4 stars This record is a clear example of the balance between excellence, power and innovation. Indeed, I should admit that Evergrey is one of the few bands that have been able to detect the opportunity of creating a proper style and post it into the prog music scenario as a new option of playing high category music. Their particular combination of dark influences with prog metal resulted into an ear-refreshing and addictive delicious kind of music.

"In Search Of Truth" is the third release of the band, a mature recording that has the same force and technics of the previous CD's but focusing a new direction. It is a conceptual album about the story of man that has been the victim of an encountering with creatures from out of this world. Those creatures watch each and every move and take control of his life.

Respect to the music, there is no track similar to the other ones. However, all of them are part of the same style, each one has its own essence. The keyboard lines throughout the complexity of riffs, the force and inspiration on the guitars, the dark presence of bass guitar, the emotive voice of Englund and the drums of Karlsson make of this recording a real jewel..

Describing this album in few words is very difficult because listening to Evergrey, and especially to this record is more than enjoying music, it is means to have a real musical experience. This album fits into a new conception of masterpieces on prog metal, their style has something particular that makes it addictive and maybe even obsessive. This is the kind of albums that should be listened by every people.

If you havenīt begun with Evergrey this is a recommended record to start with. Evergrey is more than a simple metal band, they are the future responsible of much of the music in early future. That is the reason I decided to give four stars to this album. Excellent adition to any collection, be it prog or not. Congratulations boys. Continue this way!!!

Good Progressions!!!
