Album Review

Many of the progressive metal bands that have emerged in the 21st century have come out of Europe, but Suspyre are among the American prog metal bands that emerged in the United States in the early 2000s — New Jersey, to be exact. When Time Fades..., Suspyre's third album, is fairly technical but not ultra-technical; some prog metallers are a lot more angular and difficult than these Jersey residents, and some prog metallers are hookier and provide songs that are easier to absorb. So one could say that while Suspyre don't go out of their way to be accessible, they don't go out of their way to be inaccessible either. When Time Fades... rocks aggressively, but the material is consistently melodic (often incorporating elements of European classical music and occasionally incorporating elements of jazz) and places a great deal of emphasis on nuance and songcraft. There are plenty of death metal, black metal, metalcore, rap-metal, doom metal, math metal, industrial metal, and alternative metal bands that take pride in showing listeners how viciously heavy they can be; When Time Fades... is never like that. Instead of emphasizing heaviness or bombast, this 2008 release emphasizes musicality — and like many other prog metal bands, Suspyre have a sound that links elements of power metal (as in Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Queensrÿche, and Manowar) with prog rock artists like Yes, Kansas, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. When Time Fades... falls short of excellent, although it's a decent (if slightly uneven) example of what prog metal has to offer in the United States in the 21st century. And there is never any doubt that the members of Suspyre can play their instruments well.

i just heard about these guys when they appeared on my fb page and i can officialy say i have a new obsession!!they are definitely the next big thing!!

Fantastic album by a fantastic band.

This is, thus far, Suspyre's greatest CD they've put out. As a progressive fan, I listen to such bands as Dream Theater, Pain of Salvation, Symphony X, Porcupine Tree, etc. As much as I love them and listen to their CDs over and over, Suspyre ranks up there with those bands to me and I actually tend to listen to them more than some of the aforementioned. I can't get enough of their music, and this CD is great. The solos are intense and sound great, there's an orchestral/jazz mix in numerous songs that help add to the epicness of their music, Barton's vocals are both powerful and emotional when they need to be - there's too much good I could possibly say about this CD. There's usually one or two songs on an album I don't like, but on this CD, I honestly never skip past any tracks that play when I have my library on shuffle. I'm also happy to see that they continued the "Gloria" song arc; "The Siren" is a very powerful piece. If I had to pick one song that stands out on this CD as the best, it's either "The Light of the Fire" or "Reign." Both are extremely catchy and both the vocals and instrumentals on each of these stands out as amazing to me. "Fallen Stars" is also a fantastic acoustic track and a nice change in sound.

To anyone that is a fan of progressive music, looking to get into it, or just generally likes rock this is a great band to get into and this CD is fantastic. Five stars, hands down.
