Eyefear: A World Full Of Grey
Power/Progressive Metal
Rating: 4.0/5.0

Australia's Eyefear has a simple formula: bring some hard-hitting power metal with intense vocals, crisp guitar work, and clever keyboards and then put it in a progressive metal wrapper. From start to finish this is what you get on 'A World Full Of Grey.' The opening chords of 'Searching For Forgiveness' falls like an acoustic hammer, and for the most part, you are pummelled until the end. Not that there aren't some softer moments on the album, 'Haunted Memories' is proof of that. But for the most part this is seriously heavy progressive and power metal. Unfortunately, this can result in a certain amount of monotony especially given Danny Cecati emotional and sometimes tortourous vocals. But, in the end, its the progressive edge that compels you to listen more carefully. You will find that such songs as 'Lost Within' and 'Breathe Again' are both creative in concept and substantial in performance.

I found 'A World Full Of Grey' interesting enough to give it several spins in a short period of time. However, I don't think this a good idea. Rather listen to only a few cuts at a time, or better, put the player on shuffle and listen carefully to several songs. Otherwise, I think you might find 'Grey' ordinary, when, in reality, it is quite good.

Eye Fear would appeal to fans of Symphony X, Fate's Warning and possibly Dream Theater. However, I would suggest you 'try before you buy,' by checking out their myspace site.
