Evergrey live in Athens 2019

I was able to walk into the club, midway through Crossing Eternity’s short set. The Swedish/Romanian combo forms a rather decent prog power band, with cool ideas and more than adequate chops. Their vocalist Berti is not your typical wimpy tenor, spitting his guts out, but has a rather pleasant baritone that he utilizes well, within the band’s melodic compositions. Definitely worth checking out.

Lance King has been around quite a bit. He’s held the vocalist post for Balance Of Power, Pyramaze and Ilium most recently and many others along the way. He’s also been a solo artist, but the last time we heard from him in that capacity was with “A Moment in Chiros” some eight or so years ago. This is set to change this year as his second solo outing “ReProgram” is coming out.
