Tino Hevia reveals the new band Reveal and the debut album Timeline, an album that looks very much like a power metal album both judging the artwork and the logo. And it sounds very much like a power metal album too, and by that I mean that it kind of sounds like any power metal album, not just a new unique album in the power metal genre but more of a rather typical power metal album – just listen to the opening self titled track and you will understand what I mean. But it is a simple enough album to like and it is catchy with strong choruses and melodies, easy to take to and easy to like is a short description of this album. I think that fans of the power metal genre should have a closer look, they will enjoy this album.

Main man Tony Hevia found Swedish youtube-singer Rob Lundgren and then filled the band with acclaimed and experienced Spanish musicians and some guests from Rage, Blind Guardian and Primal Fear. So it is a band with plenty of experience, a band where the members know what they are doing in terms of music and especially the power metal music. And perhaps that is the reason for their album being a fairly typical power metal album, the experience of the band members combined makes it a well made but quite standardised power metal album.

The self titled opener is a great power metal track, perfectly made to format a catchy and melodic power metal track. It is a good tone setter for the album and it is followed by good tracks through to the end. I also think that the album title track called Timeline is a very strong track as well – strange thing is that the best tracks of the album are rather typical power metal tracks and had all album been like them it probably would have been a tad boring, now it is a bit more varied although there are no surprises to be heard.

So it may not be the most exciting, unique or wonderful album I have ever heard. Fans of the power metal genre will most likely enjoy this album; I think that they should have a closer look at it. It is a catchy a fairly enjoyable album where I think the band reveals that they have some great potential but they need to find something of their own voice. This album is a good choice for the power metal fanatic.
