An untainted marriage of power and melody fused within an emotional composition that is designed to touch your soul.

Evergrey is a progressive power metal act from Gothenburg, Sweden. The group has been active since 1995 and I will reluctantly concede that I’ve heard of this band but never actually heard their music, until now. Evergrey must be one of metal’s best keep secrets. An untainted marriage of power and melody fused within an emotional composition that is designed to touch your soul.

This band has a knack for weaving lyrics and sentiment together into something reflective and universally accessible. The music is a revolving observation of the above-mentioned design. The Atlantic is Evergrey’s eleventh studio record and it became available last month (January 25th 2019) via AFM Records.

A methodical album that capitalizes on a concept that works. Like being a part of the ocean itself, we ride the waves of this emotion. Engaged in this somber intensity until the final track. Highlights on this album are: “Weightless”, “All I Have”, “A Secret Atlantis”, “The Tidal”, “Currents” and “The Beacon”.

Evergrey has earned my recognition and it’s about time they earned yours. Ride the progressive waves and navigate the intellectual storms that make up The Atlantic! \m/
