"Complementing this spring's "Wonderland", "Infinity" brings us back Seventh Crystal sooner than we expected."

Eight months after their second album "Wonderland", Seventh Crystal present us with a five-track EP entitled "Infinity". Featuring a highly successful cover, it completes this spring's LP with the twenty minutes that it would have stood up to - its moderate length having made its followers wince. 

The tracks were recorded during the recording sessions for "Wonderland". Seventh Crystal judged that they exuded a different fragrance to the tracks on offer this spring, and decided that they should be delivered separately. Listening to the work, this otherness is not immediately apparent. At most, the three punchy compositions are possibly a little heavier than Seventh Crystal's usual offerings.

The rhythmic modulations of the eponymous track, its oriental bridge, its synth solo and its beautiful, catchy melodies immediately seduce the listener. More hectic, faster-paced, 'Ready Set Go!' and its catchy piano notes will satisfy Eclipse fans. As for 'Silence', it charms with its percussive backing vocals and high tempo, and intrigues with its surprising sound cuts. All that's left for the fan is to enjoy 'Rivals', the pretty piano/voice ballad, and to revel in 'Memory Lane', a mid-tempo with the arena rock flavors and pop strains that frequently accompany modern melodic metal today.

Infinity" is a great success. So let's forget the debate that may arise from this annual double-bill and simply enjoy this complementary opus.

MELODIC METAL - "Bleed Out" takes over the "Wireless" EP released in May, and sees Within Temptation toughen up his music and his message.
LAMBERT: Bon Courage (2023)
ATMOSPHERIC ROCK - Eight years after the release of "Drachenreise", Lambert keeps the flame alive with "Bon Courage", continuing a work that is anything but outdated, in the tradition of the masters of 70s-80s electronic music.
