Review: Suspyre – When Time Fades [2008]

amazon-suspyreSuspyre is a progressive metal troupe whose 11-track trek WHEN TIME FADES takes the listener through a labyrinth of dark passageways illuminated with fierce metallic explosiveness. Equipped with the similar songwriting devices as Dream Theater, Fates Warning, and Nevermore, Suspyre precisely pulls from each to form their own spin on the genre, as songs like the galloping power metal might of “The Light of the Fire,” the jazz brass coming from out of nowhere on “Reign,” and the startling fretwork audible on “Lighted Endrhyme” denote the unique stamp this band offers. Discernibly darker with a fondness for the symphonic (“Siren”), Suspyre produce a rich musical experience that fans of Helloween and Children of Bodom alike can agree on. www.lasersedgegroup.com -Mike SOS
