Morning After was formed by the Iliopylos brothers - that is all I know about the band. This was the only information I found in the cd booklet and since they do not have a homepage I can only guess whether it is their debut album or not. And if you cannot find any information about a band, the first thing you can get some impression from is the album cover. In the case of Morning After it grabbed with the first glance. A baby faced doll with feathers - like an angel symbol - with the autumn coloured background suggested a kind of a melancholic, gothic influenced emotional music.

And this is almost right. The album consists of slower and mid-paced songs and the synthetizers are producing gothic melodies and through the whole album we can feel the breeze of melancholy. They are based mostly in melodic rock music with slight touches of metal, as some growlings and heavier riffs appear. Their influences are ranging from Anathema to Savatage but I really miss the originality, that would be their own. It's boring and tiring. What is more, their vocalist is terrible when it comes to clean vocals. I can understand if one feels the need to sing but if one does not have a voice, why does he wants to sing?

I am sorry, but it was a pain to listen to the whole album. On one hand I can understand that Black Lotus Records wants to help bands from their homeland, but I am sure Greece has a lot more to offer than Morning After. PS: And as it has been proven a few times already that a good cover pic might be pretty misleading.
