'The Storm Within' could go down as one of their best ever albums. It deserves to.

weden's Evergrey have been around, in one guise or another, for almost twenty years with 'The Storm Within' marking their eighteenth year as recording artists. What '...Within' also does is show just how good and how important a band they have become over the years. Playing an almost mellow kind of Progressive Melodic Metal filled with melody, harmony and a musical attack of the highest calibre is what this quintet are all about, and this opus sees them at the top of their game.

The band of Tom S. Englund, Rikard Zander, Johan Nieman, Henrik Danhage and Jonas Ekdahl have pulled out all the stops, using the best production, mix and mastering techniques to enhance the huge sound Evergrey have come up with for this album. They have also written some of their best ever songs which sees Englund's lyrics dealing with loving someone, losing them and then having to try to pick yourself up and see if you can move on; it only helps to reinforce just how good this group of musicians really are.

'The Distance' is first up, both as album opener, single and video. It sums up what Evergrey are all about; dark melancholic riffs joined to driving bass and drum rhythms and that unforgettable Englund vocal are all on show, and this one song sets the tone for the rest of this fine release. 'Passing Through' is highly melodic with some wonderful harmony vocals that bring the song to life, whilst 'My Allied Ocean' is anger and passion personified.

Three tracks worth highlighting are those featuring Evergrey's secret weapons, Floor Jansen and Tom Englund's wife Carina, whose contributions to this album cannot be praised highly enough. The songs in question are 'Disconnect', 'In Orbit', and second video 'The Paradox Of The Flame'. I urge you to check them out to see why I rate this band so highly.

Many bands don't get to a twentieth anniversary in this fickle world we call the "music business". However, those that do have worked their backsides off to make music that they love... and hopefully we do too. Evergrey are one such act and 'The Storm Within' could go down as one of their best ever albums. It deserves to.
