probably the evergrey album with the most unapologetic pop-appeal yet. still a lot of fun to listen to though, especially if you like the band. only personal letdown is paradox of the flame; the first carina duet that does nothing for me and lets me skip out of boredom.
Fellow Evergrey fans, please check out my review of 'The Storm Within' - I'm pretty sure many of you will approve! Cheers! https://manofmuchmetal.wordpress.com/2016/08/11/evergrey-the-storm-within-album-review/
Brand new interview with Johan, Jonas & Rikard about the line-up reunion & New album, 'Hymns For The Broken': https://manofmuchmetal.wordpress.com/2015/06/29/evergrey-interview-its-a-completely-different-band-now/
Coroamos um rei sem alma quando todas as portas estão fechadas, andamos sozinhos. Sabemos que Você nos vê, Você sempre O fez, e toda vez que fecho seus olhos, Você nos faz sumir. Você não se pergunta se dormimos a noite, se ficamos em silêncio ou se achamaos que Você está certo ? No final Você nunca esteve certo.
Even though Evergrey has always been Tom Englund's baby, I think the new album and Torn and Glorious Collision before it demonstrates that Evergrey works best when Tom has a team of capable and like-minded musicians writing and working with him. After all, the best albums have been produced when the lineup was somewhat stable.
After the masterpiece that was Monday Morning Apocalypse, I felt they went off the boil a bit with Torn and Glorious Collision; as if they were searching for a new sound but hadn't quite found it. They hit a few spots but generally missed. Now they have found it with Hymns...... and it's pure melodic metal perfection.
