Review Tomorrow’s Outlook : A Voice Unheard [Album] 2018

Review

Tomorrow’s Outlook is a Heavy Metal band from The Arctic Northern Norway. It was formed in 2007 by Trond Nicolaisen and Andreas Stenseth, and as of 2018 the core line-up has added Øystein K. Hanssen.

Their  album A Voice Unheard is mixed by Roy Z (Bruce Dickinson, Halford, Judas Priest) and features 12 tracks of classic ‘80s heavy metal best described as a hybrid of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.

The band proudly worked with ‘The Norwegian Air Raid Siren’ Tony Johannessen (Thunderbolt) and the ‘German Metal God’ Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear, ex-Gamma Ray). Their amazing and varied voices really complement each other throughout the expressive spectrum of the new album.

Thematically, A Voice Unheard deals with the apocalypse, and to make the horrific nightmare come alive the band has been working with two supreme voice actors; British actor Danny Webb, of Alien 3 fame, and American actor Jamieson Price, whose deep and booming voice has been heard in numerous anime and video games.

The band is paying tribute to some of their greatest influences with two cover tracks; Bruce Dickinson’s “Darkside Of Aquarius” and Aria’s “Slave To The Evil Force”. Both tracks were recorded in collaboration with two of the leading members of Aria, Russia’s biggest and most famous heavy metal band.

Following the release of A ”Voice Unheard” the core members plan on forming a full line-up and taking Tomorrow’s Outlook to the stage, with the express purpose of melting faces all over the world. They’ve also commenced work on the next album.

A Voice Unheard is available for pre-order through the Australian label Battlegod Productions.

Tracks follows with a slower riff before settling into a sort of denser Heavy Metal with the catchy hook harpooning the listener immediately and whilst the bands approach seems to come across as simple the results are extremely effective as the song pulses with energy. I must admit that the vocals reminded me of Maiden’s Bruce  to that clean narrated tone style. I am sure some will give this a wide berth based on my review but I found the ten songs on the album extremely interesting, captivating and thoroughly accomplished which I am sure you will do too if you check it out.
