Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars "Upon Deaf Ears" is the debut full-length studio album by US progressive/power metal act Mercury Rising. The album was originally released through Dominion Records in 1994, but itīs probably the 1997 Noise Records re-release thatīs most readily available.

The band play a guitar/vocal driven progressive/US power metal with only limited use of keyboards. Acts like early Queensrĸche, Fates Warning, Lethal and Heir Apparent are valid references but Mercury Rising often cross into harder edged power/thrash territory too and Iīm reminded of acts like Sanctuary and Mystic Force when that happens. The latter style is best heard in the powerful power thrashy track "Halfway to Forever" while the more progressive side of the bandīs music is heard in tracks like the opener "Upon Deaf Ears", "Light to Grow" and especially in closing 9:15 minutes long "Where Fear Ends".

The band are very well playing but if I have to mention a slight issue it would be that lead vocalist Clarence Osborne occasionally lacks a bit of power. Itīs actually a bit odd because other times he sounds great. The sometimes unremarkable vocal lines/melodies probably also have something to do with this and the vocal production could be another issue. Most of the time the vocals sound great though. As touched upon the sound production features a couple of minor issues but all in all the sound suits the music well and overall I appreciate the production.

Iīm not sure how much success "Upon Deaf Ears" earned Mercury Rising, but my guess is not much. Had it been released just 5 years earlier things would have looked different for the band. In 1994 most progressive metal acts had included a keyboard player in the lineup as that was the big thing at that time and compared to that, Mercury Rising sound a bit old fashioned. Personally they play exactly the type of progressive metal that I enjoy the most so Iīm thrilled there are few keyboards on the album and overall "Upon Deaf Ears" is a quality release. A 3.5 - 4 start (75%) rating is deserved.
