Sometime in 1997 a handful of bored Norwegian metalheads were drinking beer at the local pub. Someone around the table came up with the idea to form a band. They were all playing an instrument and hade the same musical preferences, so why not? What started out as bored musicians killing time, soon developed to something a lot more serious during the next 2 years. And somehow during this time they stumbled upon something great; their own sound!

By the end of 1999 they felt their songs were strong enough for a professional level, and in January 2000 they recorded their first demo, entitled "Soul Reaper", containing three songs. (Torn Apart, As the Morning Rise and Soul Reaper) The demo received very good reviews from both record labels and magazines.

The demo caught the attention of the German Axel Thubeuville of Shark Records who signed the band, and the debut

The last time you heard of this band is probably in 2004 when they released 'Machines of Mental Design', and after 7 years of silence, they're back with 'A Beautiful Atrocity', and damn me if this one ain't a strong come back, in love with this after only one single spin. Probably you'll be curious what's inside like a virgin boy peeking a hole to see a hot lady showering up, a hint for you that a lot of influences from many metal genres bounded together such as progressive, European power metal, and classic heavy metal. Melodic metal with a decent prog twist might be a good summary of their core engine.

"Perverse Perfection" started in a midtempo fashion and explosive riffs before they're building up the tempo and packed it with a great combo of melodic and prog metal. The solos are mindblowing and definitely a great track to start. "God V2.0", a lousy title but a very strong track. Traditional metal style, awesome chorus with blistering drummings. The guitarworks are monster, another personal fave. "Monster" is a good Rhapsody of Fire-influenced track but "Mind Divided", "Sleep Eternal", and "Only In A Dream" are examples of their boring mode.

Despite "The Man" which is a confusing bluesy feel track for metal fan but still a good one for me, the rest are excellent tracks. "Altered In Red" is a superb melodic metal tune and that also goes for "Dreamworld Messiah" which has a trace of Iron Maiden influence on it. "Heart of Darkness" and "I Sinner" are both spectacular and "Tide of Time" reminds me a lot of Edguy's "Hellfire Club" era and definitely another winner from the band.

Bernt Fjellstad has a great range of vocal, the production is also great, and everything you need from a wonderful prog/melodic metal thing is here. Influences are sure come from those classic giants such as Helloween, Symphony X, Stratovarius, and Edguy, and many songs are in 3-5 minutes range so it's pretty much accessible to most casual fans. A great one from Norway that's right up my alley, not very original and some tracks are passable, but kudos on the excellent work!
