3 stars Beyond Twilight has been described as "dark cinematic metal" and that's fairly accurate. Or you can say "dark Broadway metal" for being highly theatrical and musically dense, requiring attention to details. The emphasis is on vocals and synths and creating a dark and futuristic atmosphere. A lesson for extreme metalheads on how to create disturbing and heavy music without growling and blastbeats. But has its faults, however. For prog, it's short, barely 40 minutes if you cut out the filler, and the longer songs, while being diverse in vocal and keyboard delivery, can sound rhythmically monotonous. And there surely must be a limit on how many times you're allowed to rhyme fire with desire. Seriously guys, when you come from an obvious classical background, there must be a colleague out there who can help out with the lyrics. In summation, Beyond Twilight may be of interest for prog metal completists, always out for an obscure band from the Nordics (in that case, I would also suggest fellow Northerners Dreamscape and Atmosfear as examples of fine but completely unknown bands), and fans of vocalist-for-hire Jorn Lande, who really delivers a romp here, roaring, crooning, howling and meowing throughout the all-too-short 40 minutes.
