Overview

When your band contains instrumentalists who have previously been spotted strutting their stuff in the likes of Fates Warning and Prymary, you know that the "prog metal quotient" is going to be quite high. And that certainly proves to be the case with the fifth release overall by Redemption, 2009's Snowfall on Judgement Day. Added to all the chop-heavy metal is a heavy '80s metal vibe -- due to all the Maiden-esque guitar harmonies, thrash metal guitar chugging, and -- of course -- the unmistakable vocals of Ray Alder (who has been manning the mike for Fates Warning since 1988). Cases in point include such technically demanding ditties as "Walls" and "Black and White World." And for anyone doubting how "prog" Snowfall on Judgement Day is, a guest spot by Dream Theater's longtime vocalist James LaBrie (on the track "Another Day Dies") should silence any doubters.

Nick Van Dyk & Co never cease to amaze me with the stuff they come up with. This one is more heavy in the guitar department than in past albums, a heavier & darker album overall but with outstanding songcraft. The trademark mellower moments are still present with the songs still having the ebb & flow of slower/ easier going parts mixed in with the more aggessive moments. Basically they turn up the gas when needed & mellow it out where necessary. A really nice listen, if you are a fan of the band, you will love this, its just great stuff!
