Editorial Reviews

The Swedish metal kings Evergrey are back with their 6th album. After the success of their last 2 albums and several tours, Evergrey are so much more than just metal. Power metal fans love them for their catchy melodies, goth fans love them for their dark side and heavy metal heads love them for their heavy approach. This time the album was produced by the producers team Sanken Sankquist/Ralf Glaumann (Rammstein, Britney Spears, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard). Inside Out.

4.0 out of 5 stars yes...a new era April 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Yes, this is the beginning of a new era, for I do believe that this is the first time that Evergrey has had the same line up for 2 albums in a row! The album is good. different, but not atypical for them. most of the songs on this album are more up-tempo, with more drive than privious albums. Though it did not rivet me like some previous albums-ie, Search for Truth, Inner Cercle-I dig what they are doing. I also suppose that I dont really mind that they are gaining more comercial success. Even if they sold out completly theyd still be better than My Chemical Romance! For you old-schoolers, it certainly doesnt harcken back to the days of Dark Discovory, or Solitude Domonance, but i ask you, why would any band after 5 progressivly successful albums, want to retread on old ground? listen to the album, and take it for what it is: unique, quality, Swedish prog metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointment?? It's EVERGREY! April 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Evergrey has been a fan of mine for years now, and as a fan I went out and got this the day it came out. I put all negative (and positive) things I heard about it aside until I heard it all for myself. I must say it's a different approach for Evergrey, as they have gone for a more upbeat, brighter, less technical sound. This doesn't compare to any previous album, which personally I find great! I don't want to hear something that sounds like The Inner Circle, or anything of that matter, that's why those CD's exist. Monday Morning Apocalypse was made to sound like what it is, and I'm sure the next one won't sound anything like this. As for the songs, not all are "amazing" but there are definately some stand out classics here. The highlights of the CD for me have to be:

At Loss For Words: Starts out with a short piano/clean guitar piece, quickly moving into a classic Evergrey riff, followed by the best chorus on the CD.

Still In The Water: Probably the best song on the CD. The whole atmosphere of this song is great. It's heavy and Englunds vocals are dark and wonderful. However, what really makes it top notch are the backing vocals throughout the song.

Other standouts are the title track and "Curtain Call", which includes the CD's best riff at 2:04.

Rated 4 starts for a couple "duds" on the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evergrey August 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If "Monday Morning Apocalypse" the latest offering from Sweden's Evergrey, is a prediction of things to come from this quintet, then "komma med den pĺ och komma med den pĺ snabbt" (bring it on and bring it quickly). For the uninitiated, Everygrey, Sweden's progressive metal ambassadors, have generally steeped themselves in the darker side, lyrically and musically and while the title of this latest release may be contradictory, "Monday Morning Apocalypse", is less dark but no less impactful; it is a perfect molten meld of progressive metal and radio friendly metal. The result could be a walk through the mainstream for the band that has no less integrity. If you need a comparison-imagine the first time you heard Master of Puppets.

The band has tapped into a deeper approach to composition, layered in kicking hooks and the result is a cd that feels like a hit in the making. Formed in 1996, Everygrey has gone through the requisite member changes and resulting impacts on their music, but "Monday Morning Apocalypse" executes the current lineup's ability to all come to the "recording table" with a singular vision. The album was produced and mixed by Sanken Sandquist and Stefan Glauman, former producers of Rammstein, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard among others and perhaps explains the slight departure from the feel that former releases like "The Dark Discovery" gave listeners.

Members Tom S. Englund, Rikard Zander, Henrik Danhage, Fredrik Larsson and Jonas Ekdahl have formed a synchronicity that packs the entire cd with one powerhouse, stadium frenzy inducing tune after another, with the occasional ballad to cleanse the palate. Proof? Debuted at number 6 on the Swedish charts. Further proof? It is difficult to single out any particular weakness in any of the tracks or the cd as a whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to it, absorb it May 3, 2007
By Ropy
Format:Audio CD
Thats what you have to do in order to digest a cd. In this fast paced MTV world we are trained to skip through the tracks or "buy the single" without giving an album a try. This is good stuff, great guitar playing and a new sound.

I personally like it when someone tries a different guitar or different amp and change stuff up a little! There are less keyboards on this and killer melody and awesome tight riffage. You will like it.Dont believe the [...] This is a SOLID offering by a group of guys who think like you do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the Evergrey you would expect... August 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This isn't an album that you would expect from Evergrey, well at least not totally. This album definitely is a step into a more progressive direction but less epic than their previous works; it seems that the music was meant to have more of an impact w/out possibly getting you lost along the way when you hear it. Not to say that Evergrey was a really complicated band musically, but this album is just a lot simpler in it's sound & delivery which makes easier to listen to; but don't worry, the band's typically sounds are there, just not in abundance. I think fans who give this album a chance would be surprised but yet would still be satisfied by what they hear. Check it out!
