IVORY TOWER , the German group, was born from the ashes of AX'N SEX in 1996. After various movements within it and two albums, Ivory Tower and in 1998 Beyond The Stars in 2000, a third album was born in 2006:IT. The latter, after a few edits, a label change and a change of title, is again offered to the public in 2008.
Subjective Enemyis a concept album which sees a man following severe personality disorders, plunged into a dark chaos of relationships and finds himself alone, his family having left. His desire to change attitudes there do nothing, evil will win. Not really all that gay.
Musically, the situation is quite different. IVORY TOWERinflames 17 titles, 6 of which are small interludes linking the history of our man. The song of AndréFISHER is exciting, modulating her voice over the tracks, at ease in the treble ( André MATOS is sometimes not very far) than in the midrange, which is even phrasing toAxl Rose (My World ). It really gives the tone for this story. Compositions melodic metal place where HELLOWEEN(Keys ), SUPERIOR, Queensryche (under the excellent Subjective Enemy ) or ROYAL HUNT (intro Listen! and the beginning guitar / keyboardWarning) have already illustrated. But no plagiarism here below, since the group's compositions to affix his personal touch, every emotion (Subjective Enemy) war power (Welcome to ... and of his best instrumental intro effect) or in darker, heavier (The Calling). It also alternates passages angry and calmer passages within the same title (sublime Construction Site). Mid-album, Words female choirs and soothes our heart rate and is our cochlea. The album ends with and Awake 11 minutes, a beautiful, closer to a part of Progressive Metal construction, combining the new power and melody.
qualities and melodic musical Subjective Enemy of make an album that more advisable it would be a pity to ignore. A good entendeur ....
