Book Of Reflections – Chapter II:
Unfold The Future is a potent musically accomplished mix of
progressive metal and classic hard rock, showcasing strong
melodic sensibilities. Lyrically the album is varied
focusing on topics from distrust in the political world to a
celebration of life along with a couple of sad love songs.
“The idea was to continue where the first album ended and
take the music a few steps forward. The songs are a little
bit less predictable but easier to listen to. It was a long
journey as there are many musicians and singers involved.
The songs are all good songs with memorable choruses while
still not using too many cliché’s”.
The album is home to a number of top class musicians from
the Lion Music roster such as vocalists Bjorn Jansson (Tears
Of Anger) and Martin LeMar (Tomorrow’s Eve) who handle 3
songs each. In addition to Mattsson’s fiery fretwork is the
guitar talent of Anand Mahangoe (Sphere Of Souls, Solo).
Mistheria (Bruce Dickinson) contributes keyboard solos on 4
tracks whilst long time Mattsson collaborator Eddie
Sledgehammer plays drums. Mattsson himself handles all other
guitars, bass, keyboards and additional vocals.
This album was reissued in August 2014 in digital formats
exclusively with new vocals on five tracks (sung by Lars)
and much improved mixing.
