For those who like their music to feature both brains and brawn, ‘hereafter’ is essential listening.
It is an essential disc and undoubtedly one of the records of a year which has already seen remarkable breadth and variety and it is an unmitigated pleasure to listen to from start to finish.
If a single drop of metallic blood flows through your veins, then Jaded Heart will leave you banging your head and grinning from ear to ear. ‘Live in Cologne’ is the perfect introduction to the band and will leave you wanting more – which is surely what you want form any good live performance.
Ruthlessly paired back, there is not a single song that outstays its welcome and not a hint of filler, and it seems hardly to be hyperbole to suggest that any and every metal fan should consider adding this excellent release to their collection.
...a fine and respectful job has been done on these priceless treasures and a whole new generation will be able to discover Rory’s charms for themselves.
A strong, exciting, memorable album produced by a band who have nothing to prove but seem to want to do so anyway. Well worth checking out.
The effort that was expended upon this work has clearly paid off because this truly is an astonishing piece that encourages and stimulates the imagination as much as it provides entertainment. A brave, dense step into the blackened abyss of the unknown this is a remarkable record.
