TR3NITY ‘The Cold Light Of Darkness’
Cyclops (2005)

After recently witnessing a splendid gig by this band I did the decent thing and bought a CD! Now many years ago back in the 1980’s I was a big fan of all things prog but fell out of touch with the whole scene in the 90’s.

It’s only in the last couple of years that my love of all things progressive has been rekindled mainly due to progressive metal bands and if, like me, you are a lapsed fan then Tr3nity will reawaken your love of this type of music. Tr3nity tip a nod to the 80’s/90’s British progressive music of IQ and Jadis but like these two bands have the musical appeal and more importantly the tunes to appeal to a much wider audience.

There is a concept behind this album and although I am never very good at getting some I think this is about child abuse and forgotten childhood. Musically the band are top draw with the keyboards of Paul Gath a particular listening delight. The soundscapes created by the band are ones you can easily get lost in (headphones are recommended for full effect!) like ‘Eyes Of A Child’ and the guitar work on ‘Into The Dark’. Stand out track has to be the piano/vocal on ‘Is There A Paradise?’ where vocalist Chris Campbell delivers an impassioned and haunting vocal.

Go along and see the band live if you get a chance, otherwise enjoy this CD and for people who have enjoyed Marillion, Camel, IQ et al you will be in for a treat. The music does deserve a wider audience as well and don’t be put off if you usually are by the tag ‘prog rock’.

*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
