"While the World Awaits" was the promising debut album of this Finnish prog metal act and now they're back with an amazing follow-up, entitled "Tomorrow". The band has surely matured and developed at least a few steps from their debut. It's melodic progressive metal combined with some more traditional heavy metal elements that we're talking about here. Influences can be heard from such artists as Dream Theater, Stratovarius and quite surprisingly some 80's heavy metal bands as Dio, Iron Maiden and Ozzy Osbourne. The reference to Ozzy comes in especially when talking about Marko Waara's classy vocals.

So the elements come from power metal, traditional heavy metal and progressive metal and are nicely blended into a well functioning final result. Tunnelvision's outcome isn't eventually that progressive, but surely more technical that it could be classified as power metal. The keyboard player has been replaced since the debut album and the sound is slightly different, and it's not too prominent an element in the overall sound as it easily tends to be nowadays. The keyboard doesn't lean that much to the 70's prog style as it did on the debut. There aren't useless show-off solo parts, more likely the skillful musicianship suits the style very well and the overall sound is a bit heavier than on the debut.

"Lightning" is a nice, slower song with some certain hit potential, some other highlights being "Calling", "Silence", "Parasites", "Time Of The Hunter's Moon", "Ribbon Of Tears" and the album ending, grandiose 11-minute "While The World Awaits". Definitely worth checking out if you're into progressive heavy metal.
