Kingfisher Sky – “Arms of Morpheus” (2014)

Label: Suburban Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Wow! The new album from Dutch prog metallers Kingfisher Sky is pretty freakin’ good. Their 3rd album “Arms of Morpheus” continues on the bands progressive/folk-ish path which began with their 2007 debut “Hallway of Dreams” and things just keep getting better and better.

Opening with “Hypnos”, this is a great moody track with changing tempos and a bit of a dramatic vibe; this is a good way to start things. From there we go into “At Least You Tried” continues the album on a positive course. “King of Thieves” is the first single and features a good amount of symphonic and folk elements to go with the prog. Other highlights include: “Open Your Eyes”, “Strength of the Endless” and “The Morrigan”. Kingfisher Sky has got so much to offer in terms of writing, musicianship and talent. With “Arms of Morpheus” the band continues to move forward and progress.

Rating – 88/100
