Wuthering Heights - To Travel For Evermore

Year of Release: 2002
Label: Sensory
Catalog Number: SR3014
Format: CD
Total Time: 55:00:00

Beginning in the nineties and progressing into the current line up, which is now a serious force in the realm of symphonic speed metal, Wuthering Heights have made an impressive mark on the European rock scene. They have decided To Travel For Evermore on their most recent release to reach that audience and beyond. The title is interesting in that their music does travel from one world to another all within one song, although the album title has nothing at all to do with their sound or musical style.

Think of a good science fiction/action novel with a killer soundtrack and you have a quick summation of this group's big sound. One close listen to the epic four-part drama "A Summer's Confession" and you will fully realize this band's breathtaking capability as skillful musicians and storytellers. You get the best of both worlds with a mystical and magical storyline set to fantastical music to drive it home.

This album will be a notable addition to your collection of progressive rock movers and shakers. The sound quality is adequate although it could use some modifications concerning clarity with the final mix down and mastering; other than that, all their ducks are in row. I know in my heart of hearts that next time out that will happen for the group. Only the best prog-rock will leave a lasting impression and leave you in dire need of more of the same, you can count on that happening with this album. Very soon, this band will be ringing in your ears and consciousness on regular basis.
