Onward - Evermoving
Hey, I know that singer! Indeed, Michael Grant, who had been featured on the debut-album of Colombian Power Metal-outfit LEGEND MAKER some time back... Good omen, eh?

OK, ONWARD are an American quartet, which has set out to deliver a mixture out of American and European Power Metal, taking the riffing of the first and the bombastic melodies of the latter, so the info.

Well, I have listened to "Evermoving" for a few times now, but even though I have no footholds, where to fit in some criticism, there's nothing that has really stuck to my memory. ONWARD offer some varied Power Metal, which indeed fits the description, especially in the choruses you'll get more melodies than with most American bands, while the dry and crispy riffing still is somewhat alien to Europeans, why ever.

Still I could not say, if the experiment has been successful or a failure, because this album leaves me with a big question mark rotating above my head...

Even though I might very well misunderstand a milestone, I'll rate "Evermoving" with some careful
