Evergrey - The Atlantic

Almost twenty five years a slow burning career that has taken them somewhere, through ups and downs, Evergrey are a proof that despite how talented you might or might not be, persistence is key when you’re trying to make it in any sector, but especially in music. Their eleventh album and a closer of a loose “oceanic” trilogy of album, you’ll get the melancholic, semi doomy prog of the Swedes. Oftentimes soothing, rather than raging and superbly complicated, the band relies more of layering and atmosphere than anything else.
