ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Book Of Reflections is Lion Music's new all-star metal project, with neoclassical and progressive influences, featuring heavyweight axemen Lars Eric Mattsson and Rusty Cooley (and even a guitar solo by Hubie Meisel). The CD also features a number of keyboard solos by the fleet-fingered Vitalij Kuprij, and a team of lead singers, including Andy Engberg, Micke Holm, Meisel and Torgny Stjarnfelt. The album was recorded between April and December 2003 in Finland, Germany, Sweden and the United States. All the songs were written by Lars Eric Mattsson with some additional lyrics from Conny Welen. Both the Japanese and European versions of this album contain an exclusive bonus track, "Blood From A Stone". Book Of Reflections also contains the new Lars Eric Mattsson instrumental title track.

Great neo-classical/power metal release with a whose who of the genre.Kept me interested throughout with mostly fast paced songs and very melodic as well.If you are into this type of music,than it\'s a nobrainer to purchase!

Book Of Reflections - s/t
Lasse has surprised me with no one talent to present. It was foreseeably obvious that his next project (next to Condition Red for instance) would be something unusual. It's also characteristic for him that he always tries to cooperate with a compadre - Eddie Sledgehammer on drums. Is it necessary to introduce so popular figures in the progressive music world like Vitalij Kuprij (keys) and Rusty Cooley (guitars)? I hope it is needless. Maybe the names of invited vocalists are more mysterious? Hubi Meisel should make you think of a progmetal act Dreamscape and his solo activity. Andy Engberg is a court singer of Lion's Share and sometimes cooperates with Section A. Mikael Holm is vocalist of Swedish band - Winterlong, however Torgny Stjärnfelt can be associated with aforementioned Condition Red.

My reviewe can be started and finished by a statement that Book Of Reflections' music is melodic power metal, but some Readers will be able to feel mislead. That is so, because contemporary power metal is more associated with symphonic metal bands from Europe than with so-called US power metal from the eighties. Explosion of many mediocre groups playing European kind of that genre can stir various (often negative) emotions. It can be caused by a low artisitic level of mentioned bands. As I usually say, Book Of Reflections is other fairytale. The debut, as regards arrangements, is excellent. The music composed by Lasse is very fast, but no so frequent decelerations are perfect moments for taking a deep breath. Guitar "sculptures" and duels between Mr. Mattsson and Rusty Cooley, performed against a choral singings' background, can't be imperceptibly passed by practised listeners of that style.

I needn't write more about the singers, because Lasse simply selected most proper people behind the mike. No one must be a great expert to guess that singing for so brilliantly composed music is a true pleasure for vocalists. It's hard to record something kitschy or deteriorate good ideas with so outstanding musicians. I guarantee that Boof Of Reflections' debut will appeal to the fans of neoclassical power metal albums by Angra, on which Andre Matos still sang.
