EVERGREY picture
Evergrey is a metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. The band was founded in 1996 and released its debut album The Dark Discovery in 1998. The Band early works fall under the progressive metal genre, but more recent works have taken on a more modern melodic metal sound. Evergrey's lyrics have always been of the darker sort. While The Dark Discovery dealt with a variety of ideas, later albums have been concept albums, dealing with issues like self-reformation (Recreation Day), paranoia, alien abduction (In Search of Truth), child abuse, and religion (The Inner Circle).

Recreation Day is an album that covers many issues, ranging from death and mourning to general fear and sorrow, all of which contribute to a greater concept of re-creation of oneself. These ideas are explored from many different points of view, such as someone contemplating suicide ("As I Lie Here Bleeding"), mourners after a funeral ("I'm

EVERGREY The Inner Circle

Album · 2004 · Progressive Metal

martindavey87
Put your sad faces on, this is not going to be pretty. Evergrey's 2004 release, 'The Inner Circle', is a concept album that focuses on themes of religion and abuse. Sounds pleasant, right? It's a very dark and gritty record, that pulls no punches as it tackles some deeply disturbing subject matter.

One of the things I like about Evergrey is their ability to be insanely heavy and brutal, yet maintain a sense of melody in their music. A heavy focus on strings gives this album a gothic feel, which suits the dark nature of the lyrics. And the production packs one hell of a punch, giving the heavy songs the balls they need and the softer songs the essence of melancholy and dreariness.

I told you, this won't be pretty.

The musicianship is top notch here, disregarding the common misconception that every progressive metal album involves endless solos and self-indulgent musical passages, 'The Inner Circle' focuses on atmosphere, with all guitar and keyboard solos being suited to the music perfectly. This is evident in songs such as 'Ambassador', 'The Essence of Conviction', 'A Touch of Blessing' and 'Harmless Wishes'.

This is arguably one of the most depressive albums you'll ever hear, but for all that gloom and doom, there is also some compelling, well-written music, which makes 'The Inner Circle' a worthy addition to your metal collection.

Now, cheer up, mate!

'Recreation Day' served as my introduction to Evergrey. I can't remember anything in particular that prompted me to check them out, it was an album I bought completely on a whim. But I'm glad I did, because it's a fantastic release that perfectly blends brutally heavy riffs with melodic singing, throw in some keyboards and prog-inspired song structures and you've got yourself some damn good metal.

With a much clearer production and a more progressive feel than previous releases, 'Recreation Day' is one of Evergrey's finest works, with consistently strong songwriting that doesn't stray too far from the bands firmly established, gloomy style. The interplay between crushingly heavy guitar riffs and crystalline keyboard melodies is incredible, and makes me regret all those days in my youth when I believed there was no place for keyboards in metal (let's be honest, we've all been there).

An absolute onslaught of intense progressive metal that doesn't let up for one second, the album kicks off relentlessly with 'The Great Deceiver', and follows up with the likes of 'As I Lie Here Bleeding', 'Blinded', 'End of Your Days' and the title track, each song a barrage of riffs that will have your neck aching in the morning. There's a few ballads in here too, most notably 'I'm Sorry', but the lyrical content and the sincerity in the vocals means that this is no safe haven from the underlying sense of dread and uneasiness surrounding each song.

'Recreation Day' is a dark, grim and merciless album from start to finish. There's nothing pretty about it, and that's pretty much why I love it.

EVERGREY The Storm Within

UMUR
"The Storm Within" is the 10th full-length studio album by Swedish power metal act Evergrey. The album was released through AFM Records in September 2016. It´s the successor to "Hymns for the Broken" from 2014, which by many is considered a comeback album of sorts, because lead vocalist/guitarist Tom Englund reunited with drummer Jonas Ekdahl and guitarist Henrik Danhage after a lineup turmoil in 2010 meant that those two left Evergrey. Apparently the marriage is happy again though because "The Storm Within" features the exact same lineup who recorded "Hymns for the Broken (2014)".

Stylistically the music on "The Storm Within" pretty much continues the anthemic power metal with a melancholic atmosphere, that Evergrey also played on the predecessor. In fact this is unmistakably the sound of Evergrey with Tom Englund´s distinct sounding vocals in front, melodic and occasional thrash metal oriented guitar playing (the thrash metal riffs are more an influence rather than a dominant element of the band´s sound), supporting keyboards for texture, and a powerful and tight playing rhythm section. The quality of the performances is high throughout. Here I´ll have to give a special mention to Henrik Danhage´s guitar solos. He is a brilliant guitar player, and his solos on this album definitely help elevate the music to higher levels.

The songwriting is generally top notch professional too. Tracks like "Distance", "In Orbit" (featuring Floor Jansen of Nightwish), and the atmospheric title track (which reminds me quite a lot of Anathema) are among the highlights, but "The Storm Within" is overall a pretty consistent quality release. The only track which doesn´t quite reach the high quality of the rest of the material is the saccarine power ballad "The Paradox of the Flame" (a duet power balled with Tom´s wife Carina Englund). When Evergrey touch that territory is when they are worst.

"The Storm Within" features a powerful, detailed, and well sounding production, which suits the music perfectly and upon conclusion it´s another quality release by Evergrey. There´s not much development of sound, and I could have done with a few more tempo changes as most of the tracks don´t leave mid-pace, but on a whole it´s still a very professional and well sounding release, and a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating isn´t all wrong.

EVERGREY The Inner Circle

After the slightly shaky Recreation Day, Evergrey firmed up their sound again with The Inner Circle. Once again it's a concept album, this time based around the thin line between conventional religious practices and cultish manipulation, and how sects which theologically try to wall off their followers from the outside world can create an environment in which all sorts of abuses can take place.

The idea offers some obvious thematic connections with In Search of Truth - in the sense that both concepts revolve around conspiracies that cover for abusive actions, although where the former is fantastical and unlikely, the latter is unfortunately an all too real phenomenon, as illustrated by incidents like the conviction of Warren Jeffs. Likewise, whereas In Search of Truth had spoken word bits from the point of view of an abductee, here we have various spoken word extracts from the sermons of various religious leaders, some of whom seem overcome with grief.

So, structurally then what we are dealing with is an album which feels a lot like a sequel to In Search of Truth, and musically we're in the same general area too. On the whole, I think it's no embarrassment to its predecessor, and is certainly a better followup than Recreation Day, but I don't think it's quite on the same level - say, about a half-star difference between them.

Warthur
Evergrey's Recreation Day isn't a bad album, as such - it finds the band turning out competent progressive metal in a similar vein to the preceding In Search of Truth. However, In Search of Truth enjoyed the benefit of a much stronger central concept than the rather vague ideas about personal improvement and self-exploration that underpin proceedings here, and the comparative lack of a strong focus seems to be reflected in the compositions here as much as it is in the lyrics. The cheesier parts of Evergrey's sound get a bit more airtime, and some songs end up drifting into repetitive sections as though the band aren't sure how to develop their ideas further.

It's an enjoyable enough listen, but it's very forgettable, and it lacks the distinct flavour and atmosphere which gave In Search of Truth the edge.

It is the wrong place as posts like that often get missed. I don't disagree with you though but the setup you see is the only compromise the collabs of the site could reach after the band was moved out of power metal.
