their music as Neoclassic Progressive Metal, quite what this band would
sound like I wasn't entirely sure. By the time I was half way through
listening to the first track I soon got the picture.
It's big production songs with tales of epic journeys and which focus
more towards the actual musical side of the songs than the vocals
themselves. While the words paint an outline of what the nature of songs
are all about, it is the music behind the words that help create this
sonic symphony. This is the sort of music that you can relax to and sit
back and let it wash through your body as it bombards you with its
explosion on the senses.
If you like this type of rock then you'll thoroughly enjoy this album as
it's very good at what it's set out to accomplish. Hardly surprising
perhaps when you take a look at the pedigree of artists it has
performing on this album. On vocals we have John West from the band
Royal Hunt. The wizard behind the keyboards is non other than Ring of
Fire's very own Vitalij Kuprij. The things that man can do with a
keyboard are really quite astounding. He really knows how to put the
'pro' into progressive rock. On bass we have Kevin Chown (Magnitude 9
& Tiles) and lastly on drums we have Mike Terrana (Rage, Axel Rudi
The songs seem to go on forever, but if this is how you get your kicks
then I'm sure you'll enjoy this album.
