Rock In Review / Rating 8/10 Review by Megaloud

EMPYRIA are a criminally underrated prog metal band hailing from Canada. It's been eighteen years since the band arrived on the scene and since then they have been constantly touring, writing and recording and have released a few stellar albums. It's been seven long years since the last album 2002's SENSE OF MIND, which saw the band loose some fans for lack of their usual prog sound. Sounding refreshed and hungry again, 2009's THE LONG ROAD HOME is back to the sound they do best and is the best album of their career to date.

Whilst this is definitely a progressive metal release, it's still quite accessable to the casual metal listener as there is no over the top epics and as a matter of fact the longest song on the album is the seven minute closing track RETURNING HOME. Some of the highlight tracks are FALSE WITNESS, WITHOUT WITHIN, THE ENDLES CIRCLE and personal favourite LAST RITES.

Vocalist PHIL LEITE has a great voice for this type of stuff and sounds like a mix of GEOFF TATE and OZZY OSBOURNE.
The rest of the band all sound great and are all obviously very technically gifted musicians.

The songwriting is tight and to the point, with just enough space in each track for some prog goodness without going into wankery territory.

This a great album by a band that seemed to have dissapeared off the radar and should help them regain their lost ground and hopefully get the recognition they deserve. Good purchase for fans of ILLUSION SUITE and CIRCUS MAXIMUS.

Excellent and powerful production with a futuristic but awesome looking cover / back artwork… honestly and sincere, “The Long Road Home” is a fantastic piece of Prog / Power Metal that should be picked up by both US and Progressive Power Metal addicts. Great vocals, excellent song structures, technical skills, sometimes catchy – sometimes hard to the bone… go check them out and order right on (see this as a good advice!). www.myspace.com/empyria
