Background
Since 1987, when he released his first EP, Lars Eric Mattsson has been a very busy man. In various forms he has released a number of albums over the past thirteen years and has become a respected guitarist. 'Another Dimension' is yet another chapter in the long career of Mr Mattsson. Adding the vocals to Lars' neo-classical hard rock is Baltimoore frontman Bjorn Lodin. There are also guest appearances from Rob Johnson (Magnitude 9) and French guitar wizard Patrick Rondat.


The Songs
The fourteen tracks on offer take us on a ride through neo-classical rock/metal territory. Lars does have quite a different sound that does take a bit of getting used to. The inclusion of Bjorn Lodin on vocals is also interesting as his throaty vocal style isn't the usual high-range, operatic style that is usually associated with neo-classical albums. Although I enjoyed Baltimoore's 'Original Sin', I'm not so sure about the combination of Lars' music and Bjorn's vocals. The album also has a stripped back and rawer production with backing vocals being less prominent.


In Summary
Being a fan of the neo-classical genre of rock/metal, 'Another Dimension' did leave me feeling flat and unexcited. Although it is a solid album, I have to say that this album will appeal mostly to the converted.
