DREAM THEATER CD review on Rockblog online

September 15th, 2011

8/10 CD review online, read it here (in English).

“Samengevat blijkt dat zelfs een groot drummer als Portnoy vervangbaar is en dat Dream Theater ook zonder hem de toppositie binnen de progressieve metal moeiteloos consolideert. Het resultaat is een album van ruim 75 minuten boordevol tempowisselingen, heavy riffs, mooie refreinen en muzikaal gefreak. Dream Theater blijft daarbij vooral gewoon Dream Theater.”

September 15th, 2011

Feature and CD review online, read it here (in English).

“Opeth outdid themselves by leaving nearly all trademarks behind and creating a completely new, yet so familiar sound with a feeling for silence but also much raw power. You hear that this is Opeth playing but they’re taking their music to a new level. Brilliant!”

OPETH feature and CD review on Rockportaal online

September 15th, 2011

Nice feature and CD review online, read it here (in Dutch).

“Opeth heeft mij gegrepen met deze cd. Hoewel ik de combinatie van grunt en zang op de voorgaande cd’s heerlijk vind, ben ik van begin tot eind gefascineerd geweest door de muziek die Opeth nu heeft opgenomen. De energie, het vinden van de balans tussen wanorde en ritme, de spanning tussen de muziekinstrumenten. Alles lijkt op Heritage op zijn plaats te vallen en Opeth verrijkt zelf het erfgoed van Zweden. … Opeth flikt het met Heritage weer om prominent bovenaan te kunnen staan in het jaarlijstje van 2011.”

LEPROUS CD review on Dutch Progressive Rock Pages online

September 13th, 2011

10/10 CD review on DPRP online.

“My gut reaction is the same as when I heard Pain of Salvation’s Remedy Lane or Queensrÿche’s Operation Mindrime. A breakthrough disc that should catapult Leprous to the upper levels of the progressive rock/metal genre. An album that within a few years will be widely regarded as a classic.

 It’ll take something equally extraordinary to knock this off the top of my best of 2011 albums list.”
