In Heavens Eyes - Salvation

The hype has been building. Emerging in 2009, considering the amount of twists and turns, India's In Heavens Eyes have been backing up their persona with strong recorded material.

The seven tracks on the album show a band finding their own sound, yet showing the intense power of vocals, huge guitar riffs and a tight rhythm section.

From a great set of ears to a great set of lungs, Salvation sees the emotion and power in Rueban's vocals pushing it to a new level of dynamic singing. The transition from a hardcore song like "Jesus Power" to a soft song like "Return to reality" shows Rueban approaching an almost operatic texture and driving into a sweet and floating tone. However, "Purge your Soul" and "Wall of Jericho" shows Rueban experimenting with his voice where he creates a wonderful tension, as we never know if he is going to be whispering, singing or growling.

Salvation is neatly packaged into two sections, both surrounded and separated by quieter and heavier instrumentals. Section one, as I'll call it, includes "Sons Hymn", Purge your Soul" and "Return to Reality" that show a different side to the bands music. Drifting away from the metallic hardcore elements that the album begins with, these set of songs deliver an alternative element that grows into an astonishing climax half way through. Section two of the album includes "Salvation", "Jesus Power", "Wall of Jericho" and "The Cleansing". "Salvation" and "Wall of Jericho", which i consider the standout tracks without a doubt, bring out the true and definite sound to the band's music. The title track "Salvation" is in my opinion the best song on the record. The slow guitar and bass driven intro and the approach of the vocals manages to cause a steady build up in the song followed by a heavy dose of gang vocals and a crushing guitar section that makes your heart pound faster and later throws you into a frenzy of screaming the lyrics out loud. "Wall of Jericho" brings out the complexity and brilliance in the guitar section brought out by Joshua. It contains beautiful yet aggressive riffage and drumming following an epic finish.

All in All, I feel that In Heavens Eyes have achieved an album which is both brilliant and daring. Conceptually, the album is incredibly mature and a true work of art, but it's daring because it manages to be musically illuminating while retaining its heavy metal staples of screaming and angst.
