Rock, Rob (Rage Of Creation) - 2003 Eyes Of Eternity


ROB ROCKS RAGE OF CREATION - EYES OF ETERNITY (2003, MASSACRE RECORDS)
Rob Rock - vocals
Roy Z - guitars, bass, keyboards
Reynold 'Butch' Carlson - drums


Background
The melodic metal legend blew everyone away with his first solo album 'Rage Of Creation', an absolute masterpiece, in 2000. He's teamed up again with Roy Z to write and produce his latest album 'Eyes Of Eternity', which is another extension of Rob Rock's amazing ability. Rage of Creation was such a triumph it was going to be a hard task to eclipse that album. Though Rob may not have surpassed his previous effort, he has certainly matched it. On 'Rage of Creation' there were a couple of very heavy metal moments. 'Eyes of Eternity' still has plenty of beefiness, there's heaps of melody and a stronger old school metal feel in comparison to the somewhat harder metal of ROC. One thing is for certain' Rob can still sing with the best of them. He seems to get better and better, which is great for us fans. His live band is now his recording band as well, and they are tight as hell.

The Songs
They have to be if you want to keep up with the music that Rob Rock wants to belt out. There is an incredible 12 minute shred fest on 'The Hour Of Dawn'. Up until the 7th minute it is already a great, grandiose melodic metal anthem. From then on in you get some of the best melodic metal soloing you are likely to ever hear in one place at the same time. A track destined to go down in history I'm sure. 'The Hour of Dawn' is actually the last track, and the tracks that go before are all up to the usual Rob Rock standard of excellence. Opener 'Rock The Earth' brings thoughts of Impelliteri. 'Stranglehold' has an old Axel Rudi Pell sounding riff and the addition of Mistheria's keyboards fill out the sound nicely. Fellow Floridian's Kamelot would have been happy to have recorded 'The Everlasting'. The vocals on 'Conqueror's Hymn' are fantastic, accentuated by an extremely aggressive riff and very atmospheric choir chanting. It's lucky for Tony Martin that Rob didn't audition for Black Sabbath if 'Fields of Fire' is anything to go by, bringing back those fond 'Headless Cross' days. I'm sure Mr. Iommi would have been smitten with the solo as well.

In Summary
On his new album, Rob Rock strengthens the belief that he is one of the very best metal singers to have graced the genre. He has surrounded himself with a very strong group of musicians who, together, have delivered a masterpiece once again.
