Tunnelvision Progressive Metal

Review by Ovidiu

4 stars After a single audition of this album and I felt instant love and sympathy for this band from the cold FINLAND!!!TUNNELVISION have something that makes instantly catchy and attractive their music!It's nothing breathtaking,but it's well done and the melodic aspect is the main idea of the band!For some fans,well,pretentious fans of prog metal,thetYwill say that TUNNELVISION are a PAGAN'S MIND clone!From the point of view of the vocalist,yes,that's true,there are many accords when MARKO WAARA sings almost identically to Niels from PAGAN'S MIND,but from the technical aspect,there is still a long way for TUNNELVISION to reach the masterful qualities of the Norvegians,that's for sure !!The same nosy voice like Niels K RUE and accord,but definitelly the Fin guy has his own personality!The structure of the songs is very clever melodic orientated,and the main purpose of the band is to display their sense of composition,but the technical aspect is important too!Very fine and inspired choruses and themes,easily recognisable and instantly pleasant!The use of the keyboards is very beautiful, with a modern sound and sometimes a spatial vibe!The guitar player Juhani is pushing some grea solos,but the sound and tone of the guitar in harmony riffs is simply excellent!The songs are mainly midtempo and there are plenty of long inspired instrumental passages,that's why the length of the album is a little more than 1 hour!The main quality of the album is the fact tahat there are no weak tracks,all are at a very high level and it's so regretable thet they have disbanded,because nothing new about this band was heared from a long time! They fortunatelly had their moment of glory....I don't know if they could have surpass the Norvegian s PAGAN'S MIND,but I am sure that TUNNELVISION had a huge potential that was never plenty revealed .4 SOLID Stars for a very good prog metal album ,full of excellent compositions ,produced by some extremelly capable musicians!

Tunnelvision Progressive Metal

Review by b_olariu

4 stars Tunnelvision is an unknown progressive metal band from Finland, releasing only two albums since now. The second album named Tomorrow from 2002 is a real pleasure to listen if you are fan of bands like Pagan's Mind or Artension. What strikes me to this band is the melodicity of the album as a whole, very well is melted the rougher moments with the more mellow ones, realy great. The instrumental passgeas are very well done, from blistering key solos to guitar riffs and solos of real calibre. The voice of Marko Waara is very good for this kind of music, feets like a glove, alterning from rough to mellow in places. Tunnelvision is similar in arrangements with another well known band from Scandinavia Pagan's Mind, they are not a copy they have their own sound with a lot to offer. All the pieces stands as very good, not a weak moment, Silence, The Hermit (Wait And See) or Don Juan's Triumph are examples of solit prog metal, pieces that for sure will please many of the prog metal listners. I will give 4 stars easy, while are not so great like Pagan's MInd or Artension and bring nothing new in this genre, they are very solid band with talented musicians.
Thanks to b_olariu for the artist addition.
