Heaven's Cry: Food For Thought Substitute/ Primal Power Addiction

Having returned to action with their third album Wheels of Impermanence, Canada's Heaven's Cry continue their rebirth with the reissue of their first two albums courtesy of Prosthetic Records. Guitarist Eric Jarrin says, "We worked very hard writing those tunes but unfortunately, we did not have the resources at the time to make it sound the way we wanted it to. Having the opportunity to revisit these albums and give them a new polish, it finally feels like justice has been done to these songs." I'm pleased to report that here in 2013 both albums sound mighty fine with plenty of punch.

Both releases are definitely progressive metal genre but there are time changes aplenty, jazz inflections and Yes-type moments to keep the listener satisfied throughout. Despite that the band seems to have a love for traditional pop music somewhere in their bones and this seeps out on most songs through the hooks and melodies. The fact that Midnight Oil are covered on Primal Power Addiction adds to the 1980s feel and pleasingly isn't the track which I feel most drawn to even though it is by far the best known.
