Secret Sphere - A Time Never Come
"A Time Never Come" is SECRET SPHERE's second release, and sounds quite confidently like a cross between QUEENSRYCHE, HELLOWEEN, MORGANA LEFAY and a symphony orchestra. With heaps of production, castle bound keyboards, and vocals that would kick some life into YNGWIE's band. Seems to me like these Italian Metal-bands are getting better and better with each release.

In addition to that, the band is not afraid to make tall work of their softer tunes, everything benefiting from nice attention to detail that moves along the lines of those slow but heavy FATES WARNING-songs of the first three albums.

One small complaint once again is the broken English, "A Time Never Come"? What's up with that title, my ten year old sister would even know that is wrong (also see "The Mistery Of Love"). But besides that very small detail (it bothers me more than most) this is an ass-kicking Italo-Metal-release. Basically high quality Prog Metal worthy of your attention.
