In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

Dreamscape - 2004 End Of Silence


DREAMSCAPE - END OF SILENCE (2004, MASSACRE RECORDS)
Roland Stoll - vocals
Wolfgang Kerinnis - guitars
Jan Vacik - keyboards
Benno Schmidtler - bass
Bernhard Huber - drums


Background
Dreamscape have been one of those bands that fate has dealt a cruel blow just on the verge of greatness. Both of their previous albums showed plenty of promise but vocalist and label issues disrupted things. Today they are a very tight-knit unit with a monster vocalist in Roland Stoll. This guy has got the goods, and Dreamscape deliver a tidal wave of prime melodic progressive metal.

The Songs
The challenge is issued immediately with a crushing Dream Theater styled riff and military precision drumming on opener 'Clockwork'. Sounds good so far. 'Short Time News' is simply brilliant. A real triumph of melodic prog metal. It begins with a sublime soaring lead break, then chugs along until a mammoth chorus. Wolfgang Kerinnis on guitar is amazing. The epic 'The End Of Light' is a prog metaller's wet dream come true. You won't find a better 20 minutes to spend your time as this track segues between intricate acoustic passages to typical frenetic prog metal moments. If you needed a break from that metal marathon then the stunning ballad 'All I Need' is a great way to wind down. Fantastic vocals and soulful lead work make for great listening. 'Awake' era Dream Theater comes to mind on 'Silent Maze', but so much more melodic. There are similarities to the mighty Pagan's Mind on 'Flow', which is just as good as anything that PM could muster. Mr. Kerinnis is again outstanding on 'Infected Ground'. A mid tempo number stacked with melody and smouldering solo's. 'You Don't Know Me' is on the same track as 'Infected Ground' and a good closer.

In Summary
I believe the aspect of Dreamscape that gave me biggest thrill was their ability to move effortlessly from heavier moments to beautiful melodic passages, particularly in the bridges and choruses. I've already pointed out the world class performances of Stoll and Kerinnis, but the drumming and keyboards are also deserving of a mention. With this album Dreamscape have ended their silence in no uncertain terms!!
