Mattson, Lars Eric - 2001 Eternity

Lars Eric Mattsson - guitars, bass, keyboards
Bjorn Lodin - vocals
Eddie Sledgehammer - drums

On the original version appeared:
Tosse Janson - vocals
Goran Stenius - bass
Tony Mattsson - drums
Orjan Sjostrom - keyboards and backing vocals
Lars Eric Mattsson - guitars, bass and keyboards

There aren't many musicians, let alone guitarists, who have released the amount of albums that Lars Eric Mattsson has managed to churn out over the past thirteen years. Obviously a very hard working man, he has continually kept releasing product, either under his own name or with Vision, Condition Red and Astral Groove. For his latest release we actually go back to where it all began. Technically 'Eternity' is Lars' debut album, but due to the poor sound quality of the original the album has been completely re-recorded for the purpose of this release, resulting in an updated sound and superb production job.

The Songs
Presently Lars is regarded mainly as a neo-classical-come-progressive rock/metal guitarist. 'Eternity' does have its neo-classical/progressive moments, but for the most part it is a fairly straight forward European hard rock album. On Lars' latter albums I've often found the changes in the song structures a little off putting, mainly because I don't care much for overly progressive rock/metal. Although there are a few moments like those just mentioned, I've enjoyed the less complicated approach on 'Eternity'. There are a couple of top notch rockers in 'Break Your Chains', 'Let It Rock' and 'Love Is The Answer'. The instrumental 'Tales Untold' is also a very memorable track. Where you find Lars Eric Mattsson you usually find Bjorn Lodin. Lodin re-recorded the vocals which had previously been handled by Tosse Jansson on the original. Whether or not it is an improvement I cannot say but I do feel that Lodin fits more snuggly into this material than the other albums he has recorded with Mattsson.

In Summary
Although I haven't been too fussed with what I've previously heard from Lars Eric Mattsson, I have to acknowledge that 'Eternity' is a good Euro-style heavy rock album that bases its foundations on strong song writing and a modern production job.
