Review by erik neuteboom
3 stars Day Six is rooted in the early Nineties when schoolfriends Dolf en Robbie (at about 11 years old) founded their first band named King Of Darkness. But it became really serious in '97 when the two friends formed Peanuts. In 2002 they changed their name into Day Six, in the same year the band includes Daan Liebregts on drums, Dolf van Heugten on synthesizers, Nick Verstappen on bass and Robbie van Stiphout on guitars and vocals. In 2002 Day Six released the mini-CD "World beyond earth", this was a re-release from CD "The law of the web" by Peanuts. The following year the band released the CD "Eternal dignity". This album sounds mature and dynamic with powerful vocals, strong and fiery guitarplay, inventive keyboardwork and a tight rhythm-section. The seven compositions deliver music that is described by the band as 'symphonic metal'. This fits more than progressive metal because Day Six their sound is not loaded with endless biting guitar - of flashy keyboard 'scale-acrobatics': it contains lots of fresh ideas and captivating shifting moods. An interesting album from a promising Dutch progrock band.

4 stars DAY SIX are a young Prog-Metal band from the Netherlands.Their music contains a lot of tempo shifts and synths, which really add to the atmosphere of their songs.The singer is very good as are all the musicians.

The album opens with "Legend Of The Hollow" and right away we have the lead guitar and the synths trading off solos.There is a galloping melody that comes and goes in the IRON MAIDEN style.The synths really do add to the atmosphere of this tune and I love the sound of the guitar with it's lower tone. "The Law Of The Web" features some good riffs and synths and the vocals are supported with a female choir that sounds amazing. The guitar melody has an almost Arabic feel to it.The song ends with vocals and piano.

"Dark Tower" is a slower, dark song with synths and some great bass work. "No-One Lives Forever" is good , with an amazing guitar melody about 3 1/2 minutes in. Some vocal sampling as well. "Water & Stones" opens with acoustic guitar, synths and vocals, that are again supported with the choir. Some good piano as well. "Day VI" opens with a monologue and the galloping melody again (it's great) .This has such a thumping beat to it. "The Crypt" is the longest song on the record. A slower paced tune that gets aggressive during the chorus. Heavy riffs are contrasted with a guitar melody, light drums and gentle vocals. This song is all over the place (mood shifts and tempo changes). This is a great song.

This is a very promising young band whose debut is excellent, and highly recommended.

4 stars This dutch band named Day Six is young and full of talent on this first release from 2003 named Eternal Dignity. They are a progressive metal outfit and try to capture all is best in this genre, they succeded on every pieces that's true with some outstandig music and catchy arrangements. The music is very well done, quite surprisingly good in some parts like on opening track Legend of the Hollow , a near 11 min of high class progressive symphonic metal with lots of tempo changes and awesome choruses, the keys here truly shines and the last track named The Crypt another goody from this dutch band, another example of how must sound an excellent progressive metal piece in 21 century, brilliant musicianship and inovating keyboards and guitar works. The rest of the pieces are all good, not a weak moment here, from time to time some oriental guitar passages are added to give to the listner a great atmosphre and aswell some arabic or egyptian better said feel to it. The vocals made by Robbie van Stiphout are good and very well is melting with this kind of music, from mellow to dark to a more rougher moments he is the man for this music aproach for sure. Also he is an invited guest in another dutch band who plays symphonic metal named Medea. So, all in all a great album, quite underrated in contrast with the great album they delivered. Some passages are amazing showing that they were a promising band that for some reasons remain unnoticed for wider public. They are now preparing a new album that will be soon relased. Fans of Medea, Lana Lane or even Therion in places will enjoy to the max this band.4 stars, recommended for prog metal listners.

5 stars Another nice band I discovered on this site. Quite progressive and symphonic, a mix of Therion and Black Sabbath with slight Crimsonesque influences. The music is often slow and dark, with melodic guitar solos and refreshing keyboards, but also heavier passages. The vocals are powerful, yet ve ... (read more)
