Ever heard of a German band called Infinte Horizon??? Well, if not and you like progressive power metal such as Symphony X, Threshold or Pagan's Mind, then you should definitely check them out and surf to their homepage and buy "Mind Passages". That record contains eleven tracks, and the CD is produced and mixed by the band. The production is clear and so are the songs! "The Way To Eternity" is full of great music, and the second one ("Return To Babylon") is just as phenomenal as the opener! Well, there are other great songs on the CD, such as the lyrical religious "Elysium" or the faster "Hole In The Sky" which is performed with the necessary aggression, but never forgets the progressiveness and the quality. There is the catchy "Daydreamer" again, the lyrics are really interesting, making the listener think about today's society.

The following five songs are a little conceptional story named "Space Dream Navigation". A man, followed by happenings of bad luck, tries to flee from this cruel world but oscillates between reality and dream. After the introduction, "The Experiment" follows. A ten-minutes lasting heavy song, whose riffing and structures really reflect the desperation of the character. After the quiet interlude "Secret Invention", the man regrets his decision in the song "Face In The Mirror" but the song isn't as heavy as the ones mentioned before. The quite straight performed final "Eternal Salvation" brings no musical surprises. I had to smile at the end of this song, as the man wakes up in reality, turns his radio on and listens to the "current number one in the charts: "Space Dream Navigation" by Infinite Horizon! ;-)

The last song is a remade bonus, because "The Reaper" was first recorded for a 1999 MCD. A dark song, reminding me of Angel Dust, maybe because of the keyboards.

On the (by the way very cool) homepage of the band, you can download two samples from "Mind Passages" ("The Way To Eternity" and "Elysium"), samples from the record "Beyond Infinity" from 2001 and all five tracks from the above mentioned MCD - isn't that great?? It sure is !!!
Unfortunately, I can't rate the CD with more than five points but I would if I could! It can be only a matter of time until the band gets bigger, they surely have the stuff be a great band in the power-prog-genre in the future. I can hardly wait to see them doing a headliner tour!!! ;-)
