Evergrey – The Storm Within


This is mostly made of fine midpaced-to-fast rockers paired with some brisker tunes to show those nasty naysayers that these guys can still riff, all of it surrounding and being surrounded by the love-it-or-hate-it voice of Tom Englund, who, as per tradition, sounds in deep distress due to God knows what. Let it never be said that Evergrey are unable to elicit an emotional response from their listeners, for no other band can make me want to hug a 6’5 Swedish fellow, maybe buy him a coffee and tell him “everything’s gonna be ok, man”. Next time I’m at quaint, rainy Gothenburg, I’ll be sure to analyze the contents of their tap water to find out if it’s laced with prohibitive quantities of anti-depressants which induced a rebound effect on the entire populace around the mid-to-late 90’s, causing some of those folks to start moping uncontrollably for years on end. I may be murdered by In Flames for unveiling the secret of how they stayed afloat after Clayman, but truth should know no boundaries.
