Are the tears on the face of god due to the poor music on Eversin’s second album, or do they have another reason? Well, the album looks quite exciting when looking at its cover and logotype but we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, so I sat out to listen to the italian band’s second album. An album described as the sound of war and things similar to that, I saw some comparison to early Fates Warning as well which would allude towards something exciting perhaps. It all starts with some glory to then end up under the ocean before it ends.

Musically it starts with what I think is a music box, possibly a wind-up one that plays a little tune for the children to like. Perhaps dirty children in the ruins of warfare, because after this intro things become nasty and aggressive. We are dealing with a slightly progressive thrash metal style that is also infused with power metal elements, so it is aggressive and progressive yet quite melodic. The singer is not very good I would say, more a distraction from quality of the album rather than anything else. The production is okay but not really up there with most of the music being released today, there is something to work with in this department. Eight and forty five is the tracks and playing time for those who wonder and overall I would say that they do sound somewhat different.

Unfortunately it is not different in a good way, I think combining thrash and power metal with a progressive twist is a recipe for disaster and this album damn near is one of those, but the music box in the beginning is a great touch that builds so much expectation for me. After that nothing really happens and the singer is a real pain to listen to which makes this album not the one I would pick in case I should pick one to listen to. The album is decent in most parts though, but it just does not reach a point where it becomes interesting and ends up being an album that is somewhat below average all the way through.

Not an album that I would recommend as it does not appeal to me at all, it offers nothing I want to hear which is why I cannot approve it. I don’t know which fans would have the possibility to like this as it feels like something in between everything and that might be a problem for them. Not as bad as tears will flow down my face but surely Eversin needs a rethink of their music and they need it before they make another sad album that doesn’t really get anywhere.
