Editorial Reviews

The band was nominated as "The best debut album of the year" on the Hungarian Metal Awards 2006. In August they had a very successful concert on the Sziget Festival which is the biggest festival of the Middle-East Europe and attended by thousands of people every year. In October the band started to record their second album. Aborting the recordings they played some gigs in the capital of Italy, Rome. In the beginning of 2007 the second album entitled "The Raven's Nest" was finished which will bring subsequent home and international success without fail!

Everwood, the Hungarian progressive metal band, has a bright future.

No, make that an exceptionally bright future.

On The Raven's Nest (TRN), their second studio release, Everwood continues to exhibit rare musical inspiration. The 15 songs on TRN are well-recorded, masterfully executed, and genuinely engaging. Most importantly for me, Everwood has a firm grasp on melody. So even though their songs can be guitar-driven heavy a la Dream Theater or Symphony X, they aren't afraid to tone down things and tug at the heartstrings using delicate solo piano or synths a la Marillion circa Misplaced Childhood.

In other words, Everwood strikes a refreshing balance between poignancy and an all-out head-banging metal onslaught.

Balazs "Balu" Koncz has a remarkable voice, boasting plenty of power and range -- with just a hint of an accent. Sure, if I listen hard enough for it, I can hear his Hungarian origins. But Balu sings, clearly, with passion and genuineness. There are some American-born singers who enunciate less well than Balu, I can assure you.

Guitarist Ferenc Farkas, keyboarist Attila Tanczer, and bassist Viktor Erdos create a lush musical landscape that draws me in while drummer Tamas Szabo propels it all forward -- breathlessly when need be, restrained and careful when a deft touch is required. It's obvious he's a gifted percussionist, but he doesn't need to double-time his way through the entire album to prove it.

And that's the key to understanding Everwood.

These guys are not your typical prog metal musicians. When you pop TRN into your CD player, don't expect to hear Mercenary, Nevermore, Dark Tranquillity, Into Eternity, Cellador, or DragonForce.

Everwood was recommended to me awhile back and I've enjoyed their music enough to leave this review. I'm still trying to interpret the overall themes of The Raven's Nest and am having a fun time doing so. Many of the songs start with piano or symphonic intros, then lead to heavier guitar and violins complemented together, as well alternating in rhythm to headbang to (Run to My Fate). Other patterns I've noticed are instrumentals intermixed with great guitar riffs (Pure Awakening, Prelude, Escape to Death); catchy-tunes (Leaves of November, Can't Rain Forever, Unbroken) and songs that are more ballad-like (Behind Your Smile, Redemption). Overall the album is an auditory experience that I've hugely enjoyed.
