4 stars This is the second album from the Australian progressive metal band, but the first since they signed to Limb Music and consequently the first to be easily available in Europe. Having already kicked up a storm with a dynamic performance at Wacken, the German press in particular have been eagerly awaiting this album, and it is easy to see why.

This six-piece just oozes confidence, and puts hard rock melodies and styles against more progressive and melodic ideas that crafts a sound that will be enjoyed by anyone who thinks that Stratovarius are the high point of this genre. They are not afraid to bring in ideas just for a few bars to make a difference to a song, yet never moving away from their hard rock roots.

Vanishing Point certainly sound more European than any other Aussie outfit I have heard, and are in a class far removed from Skyhooks or Rose Tattoo. Superb
