4 stars DAY SIX are a young Prog-Metal band from the Netherlands.Their music contains a lot of tempo shifts and synths, which really add to the atmosphere of their songs.The singer is very good as are all the musicians.

The album opens with "Legend Of The Hollow" and right away we have the lead guitar and the synths trading off solos.There is a galloping melody that comes and goes in the IRON MAIDEN style.The synths really do add to the atmosphere of this tune and I love the sound of the guitar with it's lower tone. "The Law Of The Web" features some good riffs and synths and the vocals are supported with a female choir that sounds amazing. The guitar melody has an almost Arabic feel to it.The song ends with vocals and piano.

"Dark Tower" is a slower, dark song with synths and some great bass work. "No-One Lives Forever" is good , with an amazing guitar melody about 3 1/2 minutes in. Some vocal sampling as well. "Water & Stones" opens with acoustic guitar, synths and vocals, that are again supported with the choir. Some good piano as well. "Day VI" opens with a monologue and the galloping melody again (it's great) .This has such a thumping beat to it. "The Crypt" is the longest song on the record. A slower paced tune that gets aggressive during the chorus. Heavy riffs are contrasted with a guitar melody, light drums and gentle vocals. This song is all over the place (mood shifts and tempo changes). This is a great song.

This is a very promising young band whose debut is excellent, and highly recommended.
