Eyefear comes from Australia and even if "A World Full of Grey" is already the 3rd album of the combo, I have to confess that it's the first time that I hear some words about them. But well anyway at least this new release will be a good way to discover the band which plays a cool mix of Power and Progressive Metal.
"A World Full of Grey" is a really special and original album. First the voice of the new singer, Paul Souza, is a mix of the voices of Bruce Dickinson and Tobias Sammet and when you know that the band plays Progressive music, that's really unconventional. Though, even if the music of Eyefear is Progressive with a lot of keyboards and a ton of breaks there and there, I have to say that the album is clearly oriented toward the European Power Metal direction. It's my only problem with this release actually, I thought first that it was a real Prog album but it's more like a Power Metal one with some Progressive influences. It's not bad but don't except something a la Pain Of Salvation here, Eyefear plays Power Metal…
On the other hand, if you like to listen to good Power, "A World Full of Grey" is a good album. Really dark and definitely not in the vein of the numerous hyper melodic European Power Metal releases, this album is different. Plus I have to say it again but the performance of Paul Souza is extremely good and I cannot say anything against the other musicians which are all really good too. This time maybe that the line-up will not change anymore (it's a trend with this combo apparently, especially with their singers) for the good of the band and I think that this album will be a good way to become a bit more famous in Europe and America.
"A World Full of Grey" is a nice album of Proggy Power Metal. If you're bored by Sonata Arctica and want a Power which is a lot more complex and deep, just have a look on this release and you'll find something for you. Eyefear has the capabilities to become a great band, if they can confirm this feeling and develop a bit the Progressive side of their music, be sure that we will talk about them soon!
