Flash Range - On The Way (2009)
The debut EP from this English band and the only sign of life from them.
The name may be new. But this is.. or was a cooperation between three IQ, Kino, Jadis, It Bites and Arena members.
It would not come as a surprise if the music on this 18 minutes long EP was neo-prog. And it is indeed a fully blooded neo-prog we get here. All the above mentioned bands above is solid good references.
There are four songs here. The vocals are very good and ditto for the guitars, keyboards, drums and bass too.
The songs are OK. Well, somewhere between good and decent throughout. There is no excitement to be found here. Hence, this band only released an EP because this music was so similar to the other bands and that there was no room for this band in the scene. That is my guess.
This is a decent to good EP which fans of the above mentioned bands should check out.
