Mind's Eye Set To Release Eagerly Awaited Forth Album In 'Walking On H2o'



ALAND, Finland (Lion Music) - Mind's Eye are back with their first new studio album in 4 years and there best yet in 'Walking On h2o'. The album sees the band taking a huge leap forward in the song-writing department with each song being carefully arranged and perfectly balanced to fit the theme of the album.

Walking On h2o is a concept piece and confronts the bands thoughts on Human evolution, Science, Religion, Unexplained phenomena, Alien abduction, deadly virus, earth pollution, loyalty, marriage and Immortality. The aim and reached goal was a cinematic rock album with songs that where individually so strong that they could stand their own ground if served as singles, fitting anyway the concept of the album. Great choruses covered with crystal clear production making sure that Mind's Eye are here to stay for lots of years to come.

The music is still progressive but not in a technical level. Instead Mind's Eye rather shows their strength as songwriters, still using melodies and hooks as their strongest weapons. This time also providing them with the right amount of production goodies the band always lacked to some extent previously. Walking On h2o is a variety of symphonic, progressive music, mixing it with classic hard rock tunes and softer songs fully packed with string arrangements and big lush vocal harmonies taking the listener back to the days of songs with big chorus and hooks you'll be instantly singing to. Even though the song is the bands focal point there is still lot's of chops from both guitarist/bass player Johan Niemann and drummer Daniel Flores to go around.

Songs like "A rabbit in the hat" and "Equally Immortal" shows the bands great chorus hooks, while songs like "Sahara in an hourglass", "The Nazca lines", "Mrs. Clair Voyance" and "Heal my karma" shows the bands super strength in writing symphonic and progressive songs. The band also shows their stamina and brain power with their second ever recorded instrumental song "Flight of the An.unna.ki" showing what the band is fully capable of with their instruments. On the heavier side you have songs like "Sacred rules" and "Out of my system" showing that the band is capable of making heavier epic songs with modern sound. The 70's are also represented here when the song "Umbrellas under the sun" appears out of nowhere reminding you that bands like E.L.O. and Queen are still a huge influence on the band. Last but not least you have the two last songs "When I whisper" a song with only orchestral arrangements and vocals, proving Andreas Novak can sing with so much feeling it will give you tears to your eyes, and "Poseidon says" which is 11 minutes long, the epic and ending song on the album about one persons fight to survive his deadly cancer, his whish to be immortal and to walk on water, sailing off to ask the old Greek mythology god "Poseidon" for help.
