On disc: Afterworld
(Noise Records - 2000)
Another Finnish band, but more based in the melodic and fast power metal. The influences of the quintet are very different and cover everything from classical music to death metal! About a year ago the debut Dark Side Of Mind been released through Noise Records and since that time the band played quite a few shows in their home country. Soon they started working on new material which they now present. Lyrically they deal with the struggles of daily life. But that doesn't mean that this album is full of dark emotions! With Money, Money, Money they covered a song od ABBA, but that was planned for a while and is not to be part of the trend!
Musically they offer power metal, well done, but nothing spectacular.... A good album which won't easily find the way to the fans due to the fact of so many high class releases this year!
