Customer Review

on 19 March 2003
Firstly you have to buy this CD. It defines an new genre in metal currently occupied by the likes of ISIS and has set the pace for others to follow. Art Metal does not have a massive following at the moment but I strongly suspect this album will change that. The sheer powerful ambience this album creates is staggering and really draws you into the music. The sheer weight and deep sound of the guitars rival that of anything I've heard before. It may not be full of ripping solos and riffs but I promise you you'll be trying to play this on your own guitar (air or real) with the gain cranked well up.
Ok so you'll have to read the lyrics in the sleeve to follow them but trust me it's worth it. The lyrics are deep, dark and poetically moving. When delivered with the force and style of Johannes Persson the effect is awesome. Their first album had all the ingredients but The Beyond pulls it all together with apocolyptic strength. Tracks like The Watchtower, Circle & Deliverance progressively build up into such a controlled but agressive climax you won't know what hit you. Even if you're not a fan of this type of metal (I'm an "old skool" metal head for example) you must buy this CD to understand what this genre of Art Metal is all about. It's been in my CD player now since it came out and will stay there for a while! Definitely in my top 10 of ALL TIME!!!
