Eyefear - World Full Of Grey
Eyefear from Australia are a progressive power metal band, with a recent new album. I am not really keen to do this review, but there is much work yet to be done, so I volunteered. The album is entitled World Full Of Grey and honestly, I really do not know what to expect from this. The only bands that I know from Australia are more extreme bands like Blood Duster, Abominator and stuff like that.
 
The first song on the album is called ‘Searching For Forgiveness’ and this song confirmed everything I thought about this band priory before reviewing this album. It is power metal, so beware of the high screaming of the vocalist. Luckily, he doesn’t overdo it and on some stages he even manages to impress me.
 
The progressive elements really come back in the song ‘Lost Within’ where the chorus is totally freaked out, which I really like. The complexity of the songs is very high and this means you can easily get lost into the big void that is called music. I’m really forced to say that the music on this album is best understood by real progressive power metal fans, but for what I can make of it, it really sounds okay!
 
People who expect speed to be a factor in Eyefear, are badly mistaken. There was never a  moment where I was thinking to myself; “Damn, this shit is fast!” Now, it is not a big problem of course, but when I listen to power metal I really expect some insane speed limits.

Ah, I've found another point which I really think is unnessecary in this album, which is the tenth track. This is a radio edit for the song 'Searching For Forgiveness' I really dislike the idea "Radio Edit" If I was to have a radio station, I would just plug the music as it is supposed to be, but that is just something personal I guess.
 
Everything concluded, I think this is a really decent band, but lacks the immense power of bands like Dream Theater. This doesn't mean it is a bad choice though, but listen carefully before buying this album!
