In the Name biography
IN THE NAME is a progressive metal band formed in early ?90?s in Canada. They released only one album in 1995 selftitled, released at Rising sun records. Their music is a cross between Queensryche, specialy the vocal parts and Fates Warning on instrumental passages. They are a good progressive metal band that for some reasons never made it in this scene and remains unknown to wider public to the very day. They disbanded soon after the album issue. Fans of progressive metal can take some spins because they have some intristing arrangements overall.

4 stars In The Name was an obscure progressive metal band from Toronto, having only released this single self-titled album in 1995 before disappearing into oblivion. The band was originally known as Kingsbane, and later as Seven Years, before changing their name to In The Name - if we're counting the releases under those two names, you can also find two demo releases from this lineup. Either way, In The Name is the only official release from this moniker; a bit of a shame considering all of the great things on this debut effort. While this may not one of the best progressive metal albums from the mid-nineties', it's a sadly forgotten obscurity that should be heard by all enthusiasts of the genre. I'm certainly glad to have lent an ear to this hidden gem.

While a fair amount of progressive metal is focused on long, epic compositions with dominant keyboards and bombastic arrangements, In The Name instead focuses on creating short, complex, and catchy compositions. Only one song here exceeds the seven-minute mark, and many of the others tend to average around the five-minute mark. There are lots of quirky complexities, acoustic guitars, and even jazzy solos, but the biggest focus of this album is on accessible and well-composed pieces. In that regard, I'm frequently reminded of Fates Warning (especially their Parallels album), Psychotic Waltz, and Queensryche. In The Name's keyboard-less approach to progressive metal was becoming increasingly unpopular towards this half of the nineties', and I personally love the raw edge that their guitar-based approach provides. The mix of undistorted electric guitars, heavy-edged riffs, and even a fair amount of acoustic guitar is much more powerful than one may imagine, and even though In The Name comes across slightly derivative of Psychotic Waltz and Fates Warning, I still really appreciate their back-to-basics musical approach. These lads are also gifted songwriters, and that shines throughout the vast majority of this rather long album. Songs like "Endless Night", "Dead of Winter", "Gypsy's Night", and the acoustic "Shame" are especially easy to pick out, but I honestly love most of this album. The last 3 songs, which appear to be re-recorded versions of songs on the Kingsbane demo (the sound quality sounds a lot better here than it does on the demo), are also pretty excellent.

In The Name hardly offered anything new to the progressive metal scene with this debut, but they did deliver a batch of great songs that are certainly worthy of your attention. It's really a shame that this album has been entirely forgotten by the sands of time - I'd have a tough time imagining a fan of Psychotic Waltz and Fates Warning not having an absolute blast with this gem. While the production is a bit muddy and the music isn't anything groundbreaking, this is an excellent example of great musicians delivering some damn impressive prog metal music. I'd say a 3.5 - 4 star rating is well deserved for this sadly ignored beauty. If you like classic progressive metal and haven't heard this, I'd recommend changing that if you can find a reasonably priced copy. Though not flawless, this is a truly great album - I can only imagine what would've happened had the band not split so quickly.

Review by Ovidiu

5 stars This album is what I like to call a forgotten masterpiece of prog metal!Well,not quite prog metal in the pure sense of the term,but definitelly a solid rock album with some prog touch and some genius compositions,trully brilliant and catchy from the first to the last note!IN THE NAME is a Canadian band born from the ashes of a band called MADRIGAL and with this unique album they let to the good music lovers a brilliant album,trully original and played with burning passion!If I try to fing some similar touches with other bands,the only name that comes in my mind are the fantastic PSYCHOTIC WALTZ!Even the way how the IN THE NAME vocalist is singing and the great variery of the impressive guitar work-all this elements are comparable with the ones of the great PSYCHOTIC WALTZ!Fabien Madeleine-the IN THE NAME vocalist has a dramatic tone and a wide range of vocal expressions-from very sensitive and calm ones to some unbelieveble rage and frustration vocal tones in his brilliant voice! Impossible not to be captured , fascinated ,mesmerized by the imense talent of this band and the fantastic variety of guitar expressions-all the compositions are so diverse and well written- that makes of this album an unforgetable moment of audition!It 's realy sad that IN THE NAME disbanded only after one album,I don't know why,but surely with such complex and intelligent music they didn't get a wider audience and I am sure that the sales didn't hit the sky either! From my point of view,this album is simply wonderful,exceptional from the point of view of the quality of the compositions ,catchy,intense and interesting from the first to the last track- without any weak composition!I gave it 5 stars ,because it's an album of a rare quality and definitelly it has something magical in it's musical core !

3 stars In the Name is a forgotten progressive metal band from Canada who released only one album in 1995 selftitled, released at Rising sun records. They play a combination between Psychotic Waltz, for the heavier arrangements and in places they remind me of Queensryche, not to much but some elements are clear comming from this band, specialy on some vocal arrangements made by Fabien Madeleine and some acustical instrumentations. A good album, nothing spectacular or brilliant, but this album is made with honesty and has some very good pieces like Far cry, Endless night, Blinded or Dead of winter, grat bass line interluded perfectly with guitar elements. My CD has 3 bonus tracks who sounds like the rest of the pieces from the album. A progressive metal band almost forgotten in this scene and for sure needs a wider attention. They disbanded a couple of years after the release of the album and no one heared about them anything. 3 stars, good album with good musicianship.
