4 stars The sophmore album from Evergrey Solitude + Dominance + Tragedy was a major improvement from their debut the Dark Discovery. The style has not changed though. Itīs still American inspired Power/Prog metal dominated by Tom S. Englundīs love him or hate him vocals. A band I think about when listening to this album is Nevermore. Evergrey has the same heavy guitar style, they play brilliantly, and their music is more heavy metal than prog metal, but the leanings are there.

The song material has gotten much better than on the debut and there are many really strong songs on this album. Some examples of killer songs are: Solitude Within, Nosferatu, The Shocking Truth, She Speaks To The Dead and The Corey Curse. There are a few songs I donīt find as exciting as others ( Words Mean Nothing) but most songs are good. Fans of prog metal could find this exciting even though it mostly is a heavy metal album with keyboards incorporated.

The sound quality is really nice and powerful which is another great improvement from the debut. The lyrics are dark and image laden.

My final evaluation of this album, is that this is excellent metal with prog leanings well deserving the 4 stars I will give it.

UMUR | 4/5 |
