3 stars Redemption returns with their fifth studio album.

This band has it's origins as a home for ex Symphony X and Fates Warning members. Listening to this album, the Fates Warning link is pretty obvious. Them and some pretty strong Dream Theater connotations. The result is an all out assault of power, or prog metal as it is listed as in ProgArchives.

The vocals are OK. The instrumentations is rhythm guitars with guitars and keyboards as solo instruments. Mostly guitars, though. The vocals also drives the melodies here.

The result is a good power metal album. Not the most interesting album I have ever heard. Then again, power/prog metal is not on my list of genres I prefer listening to. But I find nothing offensive on this album and nothing great either. This is a pretty standard prog/power metal album which will probably get this band new fans.
