THE FULLNESS OF TIME
Redemption’s prog metal precision shines across the quintet’s eight-track entity, as a longtime vocal fixture in the scene lends his chops to the fray. Ray Alder, singer best known for his work in the seminal group Fates Warning, puts his sturdy voice to work against the band’s grandiose guitar and keyboard infrastructure on tracks like the 16-minute “Sapphire”, showcasing just how this type of music needs to sound. Tastefully extending to music’s far reaches without being overwrought, Redemption keeps the virtuoso antics purposeful and serve these songs with musical muscle and an eye on cohesive songwriting. If you’re a fan of progressive metal, Redemption wholeheartedly delivers a compelling collection.
