Format: Audio CD
Despite being an Australian, The Fourth Season was actually the first album that I heard from this Aussie power metal band. These guys do possess the necessary chops to play prog metal but calling these guys 'progressive' is a bit of a stretch in my opinion, I feel that they aren't really pushing any musical boundaries, they are pretty much walking paths already paved for them by bands like Evergrey, Kamelot, Dragonland and Vanden Plas. However they do pull this sound off rather well and can quiet easily compete with and even top some of these European and American power/prog bands. The most basic way I could describe these guys is basically by saying that they are more or less Australia's answer to Evergrey, but this comment doesn't really do them justice. They play a brand of commonly European prog/power metal that relies largely on atmospheric keyboards, uplifting melodies, groovy chug riffs, maiden-esque guitar harmonies and soaring vocals.

Despite maybe a lack of originality these guys do put a stamp on this brand of metal and do have a unique sound that could be recognisable as their own and their performance is excellent. These guys do create a kinda of dreamy sound scape with heavy chugging riffs with a soft synth melody often floating underneath, the riffs are often simple power chords played with the purpose of providing a heavy and powerful sound which is woven with pretty guitar harmonies inbetween. Silvio Massaro's powerful mid range vocals are breathtaking at times, the man really knows his voice and how to use it to great effect.

On The Fourth Season the band really do take their songwriting abilities to a new level.

You can not go wrong with anything that Vanishing Point releases. I wish it didn't take so long between releases. I don't have time for song by song review, but this CD has a great mix of musicianship and incredible vocals. Some slower parts on the CD which sound great, but then they hit the throttle again. All the talent VP has is showcased on this CD. Check out the band 'Eyefear' when you have time...enjoy.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; why Vanishing Point isn't a bigger name in progressive metal circles is an absolute mystery to me. After four albums (on as many labels), Vanishing Point has proven they have what it takes to be ranked alongside bands like Vanden Plas and Threshold.

Released in 2007, the Fourth Season is the band's fourth album, and finds the band continuing to refine their already impressive brand of melodic progressive metal. The band has the technical prowess you'd expect from a progressive metal band, but unlike some of their peers they don't let instrumental pyrotechnics get in the way of the actual songs. Speaking of which, the songwriting skills of this band continue to improve with every album. The Fourth Season features some of the band's best material to date, full of incredible melodies, intelligent lyrics, and an overall spirit that is impossible to resist. Once again, Sylvio Massaro's captivating melodic voice is what draws you in and keeps you engaged throughout the album.

The Fourth Season is another first class progressive metal album from Vanishing Point. I have very high expectations of this band, and they never disappoint. I suppose I could have wished for a longer album (it's roughly 30 minutes shorter than Embrace the Silence), but I certainly can't complain about the quality of the music on the Fourth Season. Hopefully this will be the album that brings Vanishing Point the recognition they deserve.

Oh, and the cover artwork for the Fourth Season is absolutely gorgeous.
