SYMPHORCE – Unrestricted
Andy B. Franck has two concurrent metal bands taking his time – the more traditional power outfit Brainstorm and this slightly more mainstream sounding Symphorce. Slowly evolving away from their Nevermore penchant, Unrestricted officially signals the demise of their old ways. Bright piano, swirling keyboard effects and streamlined riffing equals Symphorce’s assent into pure modern pastures. And if I hear the incessant chorus “Until It’s Over” one more time, I may have to bathe my ears in acid. Stick to "Twice Second" or "Godspeed" if you want to hear what this German act are capable of.
