Zeno - Runway To The Gods (2006) [Japanese Ed.]
"Runway to the Gods" is the latest `Zeno' album to date, originally released in 2006. For those who are familiar Zeno's previous works, the man is nothing less than a musical genius; having put out such albums as the definitive "zenology" and the absolutely unsurpassable "Listen to the light".
So how can Zeno follow an album which is arguably the peak of composing, performing and recording creativity? Simply by going back to melodic Hard Rock basics with "Runway...". It has to be clarified that this release does not have the overall rock opera texture (the orchestra, the multiple guitar layers, the theatrical vocal performances) ; Instead Zeno concentrates on his stellar lead guitar work, dynamic drumming smooth bass lines and really active keyboards. Non the less, the wizard has an ace up his sleeve in the name of Michael Bormann. Amongst the top two leading Melodic Hard rock voices in Germany, Bormann (ex Jaded Heart, Bloodbound, Redrum) sings throughout this fantastic album.
"Fanfares of love", "Climb the sky", "Refugees", "I feel, I live", "Land of illusion" are masterpieces of Pomp AOR/Melodic Hard Rock. While it would have been easy for the composer to recreate the formula of "Listen to the light" (a mega seller in Japan) Zeno verifies with "Runway..." that he is by no means restricted by any rock idiom while remaining adamant in not making the same album twice. ~ By Nikiforos V.
