SEVENTH WONDER Waiting In The Wings
Lion Music (2006)

Follow-up to the band's 2005 debut 'Become' and the band now have a new vocalist join, Tommy Karevik. The music is well played progressive metal with some very good keys/guitar interplay most notably on the epic title track, which clocks in at over nine minutes.

'Taint the Sky' has some great vocals and again the guitar solos are a pleasure to listen to - guitarist Johan Liefvendahl manages to play tight solos without the need for speed or showy solos (Dragonforce take note!).

With Tommy Hansen at the mixing desk you know it is a safe pair of hands and the new vocalist does get many chances to shine. Occasionally they miss the mark and personally I would have had 'Taint the Sky open the album as the opening track 'Star Of David' is a bit too prog metal by numbers.

An enjoyable album, with the band firmly emphasising melody throughout the songs and a band who you feel have still yet to record their classic album but until then this album is more than worthy of a listen.
