||Greece is the home of the mighty Innerwish.
“Silent Faces” is the band’s latest effort and it
shows the bands progression from their previous album. Everything
has been taken another step up, if not a couple steps forward. Innerwish
reminds me a little of Riot Queensryche and Jag Panzer. The musicianship
pretty tight and they aren’t afraid to do solos. They even use
keyboards. And when they do use them, they don’t over do it.
The vocals fit with the music perfectly. Many metal bands that try
to do what these guys do and fail when they get a singer that can’t
carry a tune. Innerwish doesn’t have a Bruce Dickinson, but
Babis can definitely hold his own. The band can be best explained
as very well written melodic power metal with catchy riffs that get
you right into the songs; some parts even seem thrashy. There were
a handful of tracks that grabbed my attention and they include “Dancer
Of The Storm,” “If I Could Turn Back Time,” “Silent
Faces,” and “Realms Of Tomorrow.” “Silent
Faces” will definitely get the attention of some power metal
fans, if you are one, check these guys out.
