Heaven Rain - Far And Forever
Every once in a while an album from a not so obvious country finds its way to the Metalrage.com headquarters. This time it’s Heaven Rain from Bosnia. Well let’s see what these rockers have to say on their debut album called Far And Forever.
 
During the first couple of songs it's quite obvious they have some great influences of Ayreon, Dream Theater. Combine these to bands with the power of Helloween and you’ll have a clue of the sound of Heaven Rain. Just hold this thought for a minute. Add to this a digital production that make the drums sound like a drum machine and the keyboard like a trance DJ. So, now you’ll have the total picture of Heaven Rain.
 
Okay maybe the production is not great but let’s look at the songs themselves. First of all there are some instrumental songs. With those songs I’m always a bit sceptic because they have to give you a certain feeling. With Heaven Rain this feeling is really not present, most of the time I get really annoyed by the keyboard that’s way upfront in the mix. Add to this the not so good song writing of Heaven Rain and you’ll get my point.
 
I’m not saying that the production ruined everything, it's just that the songs aren’t the most original ones and when they’re put through such a production, I’m not quite able to see a lot of positive points on this album. Well let’s put it this way, considering this is just their first album, there’s a lot of room for improvement.
