5 stars Well Evergrey are back... what's left of them... And it is a magnificent comeback!

We all knew their problems after "Torn". And the question was how Tom and Rikard could continue with this. But let's face it, Tom is the heart of this band. And maybe since the departure of the other three members there was more space for Zander's keys. So with a new rhythm section they are releasing Glorious Collision.

I must confess, although their first albums till The Inner Circle are more of what we use to say Prog, I always liked Torn. There was a certain familiar to me mood there. So is the new one better? Equal to the old ones? I will not do the comparison. They don't deserve this, not at all. Honestly, I think that the new one is a great album, great melodies, great orchestrations, GREAT solos, with their style that we love.

The keys are more in the front, spreading their sound, giving new dimensions. The lyrics speak to you, it goes really deep sometimes. Tom' s voice just shouts "I am back". And the new players are up to the task, powerful drumming, nice bass lines and heavy riffing.

This is an awesome album, an emotional trip and heavy as always. Five stars, cause this is a great effort and cause we need bands like Evergrey, keep it going!

Sophocles | 5/5 |
