Quality & Originality:Evergrey is back with the most outrageous over the top dark melodic power metal album of there career. Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Primal Fear) did a superior job of mixing this album. I am totally blown away with the depth of the guitars, bass, drums, keys and the crisp sound of the vocals on this release. Production wise hands down the best I have heard this year!! The songs are very much Evergrey but they have really dug deep and grown since there last release. I am so blown away on the journey that is taken on this album that will blast you into realms of unknown I have never quite heard on any album to date.



My Opinion:The band was to the point of calling it quits not long ago what would have been a total shame. The veterans of melodic have always brought there A game but they went out and really dug deep into there souls to bring out this amazing album that has more ups and downs then anything they have released to date. It is hard, light, soft, harsh, and very emotional in a dynamic way that is perfection I am willing to go as far as saying a total masterpiece!!! If you like anything from metal, prog, power, melodic and even thrash you have to pick this very powerful album up it will really inspire you in a musical way!!


Overall & Favorites:Black Undertow, King Of Errors, The Grand Collapse. I am doing something I have NEVER done in the entire time I have reviewed, radioed or talked about I give this powerful masterful album a 10/10
