea takes things to whole new level for this young band. The pounding drums lead into the rumbling guitar of the opener, “Run to You”. Lead vocalist Roslen is quite impressive as she alternates between a clean metal voice and an operatic style. Musically, Tothem is very much a guitar driven band. “Smile Again” is next and starts off with a serene piano intro and leads into some more heavy riffing. This song has a chorus that is undeniably catchy as hell. This would be a great choice for the next single, in my opinion. The overall production on “Beyond the Sea” is so sharp and crisp. The songs are definitely well written and Roslen has the right mixture between operatic and a more melodic style – she never overdoes it and is a huge asset for Tothem. “This is the Time” is another fantastic song and a pure highlight. “Light of Soul” is a stirring ballad and packed with plenty of emotion. “Rescue”, “Beyond the Sea” and “The Witch” maintains a high level on the CD and the closing number “Where Angels Lie” is a good way to end things. “Beyond the Sea” maintains its consistency throughout the 49-minutes worth of playing time." - Tony Cannella (Femme Metal Webzine)

"In perfect unison ravishing Roslen can change her vocal style without blinking, from Amy Lee alternative, to Sharon Den Adel semi operatic, to Tarja soprano, to all points between, from innocent child to grand opera dame. The songs sail from light reflection to rocking up a storm to operatic grandeur, making for an absorbing listening experience. They don't mess about with an intro, but launch into the raging riffage of opener 'Run to You', they then assail you with the more lilting lyrical but still powerful numbers 'Smile Again', and 'Still', big power ballads 'Light of Soul' and 'So Close So Far Away', songs that are a touch more 'folky' 'This is the Time' and lead single 'The Witch', mini epics that run the gamut 'Fight With You' and title song 'Beyond the Sea', and the catchy rocking 'Cross The Line', probably my favourite tune. The eastern flavoured track 'Where the Angels Lie' closes out the opus. The sound is good and well produced but a bit guitar heavy which stops it from becoming fully symphonic. Tothem have set sail with a terrific well crafted album that is sure to find an anchorage in the harbours of all discerning metal fans." - Ravenheart Webzine

‘Beyond the Sea’ was produced by the band in the summer of 2012 at MM Studio in Rome, and mastered by Creative Mastering in Forli, Italy.

Digipak artwork was beautifully designed by Adhiira Art in Rome.
