BELIEVE: "The Warmest Sun In Winter"

Rating: RRRR
Label: Metal Mind
Review by Martien Koolen

Believe's fifth studio album The Warmest Sun In Winter is their best effort so far. It was recorded in Mirek Gil's studio in early 2013 and the CD includes eight new tracks including Please Go Home; a song written in memory of Robert Rosnak, a Polish reporter and friend of the band.

The album opens with a short song called The End, filled with guitars and piano, followed by one of the highlights of the CD, namely the guitar-dominated track Beginners. The absolutely amazing guitarsolos of Gil in this song remind me of Sattelite and Riverside; pure magic. Another great song is Heartless Land, also the longest track, which is again filled with breathtaking melodies and exquisite guitarpassages, solos and grooves.

The only disappointing song on the album is the so called hidden track The Bright Day, which is rather weird and jazzy. But I can really recommend this album to lovers of melodic progressive music as Believe has really turned into an amazing band.
