Condition Red mixes progressive metal with hard rock,
neoclassical and fusion. The new album, simply entitled
Condition Red II, is quite different from what the band did on
their self-titled first album, even though some elements are
still present. This time all vocals are handled by Ella
Grussner who also plays some killer violin on a few spots on
the album. Drums are played by Gerald Kloos who is a member of
Empire (featuring Neil Murray, Tony Martin, Don Airey and Rolf
Munkes) guitars are once again played by Lars Eric Mattsson
and Alex Masi. Alexander King returns on keyboards just like
on the first album. Condition Red II contains 13 songs, of
which some are shorter instrumental interludes - and no song
is over 7 minutes, unlike on the first album where the focus
was on three very long pieces (and three shorter).
This album was reissued in March 2014 as download
exclusively with much improved mixing and partly new vocals
on yje songs "Why Won't You Hear Me" and "Eye of the Storm"
due to the fact that the original files had been lost.
