Vera : Swedish progressive metal band Evergrey – under guidance of Tom Englund – is already active since the nineties. Late January they will release their new album ‘The Atlantic’, while we were witness of their amazing concert at ProgPower EU early October. Now their current label AFM Records re-releases one by one their earlier albums.
‘Recreation Day’ was the third album of Evergrey, originally launched at the world by Inside Out on the 11th of March 2003. The album is remastered again by Jacob Hansen, the producer they are now working with and it includes three bonus tracks: live versions of ‘End Of Your Days’, ‘As I Lie Here Bleeding’ and the title track ‘Recreation Day’. The album is also released on vinyl now and that is good news for collectors! In order to be complete we also refer to our earlier review of ’Redemption Day’, so that readers will be aware of the fact that we are dealing with one of the top notch bands of the genre. In March 2019 Evergrey will tour with Kamelot.
