Get ready to raise those devil horns while being transported into another world by Saarbrücken Rockers, Tomorrow’s Eve, who are back with their fifth studio album. We snagged an early copy of the upcoming release of ‘Mirror Of Creation III – Project Ikaros’, and here’s the lowdown on what we took away from what’s to come from one of the Progressive Metal vet’s best albums yet.
Kicking off with the first track, “Welcome to the show”, the guys hit the ground running full-speed over heavy riffs and a theatrical style that mimics the likes of Dream Theater which swiftly turns into powerful vocals from Martin LeMar which enhance the listening experience. The second track, “Morpheus”, instrumentally jumps right into the deep end over dark and haunting energy that lyrically takes the plunge into a balance of a metaphorical and mythological tale of love and lust. “Bread and Circuses” is the third track that blazes right into brutal riffs and a guitar solo that captivates a seasoned rockers’ heart while lyrically trampling over societal beliefs that are crippling and subconsciously separating the modern-age. The fourth track, “Imago”, takes the album for a turn into an instrumental slow-burn as the guys lyrically dissect a matter of integrity that stands at the forefront of their minds. “The System” is the fifth track that adds in technical elements that showcase the dynamic approach that the rockers took when creating the album while lyrically tackling the sorrow that comes with succumbing to the corporate system and failing to cultivate the courage to live out of the ultimate life of your desire. The sixth track, “Law and Order”, is a work of musical balance that begins by instrumentally easing listeners into a state of serenity which sharply leads into a dose of speed-metal that again drops back into a slower, mollifying track.
“Dream within a dream” is the seventh track that initially creates the feeling that comes with watching a dark, cinematic thriller and turns into a hefty dose of lyrical enlightenment that reminds listeners of their own capability to become and live their lives as the highest version of themselves. The eighth track, “Terminal”, is an album highlight that is abounding with intensity evoking a feeling of both frenzy and inspiration while lyrics speak of the reality and benefit of being able to see beyond one’s own perspective. “Inner Sanctum” is the ninth track that lyrically speaks of being able to go within to find clarity about personal decisions without the dogma that tends to be laced within outside influence. Closing out with “Gods Among Each Other”, Tomorrow’s Eve begin by slowly building instrumental anticipation over a high-quality ending to a metal masterpiece that lyrically exemplifies the raw human experience.
Tomorrow’s Eve have once again proven that they have what it takes to make memories for massive crowds around the world over a immediately captivating release. If you’re a fan of fellow bands such as Dream Theater, Megadeth, Slayer and Iron Maiden, then keep an eye on and support the ride ahead for Tomorrow’s Eve.
