Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars The sophomore release from this Finnish based project is very much of a so-so affair overall.

The main style here is generic power metal. Not sounding very much like any artists I remember, but sounding like a record that could just as well have been recorded in 1986 in terms of style and mood.

The musicians try to create an identity here by making songs with slightly odd and quirky patterns and structures; fast-slow-fast drum patterns and/or riff patterns, a high degree of variation in pace in each individual songs, and even some asynchron rhythm/guitar patterns.

It's skillfully done, but doesn't make the songs any better. Okayish power metal is the end result; fans of the genre - especially those that enjoys technically skillful playing - are the ones that will get the most pleasure out of this release.

3 stars Second offer Unfold the future of this discret band conducted by Lars Eric Mattsson released in 2006 at same LionMusic is to me at same level with predecesor, not better, not worst. The attitude is again similr with selftitled album, only the musicians are diffrent with prestation of Martin LeMar on voice from german prog metal band Tomorrow's Eve, Anand Mahangoe on guitar from dutch prog metal band Sphere of Souls, and the drumer and main composer Matsson are the same as on first album. Again over ok, but nothing really special arrangements, neo classical power metal with progressive metal elements makes from this second offer to be only intresting by prog metal fans and I doubt it that all will like it big time. Th parts are from fast to slow with guitars working all the time but aswell the keybords have a good role here. To me Mattsson is an under rated guitarist who knows to handle the guitar very well here he has some very fine solos and arrangements, what lacks mainly is the intresting catchy parts overall as on other bands. Bringer of the Torch or Heal me are the main atraction here, the rest being only ok and nothing more. 3 stars, for fans of power/prog metal only. I'm looking for their newest album Relentless Fighter that will apper somewhere in the may 2012, maybe with that release they will get more exposure.
