Almost 6 years after their debut album, “34613”, Tomorrow’s Outlook are back with their sophomore release entitled “A Voice Unheard”. The band was initially formed by Trond Nicolaisen (manager & songwriter) and Andreas Stenseth (bass & songwriting) and they were afterwards joined by lead guitarist Øystein K. Hanssen (Cyclophonia).
This time Tomorrow’s Outlook has enlisted two vocalists for the tracks that are vocally different to one another. The first is the renowned Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) and the other is Tony “Thunder” Johannessen (Thunderbolt).
Having two different singers means that there will be some kind of music diversity on the album from track to track. Indeed, the tracks that Ralf sings (1, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10) are more in the Judas Priest vein, while the other ones, that Tony sings are into the Iron Maiden field. Either way you see it, there’s a variety on the album that is not bad at all… it’s like the album has two different sides, like a vinyl let’s say.
Apart from the two vocalists, there are also some other guests on the album: Terry Gorle on guitars, Andreas Angell on vocals, Jamieson Price and Danny Webb on voice over, Andreas Nergård on drum & keys, Scott Oliva on vocals, Vitaly Dubinin on bass and Maxim Udalov on drums.
The album was mixed by Roy Z (Bruce Dickinson, Halford, Judas Priest) and mastered by Colin Davis (Vile, Dawnbringer etc.). The final outcome is heavy and a bit “sharp”. The melodic leads, the heavy riffs along with the nice hooks are the very essence of “A Voice Unheard”… a well-written and produced album that embraces heavy metal music on the whole.
Tomorrow’s Outlook aims to form a full lineup, so as to start touring and to become an actual band. Either way you see it, I think the metal community needs passionate and talented bands like Tomorrow’s Outlook that serve heavy metal music and have a vision for the future.
