Prog Reviewer
5 stars The Swedish progressive symphonic metal / hard rock band BOOK OF HOURS was formed in 1996. With two demo tapes behind them, Record Heaven contacted them in 1999 to release BOOK OF HOURS debut CD. ANEKDOTEN influences the band, and you can hear a lot of it in their music. There's also reminiscences to DREAM THEATER and LANDBERK. The distorted bass and the heavy guitars together with the strong melodies forms a high-class progressive rock. My favourite tracks are "Fifth dimension", "Infertile Ground", "Tender contempt" and the final track "Den trettonde månaden", which got lyrics in Swedish. The band did the nice cover by themselves. This is one of the best releases so far in 1999. Strongly recommended!
