Canadian progressive metal veterans Heaven's Cry returned from a 10-year absence late last year with the release of their third album Wheels of Impermanence. I hadn't previously heard this band, but when they were added to the lineup for this year's ProgPower USA festival, I figured I'd give them a try just to see what to expect.

Heaven's Cry, at least with this album, seems to play a fairly standard version of progressive metal (as in the Dream Theater school). Actually, they seem more like a cross between Fates Warning's atmospheres and subtle melodies and Evergrey's crunch and heaviness (and on , but you get the general idea. This is very solid stuff, in terms of musicianship, vocals, production, and overall songwriting, but it lacks the kind of spark or originality that might make it stand out in a very crowded genre. There's nothing that really commands your attention or sticks with you after the album has ended, aside from the very metal, very thrashing "Realignment," which sounds like something from Anthrax's Worship Music.

Like I said, this is my only exposure to Heaven's Cry, so I don't know how well Wheels of Impermanence stacks up to the band's first two albums. It seems a bit dated in an era when bands like Enslaved, Leprous, Orphaned Land and Riverside are pushing the boundaries of the progressive metal genre, but if you're more into the classic, Dream Theater-inspired progressive metal sound, Wheels of Impermanence is worth a listen.

Oh, and Prosthetic's packaging for this disc is dreadful. It's a cardboard CD wallet that makes it very hard to access the disc without scratching it. I'm sure it was cheaper to make, but it just makes the whole thing look disposable.

After a decade apart, Heaven's Cry regrouped and put out an amazing album. Initially I wasn't sure how much I liked this one. But I found myself constantly going back to it until I was humming guitar parts, even the drum parts have melody (think Mark Zonder). These guys have elements of Fates Warning and their countrymen Voivod but sound like their own band for sure. There is not a weak track on here. My favorites: the title track, Empire's Doll, The Healing and the Compass, I highly recommend this release and if you love it, Prosthetic Records has reissued the band's first 2 albums as well. Both were remixed and remastered and sound like they were recorded at the same time as Wheels Of Impermanence. Support great prog metal and buy this!!!
