Heaven's Cry - Wheels Of Impermanence

Heaven's Cry
Wheels Of Impermanence
by Dory Khawand at 10 January 2013, 5:22 PM

Montreal brought us something else other than snowflakes and Cryptopsy for once in 2012 and this time it’s Progressive Metal. HEAVEN'S CRY comes to us with their third full length album “Wheels Of Impermanence” and it seems they still have some energy bottled up in them since 1996. So, will the band enter the newfound realm of Progressive Metal with originality and inspiration? Or will they still sit on the old oaken table with the majority of dying Metal bands? Let’s find out.

We all know the term "Progressive" always comes with a load of variety and loads of inspirations from many genres out there. Being plain and just saying the band is Progressive Metal is probably the vaguest thing you could ever say, and HEAVEN'S CRY here, comes to us with bearing gifts from the realms of Rock, Jazz, and very exquisite 70’s Prog.

“Wheels Of Impermanence” stitches together everything from the commercial sound you’d come across in many new releases and at the same time sticks to a formula that’s neither outdated, nor original. Let’s say it’s just a mixture of early 70s CAMEL and late 90s DREAM THEATER… yeah, that would be the most perfect way to describe this release. Like almost any Prog Metal album it may have it tends to have its unexpected and sudden switches from sound to sound like in “The Healing” which changes from a regular Metal driven track into vocal chants, which is actually my least favorite track on the LP, but it proves my point pretty well.

The album overall isn’t bad at all. It’s nothing extremely out of the ordinary, but it’s a decent Progressive Metal album with enough energy to satisfy your ears. Anyone in a Prog mood needs to give this album a chance.
