Has anyone else heard the album "Burn The Sun" by Ark. I purchased it about month ago and is definetly one of the shining stars of my music collection, along with Startovarius and spocksbeard. Ark are a prog metal/rock band and there stuff is quite melo

It's a really good album, that's for sure. Perhaps one of the best prog-metal albums in my collection.Great vokal and guitar performances. But please don't compare it to Stratovarius...

I agree completely.

I wasn't comparing it to Stratovarius but i was saying that i value you it as much as the stratovarius cd's in my collection (elements pt 1 and pt 2) which are great albums in my opinion although very different to Ark.

Long live progression.

Ark probably had the best heavy metal' voice at that time; Jrn Lande. He has given up the band and is now the lead singer of the German powermetal outfit Masterplan. This dude really sing like an angel. He infact reminds me alot of David Coverdale. Anothe

Their first album is much more ambitious and the bass sound is much more pleasant to listen to.

I generally do not like "metal prog."  Indeed, although I will get shot for saying this, I really don't even like Rush (on the whole; there are many specific songs that I do like).

That said, I consider "Burn the Sun" one of t

I got their first two albums a few weeks ago.  And they rock!!!  I didn't know that they split up though :/  Heal the Waters is my favourite track, and should be put up on the archives!!

I am ordered it and I am listening to it right now. Man!! a 5 star CD!! I moved  to get the whole album because last year I downloaded one of the best tune from the album ( Resurrection) man what a killer tune so I finally  got  to hear the whole album and I am loving it all ready. some part sound like Latin Prog-Metal. again 5 star. if you're  into Cristal clear metal hard rock albums this is  a most.

It's a masterpiece. It's also a really eclectic mix of styles ... it has some quite heavy moments, but I would recommend it to anyone who can at least tolerate the (later) Porcupine Tree type of heaviness.

As a matter of fact I think that Ark - Burn the Sun is quite unique. I just meant that people who can tolerate the *heaviness* of albums like In Absentia or Deadwing won't have any problem with this album.Smile

Im not a fan of it. ARK is too power metal for my taste... although I must admit, if you like that genre, its pretty top notch stuff
