TOMORROW'S EVE Mirror of Creation 2 - Genesis II|
Lion Music (2006)
The band's second album and the first with new vocalist Martin LeMar. The album is a concept one based on the storyline of man who has no idea who he is and how his memory starts to come back thanks to a nurse who looks after him.
Buta ll is not it seems and both may have met before as part of a experiment that met a sticky end... An intriguing plotline which coupled with the music brings to mind Queensryche and Savatage. There is as you'd expect on a progressive metal album like this short interludes, lots of riffs and some immense choruses (when Jenny Clos joins in on 'Not From This World' you get an album highlight).
Centre piece is the 17 minutes epic 'The Trials Of Man' which encompasses all the main elements of this genre - rapid fire drums, walls of guitars, soaring vocals and keyboard solos.
This is a very enjoyable release and one that would put some more established bands to shame. LeMar is just the right sort of vocalist for this music - big and powerful yet able to sing the mellower moments with ease as well.
