Myon - Ghost in Paradise - 2005 - Low Frequency Records
According to their website, which as a sidebar, seems to be where all of their creativity is going, “Myon are from the city of Oulu and were founded in 1995. After a few years of composing and rehearsing, Myon released their highly praised debut album “Heavens Garden” in 1998. The band toured in Finland to get more recognition and the result was the recording of the second album “Ghost in Paradise” (2002). The real result? Melt a Stryper and an Yngwie Malmstein cd, and you'll get the gist of what "Ghost in Paradise" sounds like. Technically, the musicianship is there, but the tracks sound too reminiscent of 90’s progressive metal, suggesting the band locked in on their sound eleven years ago and aren’t crafted with good hooks. The one redeeming factor is Matti Torro who manages to emerge from the cd with some impressive drum fills (1 min 57secs into track two to be precise) and the cd showcases his skilled drumming overall. Lastly, according to the band, “The new album “Slideshow” is a very fresh approach to the ever-changing face of rock music. The album has a clear and deep sound with a very professional touch and amazingly catchy songs”. Let’s hope they make good on their promise.
