That's one awesome song. Great energy. Sounds like great stuff to work out or go to run with. I'm not usually really a fan of growls or screams or whatever you want to call them, but it worked for me in Static Impulse and it works here too. Sounds like a continuation of that style, but I hope there some surprises there also.

Not really digging the sound of the mix/master. It's seems to be the similar as SI, but with more prominent bass. But the bass is masking the other instruments and lacks definition. Coupled with loud mastering this just sounds muddy and flat to me. Typical loudness war sound that makes also SI a bit hard for me to listen to.

I'm hoping that at least the new DT album will get a sound that breathes, has clarity and dynamics... but that's most likely just wishful thinking. That kind of sound you don't hear too often these days.

Anyhow really looking forward to hearing the rest of the songs.

I like Agony, specially James' voice as usually  Smiley don't like the beginning with the screams though..but after Matt telling me there are enough songs on the album without screams I'm looking forward to hear the other songs  Cheesy

Ahornsirup und Köttbullar - schmeckt ja wohl (9/10)

Er kann es einfach nicht lassen. Neben DREAM THEATER hat Kevin James LaBrie anscheinend noch genug Zeit und Muße für seine Solo-Scheiben, so auch anno 2013. Mit der gleichen Mannschaft wie auf "Static Impulse" (2010) ist unser kanadisches Goldkehlchen jetzt mit "Impermanent Resonance" am Start. Am wichtigsten ist bei diesem Unterfangen wohl Matt Guillory, der das Material maßgeblich (mit)komponiert hat und für Keyboards und die Shouts am Mikro zuständig ist. Zusammen mit Marco Sfogli an der Gitarre und Ray Riendeau am Bass ist das eine mittlerweile konstante Besetzung, die Laut James' weit mehr als eine Begleittruppe für den Solo-Künstler ist. Und dann ist da ja auch noch Wahnsinns-Drummer Peter Wildoer, der seit 15 Jahren in seiner Thrash/Melodic-Death-Band DARKANE beweist, was für ein technisch versierter Drummer er ist. DREAM THEATER-Fans werden ihn ansonsten ja noch von den Auditions kennen, in denen sich der Schwede bis in den engeren Kandidatenzirkel getrommelt hat.

Bleiben wir am besten gleich in Schweden, denn zum einen entstand "Impermanent Resonance" größtenteils unter der Fuchtel Jens Bogrens, der dem Album eine moderne, dennoch lebendige Produktion besorgt hat. Viel wichtiger und offensichtlicher ist allerdings die Schweden-Affinität, die man in jedem der zwölf Tracks hören kann. Wie auch bei den beiden Vorgänger-Alben trifft die oft sanfte, expressive Stimme des Kanadiers auf harte Instrumental-Unterbauten der Göteborg-Schule. Dass diese Mischung äußerst geschmackvoll sein kann, wissen wir also seit einer Weile. Insofern ist die musikalische Ausrichtung des neuen Albums eine Bestätigung der Stärken James LaBries, der selbstbewusst genug ist, diese Scheibe gut einen Monat vor dem allerorts erwarteten nächsten DREAM THEATER-Meisterwerk auf den Markt zu werfen.

DREAM THEATER ist übrigens ein gutes Stichwort, denn meine ersten Eindrücke, dass das Solomaterial gar nicht so weit vom Charakter der Prog-Institution entfernt ist, teilt der sympathische Frontmann. Während die Gesangslinien in hohen Registern stets die besten Stücke des Melodiekuchens herausschneiden, ackert sich die Band darunter durch vertrackte und technisch perfekt umgesetzte Instrumentalkunst. Von rhythmisch-proggy bis Keyboard-lastig-verträumt sind viele Stimmungen im Kaleidoskop und man scheut sich nicht vor ruhigen Momenten und Balladen. Viele Augenblicke winken gen Long Island und fangen die Atmosphäre ein, die jede Musik besitzt, wenn Mister LaBrie zu ihr singt. Das Rezept funktioniert auf zwölf Tracks und in 50 Minuten immerhin so gut, dass man damit den POWERMETAL.de-Soundcheck gewinnen und Geschmäcker quer durch die Bank bedienen kann.

Kurzum: auf seinem neuen Album bündelt JAMES LABRIE die Stärken seiner charakteristischen Stimme, hat nach wie vor eine tolle Band und liefert absolut standesgemäß einen Kracher von einem Album. Unter den vielen Ohrwürmern Highlights auszumachen, ist eine wirklich schwierige Aufgabe. Qualitätsverlust gibt es hier einfach nicht. Ein Kandidat für Heavy Rotation, der sich auch nach mehr als zehn Durchgängen kein Stück obsolet gemacht hat. Ihr wisst, was zu tun ist!

Anspieltipps: Undertow, I Got You, Destined To Burn, Amnesia, Back On The Ground

Well I've checked the samples and I must admit it's not my type of music. Totally don't get it, too much effects, keyborad's parts are just 100% pop, lyrics are like love, love and no balls. Sorry, love mullmuzzler 1&2 and Elements and half of Static, but I won't buy the new record.

cheers

Keep in mind the CD style is Gutenberg styled Metal. so there is more of a "pop" hooks, but its what is the style in europe.

It obviously not everyone's cup of tea, it is different, and refreshing for many of us.

There's a review of "Impermanent Resonance" in the new issue of "Metal Hammer" which is the biggest rock and metal print magazine here in Germany. Overall, the album gets a 6/7 rating and it says that the album is "impressive".
