EYEFEAR - 9 ELEMENTS OF INNER VISION - MASSACRE/NIGHTMARE
Australia's Eyefear may not be the world's most distinctive band, but it does what it does with composure and grace. The band is best tagged as progressive rock with its melodic delivery, smooth higher-pitched vocals (courtesy of former Pegazus singer Danny Cecati) and keyboard orientation. Songs range from four to seven minutes in length and chart a course straight down the middle of the progressive strait. The tracks are juxtaposed by veering into the more symphonic or being heavier and having more substantive guitar chords. As such, this will be of interest to both fans of melodic hard rock and progressive genres. - Ali "The Metallian"
