5 stars Redemption have evolved with the addition of the very big vocalist called Ray Alder. Their third album and second with Ray keeps the very high level that was established in 'the fullness of time'. 'The origins of ruin' is a bit more aggressive than its predecessor but the same technical and melodic. There are numerous glorious moments. The guitar-intricate 'the suffocating silence' with the catchy refrain and top-notch music,the aggressive and lyrically-correct 'the death of faith and reason' which will make your head bang for 5 minutes, the reminiscent of Fates Warning 'bleed me dry', the one of the nicest dark ballads that I have ever heard 'the origins of ruin',the initially atmospheric which turns to a more state-of-play musical delirium 'blind my eyes' , the heavy and speedy 'used to be' and the too progressive 'fall on you' with the continual shifts in mood. The other songs that I did not mention are very good actually. One of the most complete efforts in progressive that I have heard in the 5-year experience in this kind of music. Highly recommended to any progressive listener. It is a crime not to rate it with 5 stars.
