Eve's debut album "The Unexpected World" was a rather mediocre
release, which made me loose interest in them, so I haven't heard 'Mirror
of Creation', which was released in 2003. So it was almost with a clean
slate I put this album in my CD-player - and this is actually a lot
better than expected!
progressive metal, with nice touches of new era Fates Warning, and a lot
of Swedish influences; Andromeda and Evergrey are the 2 of the bands
that comes to mind when listening to this album.
include the 17 minutes long epic album closer: "The Trials of
Man" where Tomorrow's Eve really shows their full capacity, but
also songs like "Distant Murmurs", "The Eve Suite" -
another epic lasting 9 minutes. A nice touch is the inclusion of Jenny
Klos on "Not from this World"; her voice brings a nice
contrast to Martin LeMar, who by the way does a very good job on this
album - take a listen to the "Eye for an Eye" - where his
voice is damn close to Tom Englund's (Evergrey).
I have to compliment the cover artwork -
stunning work done by C.A. Beckston.
very nice surprise from these 5 Germans, do check this good album out if
you like me to like your music hard, heavy and progressive...
