Knight Area - D Day (2019)

The seventh album from this Dutch band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

A guest musician added grand piano to the sound on one track.

This album is a concept album about WW2 as far as I gather. An interesting subject indeed.

The band started out as a neo-prog band and that is how they came to my attention.

Unfortunate for me, the band moved to progressive metal and that's where we find the band on this album.

D-Day is essentially a progressive heavy metal album. Well, forget the progressive tag here. Heavy metal is what this album is.

There is a lot of the normal heavy metal cliches here, starting with the normal heavy metal vocals. Then you got the guitar shredding too. 

The songs are not really that good either. The quality of the songs are decent and just that.

Heavy metal fans will like this album a lot, I guess. Fans of neo-prog can bypass this album and band now.
