Indeed, this phoenix cannot die, and therefore each time to sublimate…
New album of the Czech EAGLEHEART, founded in 2003 by guitarist Michal Kus helped by Vojta “Kai” Šimoník (vocals), Michal “MJ” Jankuliak (guitars), Jirí “Wágner” Fiala (bass), Zdenek “Smrt” Vémola (drums), note that after a first EP (Black Sun) and an album “Time Of Life” in 2008, tabled in our feet is the new offering (today housed in Scarlet Records), recorded at Grapow Studios, under the kindness and talent of the producer guitarist and singer, Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween) entitled “Dreamtherapy”.
Modern Epic Progressive Power Metal but it’s not it in fact…
Just imagine a bombastic and bodybuilded Stratovarius, Dream Theater who’s finally incisive and going to the point, Malmsteen’s Rising Force released of a sclerosant egocentrisme and now indomitable, a sexy Pagan’s Mind, Helloween which took root in England, a “Germanic” Sonata Arctica: everything here is perfection and much more.
Two advantages of weight: voice and shreds, absolutely incredible, inspired, which emmenent 10 compositions (not details here, everything is remarkable melodic power and each piece remains unstoppable) of the perfect album to heights of efficiency, clear and majestic melodies, and lyrics are “wow”, under the common cumulation of age and astonishing as the lightnings, killer riffs and Dantesque production (in the form). Navigating in an atmosphere that takes us back in our commotions in the discovery of the One Night In Budokan by the blond Archangel Michael Schenker or experienced enjoyment after the Number Of The Beast, this sensation won’t never be the same…
After having burned the stages alongside the bands like WASP, Blaze Bayley, André Matos, Elvenking, Dark Moor, and House Of Lords, nothing can stop these proud animals. As the infinite skies, the future belongs to EAGLEHEART.
And even if the dawn is arriving, I do not want to wake me up, I still want to fly, soar, caressing clouds, because you see, this dream makes my heart beat. This music makes my heart beat.
In the nocturnal escapades of the royal Raptor listen to his song, fixed to the Moon, because his piercing eyes can find your soul: appoints his name and be saved: EAGLEHEART!
