Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
Gothenburg’s finest export unleash this mouthwatering taster for their soon to be released ‘Escape of the Phoenix’ long player.
Full of their trademark fire and epic sweep, this is grandstanding heavy rock that boasts the confidence of never having to try too hard but just naturally grabs you and never lets you go.
With their perfect balance of hard, fast riffing and emotional depth, this is a both a defiant statement and a challenge to potential friends and foes alike.
Muscular, soaring and very thrilling, Evergrey once more lead the way and show whilst most of the focus has traditionally been on a British and American bands, mainland Europe has more than its fair share of superleague players.
With an incredible back catalogue, there’s never been a better time to catch up with your new favourite band.
This, one and all is a prime example of world domination by stealth, so the only good advice is to prepare to bow down.
