Byron Nemeth puts his guitar through the gears, and he can compose a theme (“Engines of Thunder”) that allows him to prove it. His attack shifts from prog-rock to a more hard-rock aggression, though, on “A New Freedom” with a lead vocal to match, a familiar high-test metal-shriek that’s born to dig into histrionic lyrics. We’re hearing an Iron Maiden influence there and on “Everybody Knows” too, with expert syncopation and a squealing guitar part that’s memorable. An accomplished musician, Nemeth shows himself to again be a fluid player in the classic metal realm and he’s a composer whose work, proficiently rendered, shows its heritage from the greats who’ve come before.
