Projekt Gemineye: A Brand New Day

A few weeks ago I reviewed An Ordinary Day by Canadian progressive rock artist Mark Anthony K (aka Projekt Gemineye). Well, here is the follow-up titled A Brand New Day. Originally the albums were going to be released as one disc but because of its length the artist decided to split the recordings into two parts.

The first release was more symphonic keyboard driven progressive rock while A Brand New Day is very much guitar-centric. Like the last record Anthony sings and plays all the instruments making this a true one man band and the best thing is it doesn’t really sound like it. While the last album occasionally ventured into heavier territory this one features great riffs throughout.

The album’s first track “A New Day” tows the line between heavy and light with great riffs and catchy guitar licks throughout. The very catchy “Clear Your Mind” is next, another guitar dominated track featuring some of his best playing on the disc. The soft and heavy guitar parts had me hooked from the very first note. “The Long Ride” features more excellent guitar work and another catchy melody. The mini epic “Space & Time” starts as a mood laden piece with dreamy vocals and equal measures of guitar and keyboards before the guitar rips open the fabric of space and time with some stellar axe slinging. Just an excellent track. The disc ends with the fiery rocker “Sell Your Soul” featuring some of the heaviest riffs on the disc.

A Brand New Day is an excellent companion piece to An Ordinary Day and like that album comes highly recommended, especially to fans of heavy and accessible progressive rock.
