3 stars This third CD from progressive metal band SAVIOUR MACHINE is a big step from their previous album "Saviour Machine II" from 1994. The music is like a soundtrack to a rock opera about the bible, and the songs are much better on this one.

Another great thing about this release is the CD case. It's all black with the band name, the title of the album and the songs printed in red and silver direct on the plastic. Inside it there's a 16-page booklet complete with all of the lyrics. It's great to have the lyrics available on a concept album like this. It makes it much easier to understand the story of the album.

The singer Eric Clayton is the main man behind the most things on this CD. His vocals are sometimes reminiscent to David BOWIE. The keyboard player Nathan Van Hala is also in the forefront of it all, always present with his piano and keyboards. Very much of what he's playing is done on the piano. A good decision in my opinion.

This is definitely the album to start with if you want to get into SAVIOUR MACHINE. If you liked the previous work of SAVIOUR MACHINE I'm sure that you can't resist this one.
