4 stars Europe meets Dream Theater

Seventh Wonder is a swedish prog metal band with 3 albums in their pockets 'till now. Waiting in the wings is their second album from 2006 and was a big surprise for me, in a good way. Very talented band with a lot to offer in prog metal zone. As I said I was impressed by this release, not because they are original but because they play very tight and with great ideas. Taken their influences from the '80's hard and heavy zone like Europe or Iron Maiden, specialy the vocal parts and on some arrangements and aswell from the prog metal gods from the '90's Dream Theater= the combination is Seventh Wonder. The music is prog metal with very fine passages between the guitar of Johan Liefvendahl and the keys of Andreas Söderin, they are the cherry on the cake here. Also the voice of Tommy Karevik is brilliant , remind me the moments when Europe made history in the '80's, catchy and easy to remember,very strong vocal range , fits like a glove in this kind of music. The best pieces are all , not a wak moments, but with a plus on : the opening track Star Of David, the longest one from here Waiting In The Wings , excellent musicianship on this one, showing that they are meaning every note from this piece and Walking Tall. So a great band that desearve a wider recognition. Among the best in this field in prog metal. 4 star easy to give on this second album. Recommended, similar bands, Dreamscape, Dream Theater and even some bands from the '80's like Europe.
