„Eternity“ is the second album of th swiss rock band Sahara Rain. And it is every time hard for an artist or band to publish the second output. Cause you always stay in the focus of the first album…if the new one is better or not. That means that „Eternity“ has to be as good asthe former „Sands in your Hands“ or even better. And…what can I say…the band made it !!
Sahara Rain who was formed back in 2007 now appear with the following line up:
Domenico Ricci – Vocals
„Heavy Times“ is a real keyboard orientated song. Sometimes it remembers to Dream Theater, but in the end the last kick is missing as to remain as a firt class opener. The song „Forever young“ is much better, really catchy…a wonderful melodic one.
The rocking tracks are brilliant arranged. My recommendations are „Shout it Out“ with it’s great arrangements and especially „Starlight“….a killer track !!
This album was produced once again by Michael Bormann (Jaded Heart)..and he did a great work as we almost know it from him. The album is hard rock on higher spheres. If you are in Bonfire or Gotthard you sure will also love this album.
Summary I can say that „Eternity“ is a good follow up to „Sands in your Hands“…and we can have to keep Sahara Rain in our minds and see what follows next. Great work !!
Points: 7,5 / 10
