4.0 out of 5 stars Yngvie Malmsteens Rising Force revisited, 1 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Inner Circle of Reality (Audio CD)
Musicians:I discoverd this album through Bass Player, Jonas Reingold, Whom I've met on numerous occasions with one of the bands he's in(The Flowerkings). Really funny guy.(He still owes me a pack of cigarettes)
One of his own projects is called Karmakanic. Jonas is an amazing bass player and very versatile as you can hear on the Karmakanic albums.I first heard Richard Andersson (the centerman and keyboard player of Time Requiem) on the Karmakanic albums where he plays on a couple of tracks. If you remember Jens Johansson of Y. Malmsteens Rising Force, think of Richard as "Jens: The Next Generation". He has clearly been influenced by Jens and has perfected Jens's Soloing techniques even further.
Zoltan Csorsz, the drummer also played with the flowerkings and still is part of Karmakanic and one Hell of a drummer who plays very tight and snappy. One of the best drummers I've ever seen live.
Magnus Nilsson,the guitarist, I can't comment on really as I've never heard him before, but he's certainly capable, The guitars sound bit clean and some what tame, but this has probably more to do with the fact the keyboards get priority over the others. Same can be said about singer Apollo, who's voice reminds me a lot of Jeff Scott Soto, who appeared on Y. Malmsteens first two albums. He's difficult to understand and the vocals seem to be a bit in the background. Keyboards take charge again.

The Album: Well if you've read the above, you would probably guess that the album sounds a bit Malmsteenish and you'd be right. The typically classical music inspired melodies, just like Yngwie makes(d) them. Solos a la Jens and the vocals a la Jeff. Is this bad ? No, far from it ... it will make fans of this genre very happy to find there are still people out there making this type of music. I know I was.Fast and snappy rythms lie "Demon driver" and typical melodies a la "Motherless child" and so on. Great album.
