To my ears, this is not near the level of "V" but you can certainly hear the talent at work. It just hasn't quite gelled yet. And they have a sound that is uniquely their own, which is also rare.
Favorite track: Iron Dream (In Memoriam: Peter Steele).
Australian band VOYAGER s loyal international fanbase has praised its incredibly catchy songwriting and compared its sound to a mixture of AMORPHIS' thirst for melody, SOILWORK's heaviness and the crystal vocal clarity of A-HA's Morton Harket. Their 4th album is a dark, heavy, introspective, at times electronic, yet often uplifting journey into the mind in search of meaning. "The Meaning Of I" is a culmination of VOYAGER's sound: polished yet organic, heavy yet melodic, dark yet playful. The album was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (OPETH, SOILWORK). Special guest vocal performances by Dan Tompkins (TESSERACT) and DC Cooper (ROYAL HUNT). Surrealist artist George Grie provided the gripping cover art.
