a long line of great new progressive metal bands from Sweden comes
Seventh Wonder with their sophomore album "Waiting in the
Wings". Their debut album "Become" from last year
was a fine piece of progressive metal, but I hadn't expected
something like this...
album surpasses my expectations beyond my wildest dreams,
everything is at least one or two levels bigger and better than
its predecessor. The songs are all at a very high technical level,
the musicianship is outstanding and this is a very mature release.
Seventh Wonder has in my humble opinion created a small
masterpiece in progressive metal...
big leap forward is mostly down to Tommy and Tommy! New vocalist
Tommy Karevik delivers in my book the most impressive vocal
performance I've heard from a new guy since the first time I heard
his fellow countryman Nils Patrik Johansson for the first time!
He fit's the music perfectly and have an outstanding range. Tommy
# 2 is off course Danish tech-wiz Tommy Hansen, who once more has
created magic. Another
brilliant mix from him, but the basics produced by Daniel Flores
and the band has to be mentioned as well...
mention them in the vein of genre giants like Dream Theater and
Symphony X is still an overstatement, but they are clearly going
places with this excellent album, and I am sure we'll hear a lot
from them in the years to come...
Wonder has convinced me big time with this brilliant progressive metal
release, which I am sure, will create quite a stir when it's
release - don't miss out on one of the best progressive albums of
Buy the album!
