Before putting this disc into my much tested
CD-player, Liquid Horizon was a big unknown to me. But 'Revolutions'
is a nice surprise and an album worthy of your attention if you are
into European progressive metal.
Liquid Horizon will never break any
boundaries or stand out as new revolutionaries on the progressive
metal front, but they represent their trade well and do their work
well. Solid craftsmanship, solid song writing and a good production
are important parts of 'Revolutions', their fourth release; second
full length album.
'Revolutions' is a concept album that deals with
different revolutions and the fight for freedom through history.
Centrepiece of the album is a 21 minutes trilogy about the French
Revolution. And with this song they really reach their potential and
show what abilities that lies within Liquid Horizon, and this
trilogy alone makes this album worth checking out...
The rest doesn't quite reach the same level, and a
few songs do drift off into mediocrity, but the potential is there
and they are clearly capable of writing strong songs and are on the
right track with this album.
