ReSolve – Wayward Sanctuary
(Layered Reality Productions – 2015)
A Netherlands based Progressive Rock and Metal all in one with female fronted vocals (courtesy of Radina Dimcheva).
The line-up is completed by Fabian Blomsma (Keyboards); Lennert Kemper (Guitars); Justus Ebel (Bass) and Gregory Van Der Hoeven (Drums). They also happen to be a band who are also very symphonic and heavy at some points and at others tranquil and lovely. and at other times elsewhere it is brutal.
Highlights on this here platter recorded in Amersfoort include the opening 'Pitch Black Eyes' and the closing duet with the cooking monster called 'December' with other alive pieces in the middle such as 'Still Breathing'.
Ram it up loud!
