MIND'S EYE A Gentleman's Hurricane Lion Music (2007)

The band's 2006 album 'Walking On H20' was superb but they have only gone and bettered it on this new album, a concept piece following the story of an assassin and his confessions to a priest, who himself hides some dark secrets!

Opening with a very cinematic piece 'Praying For Confession' (grab your headphones for this album to fully appreciated the sound effects and dialogue) complete with strings, massed choirs - the works basically.

Mind's Eye are the masters of creating complex yet highly addictive tunes and vocals none more so than 'Feed My Revolver', a great piece of melodic prog rock and the lead single complete with video. In fact only A.C.T. come close to Mind's Eye skill at harmony filled progressive rock music.

Vocalist Andreas Novak is performing at the top of his game here - just marvel at his vocal delivery on 'Seven Days' or 'AssassiNation'. Drummer/producer/arranger Daniel Flores deserves special mention as he has produced a masterpiece here - lots going on musically and great attention spent in the arrangements and storyline.

Johan Nieman on guitar adds solos as and when needed plus adds metal bombast when required. For fans of female vocals there is a lovely duet on 'The Hour Of Need' where Crucified Barbara's vocalist Mia Coldheart blends well with Andreas Novak's vocal.

The whole album and story is one of the best I have heard since 'Operation Mindchrime', yes it really is that good! Fans of melodic rock and progressive rock/metal should add this to their shopping lists now.
