Eyevory biography
Founded in Bremen, Germany in 2012

German band EYEVORY was formed in 2012 as a direct successor to Pink Mercury, the latter an outfit with a history going back to the early 2000's with a good handful of releases to their name. But in the latter stages of Pink Mercury's history alterations in line-up and stylistic expression lead to the band opting to continue with a new name rather than continuing with the old one at that point.

Eyevory made their debut with The True Bequest in the summer of 2012, half an hour of music described as an EP by the band, with a full length production planned for a 2013 release.

3 stars From Bremen, Germany comes this interesting band, found in 2009 as Pink Mercury with female bassist/singer Jana Frank, female keyboardist/flutist/singer Kaja Fischer, guitarist David Merz and drummer Sascha Barasa Suso.For two years in the row they won the German Rock & Pop award for the best progressive band, while they played live at numerous occasions, even supporting Canadians Saga.With the the help of Eloy's mastermind Frank Bornemann they recorded their debut EP ''The true bequest'' in 2012, around the time they had changed their name to Eyevory.

The result was a refreshing and rich Heavy Progressive Rock, split in straightforward tunes and more elaborate, intricate passages, not very complex, but definitely well-arranged with a very good production.Eyevory's music is based on edgy lead guitars, Hard Rockin' solos and smooth female vocals with a good range, sometimes in dual performances.The atmosphere of the album is quite bombastic and pounding, flirting often with more cinematic/symphonic textures due to the use of airy keyboards and the constant offering of excellent flute interludes.There is a certain comfort of the band to change from easy-listening, punchy rhythmic deliveries to dramatic and delicate instrumental themes.They even added a track sung in Spanish in the menu, sung amazingly by the two female singers with little to recall that this group is actually German.The overall result is close to bands such as EDENSONG, KARNATAKA or MOSTLY AUTUMN, although Eyevory's approach is certainly less ethereal and more powerful.

Depending on this work, that is about 35 minutes long, I can see nothing else than a bright future for this German combo.Their music is absolutely efficient with tremendous songwriting and a fairly good instrumental execution.Strongly recommended, definitely a band to keep an eye on...3.5 stars.

3 stars I don't know, guys. I'm not so sure about this strange album. I went into it expecting a dark tone, but I really don't get much of that. What I do get, however, is a lot of wailing and half- rapping. Oh, and did I mention this band features a female vocalist?

I love female vocalists. Actually, right now, I'm itching to find a new female-fronted band that I'll love because I haven't found one in a while. However, I don't really like the style found on this album, "Euphobia". The singer has a very "pop" sound to her voice, but then she does use it in some rather strange ways. Like I said, there's a lot of wailing and half-rapping, and also much bounciness to it. I love when a singer tries new things, but sometimes it doesn't connect with me. Don't get me wrong, she has a good voice. I just don't think she knows what to do with it.

Now, I'm struggling to figure out a rating for this album. Thing is: Although I'm not a fan of the vox, I do really like the music, for the most part. The standout instrument is certainly the flute. The flute is intense, vibrant, and extremely well-composed. It really saves some of the tracks here. On top of that, there is a nice ethnic vibe to some of the songs that is rather pleasant, and the synth is also great. The music overall has a slightly electronic feel to it, but with some rather organic instruments, too. Indeed, I think this band could have been labeled heavy prog very easily. So, you see, I like the music, but I feel the vocalist is out of place.

Overall, a good debut album. It's nothing overly special, and I think the vox need work. However, this band is on to something with the respectful way they treat some of the instruments. Maybe, just maybe, this band's future could be bright.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
