Prog Reviewer
4 stars Once again I have the privilege to review an overwhelmingly good Swedish Progressive Metal band. MIND'S EYE's second album "Waiting for the Tide" will probably be one of my favourite albums in the progressive metal genre at the end of the year. Though I haven't heard of them before, the band was originally formed in 1992 as AFTERGLOW.

Their highly complex metal is showing a band of excellent musicians, and the compositions is blending progressive metal with a little bit of AOR and fusion. You can hear some reminiscences to bands such as DREAM THEATER, MARILLION, QUEENSRYCHE, RUSH, VANDEN PLAS and YES. Andreas Novak who has performed in Sweden and Lithuania with Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Jesus Christ Superstar" last year handles the strong and powerful vocals.

The beautiful cover artwork are a masterpiece in it's own rights. Not surprisingly it's done by the magnificent Mattias Norén who have created art works for bands such as ARENA, FORGOTTEN SUNS, MAYADOME, MOURNINGSTAR, TRIANGLE and WOLVERINE.

This is a high quality Swedish progressive metal album that is highly recommended. Don't just go waiting for the album, go buy it!
