5.0 out of 5 stars Redemption to the 10th power October 6, 2009
By T. Reid
Format:Audio CD
Redemption is back with a stellar performance. A beautifully written album comes to the masses. This is their best folks and I really mean that. A lot of people like to call a bands progression maturing. To me that's a label that is applied to bands that are young in age from conception. It's ridiculous when applied to bands like Redemption. These aren't kids in their lower 20's nor are they new to their craft. These are grown men. I feel that they perfected their sound here. That's not maturing; that's finding their place and presenting a well focused product. You will notice here how melodies intertwine in and out of technical riffing and simplicity. It's done so flawlessly that you have to rewind to hear that again. The transitions are remarkable. They are symbiotic, you can say. I found myself saying how in the world did they pull that off. This is not power metal like some people label them. At least I don't hear it here but it is Prog-Metal. This is a very emotional album and it's conveyed very well by Alder. On this album I KNEW where the choruses were on my first listen. The other albums I can not say the same happened. Here are two small problems I had with this album. LYRICS. Look I'm not going to be another fanboy here. Just because I praise this album to the heavens does not mean that I am going to overlook the fact that the lyrics are completely suspect at times. I like more of a poetic style. Second are background vocals. I want more. Ray sings with a smooth voice on Redemption albums. I feel his voice would benefit from extra vocals in the background that will amp up the feelings he is trying to get across as you are listening. People are saying that Ray can't sing like he use to. Silly rabbits. It's RAY ALDER. C'mon...stop it. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Judgement: Guilty of greatness! October 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate to have been able to purchase an advance copy of this album at a recent music festival and could not wait to pop it into the CD player. Oh, am I ever glad I did!

"Snowfall on Judgement Day" is the latest masterpiece by prog-metallers, Redemption. And it in no way disappoints! Redemption consists of six mega-talented musicians, Ray Alder (vocals), Nick van Dyk (guitar, keys), Bernie Versailles (guitar), Sean Andrews (bass), Chris Quirarte (drums), and Greg Hosharian (keys), and their respective chops are all on prominent display. There are musicians and then there are these guys! Wow!

The first track, "Peel", begins innocently, softly, before quickly putting the double bass to work, treating your ears like a boxer's speed bag. Crunching guitars and driving synth join right in and the next thing you know you're hooked. While this is a heavy song, ladies and gentlemen, musically and lyrically ("I look into my eyes, and nothing gazes back, shadows without substance, fading into black") it by no means goes overboard and all the progressive elements for which Redemption are noted are present and accounted for throughout. Impossible not to tap the feet and bob the neck along to this number!

"Walls" keeps the riffage going along with a solid bass and drum groove. Synthesizers blend into the mix but choose to remain in the background to support the guitar work which takes center stage. Ray's voice sounds spot on and the listener can definitely feel the emotion, especially in the choruses.

"Leviathan Rising" sneaks up on you with a clever intro blending effects, fancy drum and guitar work, and timing changes. By the time you think you have figured out how this song is going to go you realize you were wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Judgement; Redemption delivers October 10, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's been a banner year for all us Progressive Rock fans with new releases by Dream Theater, Riverside, Porcupine Tree and now Redemption.
Snowfall on Judgement Day finds the band in it's finest hour.
This is a kick-ass cd. The follow up to the critically-acclaimed "Origin of Ruin" is 70+ minutes of remarkable music.
From the opening track "Peel" to the closing number "Love Kills Us All/Life in One Day" Judgement is by far their best release to date.
It even has a guest appearance of DT's James LaBrie on vocals with Ray Alder on the track "Another Day Dies."
Speaking of Alder, his vocals are amazing throughout the whole album, as well as the fantastic musicianship of Nick van Dyk, Bernie Versaille, Sean Andrews, Chris Quiarte and Greg Hosharian.
If you haven't got this disc yet, "what are you waiting for?" go get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Redemption peaks... March 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
With Snowfall on Judgment Day, Redemption recaptures the magic of their second album, their quintessential masterpiece, The Fullness of Time. The album is marked with a noticeable increase of level in the songwriting department, utilizing more addictive vocal melodies, dexterous guitar work, amazing rhythm parts, and great use of keyboards.

All of the songs are rife with Redemption's trademark riffery, slicing through melodic phrases of guitar harmonies and synth patches. Primary songwriter Nick van Dyk continues to impart corrosive riffs and melting leads alongside his rhythm guitar partner Bernie Versailles. More than prior releases, the interplay between the guitars is more elaborate, sometimes building from a single riff to mammoth soundcapes. A prime example of this feat is the second track "Walls" -- it starts off with eerie, industrial-like beats, but they're quickly replaced by wall-of-sound guitar harmonies, a fantastic chorus, and fuzzy bass lines. Alder really outdoes himself here, producing some of his most memorable melodies in Redemption.

The guitar work is solid on the whole record, but there are some pieces which deserve special mention. The use of eastern scales on "Another Day Dies", one of the heavier cuts on the CD, adds a cool texture to the riffs. It is also punctuated by a great bass line by Sean Andrews who fills each song with a strong low end. The song features Dream Theater singer James Labrie duetting with Ray Alder -- this is their first duet since Fates Warning's 1991 album, Parallels.

The incorporation of synths into the rock-solid guitar sound is seamless. New member Greg Hosharian does a great job on the keys, rendering the compositions more nuanced.
