Prog Reviewer
3 stars Dead Heroes Club is a neo prog band from Ireland lesser known in prog circles with 2 albums under their belt released so far. The second album offered in 2009 named A time of shadow and issued by Progrock records is a pleasent album overall, but is little to paced and mid tempo most of the time for my liking. Some long pieces are present here like the best track of the album , opening Theatre of the Absurd, nice instrumental parts, pleasent voice, the title track with almost 16 min in lenght show some good potential of this band but to much time they didn't burst in instrumental passages, they play thet mid tempo neo prog on every piece, with exception shorter The Centre Cannot Hold. I would like to here more complex passages, more instrumental parts, because are few of them on whole album, the band rely more on vocal department, btw Liam Campbell did a good job here, has a great voice for such music. Fans of Genesis at some point and neo bands from late '80's early '90's can have some spins, but I don't think is something spectacular, at least for me. The album is not advenurous and rich in arrangements, is only ok and nothing more. 3 stars, nice cover art.
