3 stars Another east-Europian band,but this time in the progressive metal genre,EVERWOOD were formen in 1997 under the name of Neverwood by childhood friends Attila Tanzcer and Viktor Erdos.Several line-up changes will take place in the first years' of the band's existence until in 2000 the band recorded their first demo.After 2 years the band released a second deno/EP with the new vocalist Balazs Koncz and,due to the great critics,the band gained some popularity,enough to lead them to their first ever record called ''Mind games'' in 2005...

...and I confess that this is a very strong debut.Combining the complexity of DREAM THEATER,the elegancy of SAVATAGE and the aggresiveness of PAIN OF SALVATION,the band delivers very good progressive metal with high potentials for the future.One of the strongest aces of the band is the presence of Attila Tanczer behind the keyboards,a very balanced keyboard player with a highly symphonic style of playing alternating between grandiose bombastic complex playing and minimalistic atmospheric passages.Balasz Koncz's voice is another strong point of the band,very close to Zach Stevens of SAVATAGE,and a tight style of singing without mistakes.The tracks are quite unsimilar but all of them are great with nice well- crafted arrangements and strong vocals.Highlights of the album are ''Rememberances of a fallen angel'',a dramatic track in the vein of DREAM THEATER,''The Colonists'',superb track with great piano/keyboards and a sound between OPETH and PoS,''Jeanne D'Arc'',an old track of the band with heavy guitars,tight rhythm section and bombastic keyboards,''Pagan'',which contains the greatest rhythm of all and a thrilling soft middle part,and finally ''Who's the one to blame'',which is their closest comparison to SAVATAGE of ''Edge of thorns''-era...

The hungarian progressive metal scene is in a constant rise for quite a long time and EVERWOOD are just a proof of that fact.Anyone who's deep into progressive metal and likes different style of arrangements,speeds and moods should check EVERWOOD out.Their debut is very strong and deserves a 3.5 stars rating.Well done!

4 stars I'm wandering quite often about the past and the future of the so called progressive metal music. After all, the conclusion of my inner thoughts was rather disappointing... Very few artists have taken seriously their intentions and even fewer succeeded to present to the public a refreshing and no ... (read more)
