METAL FROM THE ROCK
Rob Rock - Eyes of Eternity
By Metal From The Rock
Well, well, what do we have here? A great album! Can anyone say awesome? With this release, who couldn't? Rob Rock has really out-done himself this time! The songwriting is top-notch and there is good rockin to be had by all!
It would seem that these guys are living up to their reputation as hot players! After several listens, this album gets better and better and the hooks begin to attach their tentacles to your ears. This album rocks and keeps on rocking. The melodic power sound of Rob Rock and the guitar sounds are full, hot and heavy! Rob Rock has once again, lived up to his name!
Every song on here is brilliant, so I'll comment on some of my favorite tracks in this CD:
It starts off with the fast rockin' "Rock The Earth," an excellent rocker that would make a powerful concert opener. The band comes together and really shines in "Stranglehold," a heavy rocker with a powerful tune. "Rage Of Creation" is one of the tallest standout cuts, with its melodic guitar blast which gives the screaming voice of Rob Rock the support it deserve. If there was only one song to pick as the hit, it would have to be "Eyes Of Eternity," which has the best melodic tune and the best vocal tones on the album. "Fields Of Fire" rocks with authority (man, i love this song!), the chorus and the hard melodic tune a la the song "Eagle" from the first Rob Rock album. "The Everlasting" is a hot tune and full of passion . . . this song gives a lot of hope and the lyrics would surely give you an idea on Rob's conviction about faith.
Another extraordinary element to this release is the track "The Hour Of Dawn" which features some of the world's top power metal guitarists in the heavy metal scene.
What more can I say? Go get this one and feast!
