album is actually quite easy to summarize: good songs, a good vocalist,
good melodies and a decent production make this a good debut album!
There you have it; it's as simple as that!
5 Swedish brothers in metal plays melodic power metal with a few
ventures into progressive metal territory, drawing comparisons with
mostly German bands like Edguy, Masterplan and old Helloween. 41 minutes
of music is on offer here, and all nine songs reach a good level, with
the 3 listed below being the strongest ones in my book. I like the
aggressive approach of those 3 songs, where they let some of their death
metal background shine through.
But what makes this album less appealing than a new Edguy album? Well this is a fine collection of songs, with some at times simple and uninspired drumming, no real memorable choruses, and a good vocalist - not outstanding, an OK production and so on...
delivers a strong debut album, which I think is a good foundation for
this up and coming band, do check them out...
tracks: "When Dream and Fate Collide", "Facing
Destiny" and "Dimension for the Week".
