Redemption Snowfall On Judgment Day

The accomplished rockers of Redemption know how to deliver the sort of driving, guitar- and synth-driven prog that gets fists pumping and eyes lifted upward. Snowfall on Judgment Day contains more than enough gritty and glittery keyboard tones, boiling grooves, and harmonic and rhythmic surprises to keep things interesting — but to its great credit, artfully avoids going too far into wankiness. “Fistful of Sand” rumbles deliciously, mixing dirty keyboard and guitar tonalities into an engagingly warped metal soundscape; “Black and White World” opens with a piano solo that foreshadows the rock to come, fleshes out one section of groove with unexpected lofi blips, and throws in lithe synth leads as well. Tastefully explosive! Michael Gallant (InsideOut, insideout.com )
