Once more, please !!!

Yes, "Soul temptation" is a great power. Many influences builded Brainstorm's last album.

Guitars are soo powerfull, it's sure... They have the trick to make the energy growing and growing again, all along this piece. Andy B. Franck is the new singer and what a great one too. He can sing quietly, with strengh, but also with a low voice printed in the rocks or a higher level without any difficulties.

Sometimes I feel no originality or sometimes a little bit. I think Brainstorm has to find the real identity for the futur ; I can here to much influences in the music ( Evergrey, Symphony X, Nevermore...).

But in the other way, it's well done, great musicians and great ideas (the Oriental travelling in "Trinity of lust", 3 songs very impressives).

It's cool to have it somewhere in the ears !!! I like it very much...

The quite heavy rotation of Brainstorm's video 'Highs Without Lows' caught my attention. To finally buy this album it only took the additional dvd in the 2 disc digipack to be sold at the price of a regular album. What a good buy, I didn't expect so much, but I was rewarded with quite some more:

An interesting cover art was what made me see 'Soul Temptation', Brainstorm's 2003 album in the record store and I couldn't wait to put it into my cd player. What came out was 'Highs Without Lows' as the opener, a great song and luckily not the only one. Going further through this genre mix of power and progressive metal I found 'The Leading', 'Shiva's Tears', 'Dying Outside' and Rising' some pearls of this mix of style. 'Shiva's Tears' and 'Rising' are the proof enough that singer Andy B. Frack has a powerful and mighty voice reaching from enormous depth to incredible hight, the ladder I wouldn't have expected, but it can be heard very well on 'Fornever'
