Vanishing Point

in thought

(SKAN 8216.AR)

Innerhalb von nur 2 Jahren ist es der Band Vanishing Point gelungen, durch ihre eindrucksvolle Liveshows zum populärsten Melodic Metal Act in Australien zu werden. Die positive Resonanz ermutigt die Band, nun endlich ihre Debüt CD "in thought" zu präsentieren. Und prompt wurde das Album von Austaliens bekanntester Metalradiosendung 'Demon Night' zum besten australischen Metal Album des Jahres gewählt!

Vanishing Point's Debütwerk ist deutlich mehr als nur ein exzellentes Album. "in thought" deckt den gesamten Bereich melodiösen, symphonischen Metals durch seinen außergewöhnlichen Sound ab und verblüfft den Hörer durch seine ungewohnte Vielseitigkeit. Sowohl der äußerst variable Gesang als auch die kraftvolle Instrumentalfraktion wissen Anhänger von Bands wie. Dream Theater, Fates Warning und Queensryche zu begeistern.

Vanishing Point steuern mit ihrem Album dem Genre Progressive Power Metal eine ganz neue Facette bei. "Diese Band könnte zur größten Entdeckung aus Downunder werden!" ist nur ein Zitat aus den enthusiastischen ersten Reaktionen der Heavy Metal Presse.

"in thought" - ein unglaublich reifes Album der neuen Melodic Metal Meister!

The day started well with a long line of young blooded Metalheads lining up outside the venue for the first ever METAL WARRIORS - HALLOWEEN METALFEST. This was the first under age show and it proved quite successful.

However, the highlight was the ProgPower night. The venue closed the doors due to what they called a Full House. We feel that there was still room for a fair number of fans but unfortunately that was the way it turned out. We also had a special guest from our German office, Marion Riedl (Welcome to Australia). We sincerely apologise to anybody who missed out on getting in. It's been a long, long time since the prestigious HiFi has had such a big turnout. We will now seriously look into taking it outdoors in 2000.

The nights favourite was Vanishing Point, the crowd cheered and sang along to the songs. They put on a tight, graceful and perfect performance. Gary Carson from Screaming Symphony seemed to be in heaven singing along to every song of Vanishing Point (Thanks for the great night of music on the DJ desk Gary). Daniel from Modern Invasion called it "beautiful", fancy that coming from the leader of the Extreme Metal scene here in OZ! He wants to organise a show for Vanishing Point to be play alongside a number of his finest Extreme Metal acts like Destroyer and a few other Melodic Metal bands for a big mix of Metal. Let us know what you think.

Dungeon? Well, we have heard so much about this Sydney band and they finally blasted the place with their very own brand of Classic/Power Metal. Huge, they were up there with Vanishing Point and have definitely scored themselves a legion of fans in Melbourne, many saying that they were the best Traditional styled Metal band they had seen come out of this country. Expect big things from Dungeon!

Amethyst was the other highlight. Liz put on a splendid performance with her outstanding voice and Joel from Taramis got up to do a few songs with some of his former Taramis members. That would have brought back many good memories. Amethyst is a band to look out for as is Sanitys Cage who put on a fine performance which was very entertaining. Give them one or two years and they'll be up there amongst the best of them. Eyefear and Titanium also put on great shows making it a very classy night for all. We all had a big night despite being drained from all the work. Magz, Peter Fundeis and myself would like to thank you all for making the night so big!
