Tomorrow’s Outlook - A Voice Unheard

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It was clearly announced that TOMORROW'S OUTLOOK's second album “A Voice Unheard” would be a concept one. With that, I thought I'd start with listening without digging into the story and see where it lands. And by all means, the songs work really well as stand-alone too. There is some outstanding songwriting on this album as it includes a lot of fines and details which makes it more and more interesting after each spin.

Thanallian - Between Worlds

I was quite surprised when Anna Pavlů started to sing in EP opener “We Know”. It wasn't what I was expecting. On the other hand, I don't know what I was expecting either. Her voice leans more towards Goth, female fronted modern style than what I’d expect from the melodic Heavy Metal Czech THANALLIAN as they describe themselves. A matter of interpretation and perception, of course.

Axel Rudi Pell - Knights Call

Axel Rudi Pell, the master of melancholic guitar-melodies, strikes again on “Knights Call” and delivers yet another batch of the smooth Heavy Metal that has become his trademark sound over the years. And it is a pleasing start of the album with the snappy “The Wild And The Young” which holds a catchy chorus and in general a very good vibe. Johnny Gioeli's voice has that nice harshness and rasp to it which charges the melodies even more.

Gatekeeper - East Of Sun

It is painful to realize again and again that it is impossible to be up-to-date with the new releases in Metal nowadays. The simple days of passing by your favorite record store to see what is new this month is a constantly fading away memory and has been already replaced by the digital platform. So, one has to rely on his gut and try a new band based on a short snippet, or in this case, on the album’s cover artwork. Yeah, I was drawn to “East Of Sun” the moment I caught a glimpse of the Epic cover artwork with the almost Moorcock aesthetics, and once I saw this was a Cruz Del Sur Music release, the GATEKEEPER’s debut LP become a must-check album.
