HEAVEN'S CRY

WHEELS OF IMPERMENANCE

PROSTHETIC RECORDS

2012

 

GLIMPSES OF GREATNESS

 

If Progressive metal and particularly bands like Lillian Axe is your thing then a listen to Heaven’s Cry might just be something that will pay off.

 

 


There are some wonderful soundscapes on ‘Wheels’ and one of the band’s two singers Sylvain Auclair does have the feel of Derek LeFevre about him (Lillian Axe’s previous singer) lyrically too we are on interesting ground.

 

 


Three songs in though ‘Fire, Fire’ is the real wildcard,: fast swirling sing along heavy music that is a melting pot in one single song. It’s the sort of song that instantly has you sit up and wonder if… if it’s maybe an aberration or if they can repeat the trick? Sadly the answer is no.

 

 


Heaven’s Cry may have been around for a while but the rest of the album seems a little similar, a little dusty and has none of the savage spark of ‘Fire, Fire’ which is a real shame. If you like Prog you may well get more out of this but really Heaven’s Cry are more followers in the genre than leaders.
