Release date: January 25th, 2019. Catalog ID: AFM 701-9. Concept album, based on the fear of alien abduction. Inspired by countless hours of Whitley Streiber books. Recording information: Recorded at Los Angered Recordings from January to April 2001. Mastered at The Mastering Room.
Evergrey was also known for it’s unique mix of progressive and atmospheric metal (they seem to be less progressive now, opting for an even darker feel), and this album perfectly combines the two. Odd time signatures and extremely technical riffs bounce off of haunting keyboard lines and severely dark stylings in perfect harmony, creating a sound that has yet to be matched, save for perhaps the Norwegian band Green Carnation’s earlier albums. Englund, aside from being a very good guitar player, also possesses one of the best voices (IMO) in modern metal today. It’s powerful yet soothing at the. The crowning achievement of this Swedish band, it’s also one of the most original things I’ve ever heard, and I always give extra points for originality. Basically, if you like any of the things I’ve described here (progressive music, atmospheric music, sad music, dark music, heavy music, whatever), this album will surely keep you satisfied.

Album (Studio full-length).
It's a concept album that overtly presents a story about alien abduction, but focuses more on the emotional ordeal of the experience (as depicted in Whitley Strieber's Communion), and as a result has more widely applicable emotional themes than you might expect from the concept. In fact, overall Evergrey display a subtle touch, engaging less.
