3 stars Beyond the Labyrinth is one of the lesser known prog metal acts coming from Belgium. They released 3 albums since now that gone under the rader in prog circles. I reviewed the debut some years ago and I like what I've hered there so I decided to check the follow up. The follow up is named Castles in the send and was issued in 2008. Well, despitting some well executed instrumental parts , the overall album is usual stuff , at least for me, plus that the voice of Jo De Boeck doesn't add nothing new under the horizon in the overall sound. There are some great guitar chops and good keybords interluded, but is lacking in something to really grab this album a lot The forte pieces are Beyond The Labyrinth and the beautiful For Eternity with excellent keyboards. All in all decent , nothing more, and I think Castles in the sand is little less intresting then the debut. I should check their third one from 2011 to see how they manageing to evolve. 3 stars for me, ok but far from excellent.
