The menacing sound employed by Germany’s Everfest is highly eclectic and reminiscent of vintage Queensryche and Dokken yet adding the Everfest touch. “See me Rising” is a pounding tune in the vein of Edguy, with catchy hooks while still keeping that metal edge. Andy Sommer’s pipes are on the style of Bruce Dickinson and hitting the high notes of Geoff Tate. Wenck & Ritzmann the perennial dual guitarist shows the mastery and technique that is prevalent throughout each song.

“Something to Believe” has Everfest reaching for the stars with a killer tune that has dark moments with a brilliant chorus. “Breathe” is a tale of truth, that most men and women must over come in love-- a broken heart. As the music goes on the feeling it gives there is a rainbow on the horizon. Everfest has grown since their 2004 demo and I like the direction they are headed. The vocal power of Andy Sommer shines and the musicianship is quality and I wish these boys the best for the future. Pick this CD for some great melodic metal tunes.
