Well the wait will be shortly over. After reviewing EUMERIA’s two track release back in 2009 which by the way received 5 STARS. EUMERIA is set to release their debut CD June 28, 2011. Mark that date and pre-order the CD because it’s explosive!

 

Listening to the CD, over an over I really don’t think EUMERIA can be stopped. The phenomenal musicianship and vocals are amazing on this release... “Rebel Mind” is outstanding! The first track “Legion” opens with rolling drums by Kevin Bartlett blasting into an abyss. I have to emphasize there are some bands that are establish that can never match or compare to EUMERIA. The opening track is simply put phenomenal. Jonny Tatum is a demigod and his voice is heavenly and takes it to another level. Guitar wise Reece Fullwood blows me away like no other guitarist… powerful!

 

The mixture of transcending keys by Bobby Williamson and the blend of unbelievable talent in EUMERIA should shoot these boys to the top. If a major label doesn’t grab these guys immediately it will be their loss because I am expecting huge things from this band. You can put EUMERIA in the class of SYMPHONY X and DREAM THEATER they are that good, I’m not shitting you!

 

The title track “Rebel Mind” is mindboggling how unparalleled it is to any high profiled songs. EUMERIA extend their self in writing and the musical path they follow. If you think there is any comparison vocally to Jonny Tatum’s range I missed it, he had to be sent from the heavens. Check out “Father” I like all the tracks on “Rebel Mind” but this one’s chilling. Tatum is unbelievable and the song sends you in a trance like meditation mode.

 

 

Another top track is “The Keys” the guitar tapping and swift scrolling guitar work hooks up with Williamson’s keys and makes heavy explosions with massive chops. Check out the high notes by Tatum. Damn!!!!!

 

The CD ends with another blissful track “Secret Places” that is memorizing, just an unbelievable release by EUMERIA. “Rebel Minds” is an adventure of a musical dream through time. Musically OUTSTANDING, musicianship phenomenal, production amazing. EUMERIA Rebel Mind” is the best progressive metal release I’ve heard.
