Melodic Metal outfit CLOUDSCAPE is
back with the successor to their self-titled debut album and it’s
called “Crimson Skies”.
debut album received good reviews from around the world and
it gave them an opportunity to play at “Progpower Europe” in
which was CLOUDSCAPE’S first
gig outside of Sweden. “Crimson
Skies” was recorded at Roastinghouse Studios and was produced
by Pontus Lindmark. Executive producer was Anders “Theo” Theander. The
cover artwork is once again done by Mattias Noren.
music here on this release is in exactly the same vein as their debut
album so nothing has changed. I
had the same small problem with this new album as I had with their debut…
I was a little disappointed at first, but after numerous listens it
opens up. Still I could wish for more memorable choruses but the musicianship
is top notch.
you find their debut album stunning I’m sure that you will be pleased with
“Crimson Skies” too. Just
give it the time it needs to open up. CLOUDSCAPE
about Melodic Metal with a Progressive edge and there
is a very good atmosphere on “Crimson Skies”.
favourite tracks are “Shadowland”, “Take the Blame”, “Psychic
“Will we Remain” and I find this new release a tad better than their
of you out there should listen before you buy, but fans of CLOUDSCAPE
tracks: See above.
