’Higher’ is the title of the second album from the Swedish band ReinXeed formed by and
around bandleader Tommy Johansson. I’m not familiar with their debut album, ‘The Light’
but let’s take a quick look at ‘Higher’, shall we?
‘Higher’ really reminds me of a symphonic and bombastic version of early Sonata Arctica and the 10 songs are packed with catchy choruses and catchy riffs. But it feels like you’ve heard everything before. Every chorus, every note.
Then we have the production... it's okay but could have been heavier and more powerful in my
Well... there’s talent here. No doubt. So if you can live with an album you feel like you’ve heard
before and you’re in the mood for catchy symphonic melodic power metal, then you will find
‘Higher’ very enjoyable.
ReinXeed are already looking forward for the 3rd album and I’m sure that it could be a real winner.
