Images of Eden is a progressive metal band from USA with 3 albums issued to date, formed in 1998 by vocalist Gordon Tittsworth who is also the bassist and done some keybords arrangements aswell. This is their second album from 2006 released at Nightmare records named Sunlight of the spirit. Well, what we have here is solid prog metal, with some great vocal parts, the instrumental passages are more then ok, that means this album was a pleasent surprise for me. They remind me in places with Fates Warning,Trascending Mortality and with Mindwarp Chamber almost same sound and manner of compossing. I like the voice of Gordon Tittsworth , fiting ok in this kind of music, also he has a very clear tone of voice, I like a lot this kind of vocal arrangements. Some pieces stands as very strong: like title track divided in 3 parts, very well are the guitar parts also compose by the vocalist Gordon Tittsworth, and the last piece of the album, the longest Midnight's Tide , 11 min of great prog metal. To me is a good album, towards great in places, deserve 3 rounded to 3.5 for sure, would be much higher if they would use more keybords in the overall sound, the keybords are only sporadicalyy and are not at full intensity, anyway the short parts where the keybords are melted with guitars are good . Good album , good band, kind unnoticed to larger public.
