There are a lot of half-assed groups pushing themselves as serious progressive metal. Tomorrow’s Eve are not one of those groups. With Mirror Of Creation III – Project Ikaros, Tomorrow’s Eve show a force of palpable danger and intelligent wordplay at full force. Check out “Bread and Circuses,” a heavy track that slaps with a great instrumental behind it.

While the album drops May 25, the band has already posted a teaser of their upcoming work, for fans and future listeners alike.

Though the album preview clocks in at eleven songs cut far too short, one story presents itself. The album – promising “versatility” – flows as if sculpted from one piece… and promises to hit you like a fresh, bloody sledge-hammer.

Sure, they aren’t exactly a band for everyone, but neither were System of A Down, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Anthrax, or heavy metal godfathers, Steppenwolf. Not exactly the worst company for a band to be in, in my opinion.

The only downside so far is the lack of work released… but the album is enough for a metal fan to get a good feeling of the group. “Bread and Circuses” certainly had my attention.
