Mind’s Doors is a Symphonic, Progressive, Melodic Rock band from Alicante, Spain. The band consists of Alberto Abeledo – Guitarra, César Alcaraz – Voz, Jose Bernabeu – Batería, Marcos Beviá – Teclados and Eloy Romero – Bajo.
Over the course of the last five years, more so in the last two years, I have noticed a lot of brilliant bands that have come out of Spain and received quite a bit of those bands music in that period of two years. Mind’s Doors is one of those bands that you have to listen to their The Edge Of The World several times to get full appreciation of it, that I what I did. Like I normally do, I put on the album, to get my initial thoughts of it, and I found that I couldn’t turn it off and the album drew me in and made me listen, with that being said, there has only been a few bands that actually have managed to do that, but there has been a lot of bands that have come close and made me listen without myself getting up (whilst still listen) and go into the next room.
So, when I finished listening to the album for the first time, and after I got my thoughts together about the album, I started to listening to it again, as it is one of those albums that keeps you hooked and want to listen to it again and again.
The track listings: A Warm Nest, Hollow Days, Koma, Sweet Dreams, The Light, Endless Nights, Victoria and The Edge Of The World.
Over the course of the album, there is some really good songs that stood out for me and they are A Warm Nest, as this song is an epic twelve minute plus song, and has some cool guitar riffs right from the get go, and they continue throughout the song, and there is sweet drumming on this song as well, the tempo of the music on this track fits the singing brilliantly, as everything on this isn’t overpowering each other.
Another song that stood out for me is Hollow Days, this song starts off with a brilliant piano intro, and it continues throughout the song and it is accompanied with a brilliant bass line, and some good acoustic guitar, the drumming is on point and the vocals are really good, there is some sweet electric guitar solos and riffs.
Koma is another good stand out song, as this song has a heavier tone to it, compared to the first two tracks, the drums are more aggressive and the guitars have a slightly distorted edge to them, there is some cool keys on this and they add some richness to the song, this is a brilliant instrumental and is one of my favourites of the album.
Sweet Dreams is another good song, and like Koma, it has a more aggressive sound, this has some cool drums as they drive the song along really well, the vocals are on point, there is some really good guitars, bass and keys here, the song overall is absolutely brilliant.
Endless Nights is another good track, this song is the shortest on the album coming just under three minutes, it has a haunting vibe to it with the guitars, bass, and with the keys. Victoria is another stand out song for me, it starts out out very atmospheric, with the haunting piano and slow paced bass, there is a cool little bass riffs, the vocals are on point, and this is a must listen to song, to get the full effect of how haunting this song is.
The last track on the album is the title song The Edge Of The World, this is another stand out song, as this has some cool guitars and drums, there is a brilliant bass solo about a third of the way through and is accompanied by the keys and they make the song really enjoyable to listen to, and after the guitars kick back in, the vocals are good and on point, and this has to be another favourite song off the album.
What more can I say about Mind’s Doors, other than they have created something special here on The Edge Of The World album. This album is a must listen to album. So if you are looking for something new or you are into the Symphonic, Melodic Rock and Progressive genres, then you are going to love Mind’s Doors, and I would highly recommend that you go and check out the band on their Facebook page.
I would give Mind’s Doors and their The Edge Of The World album a 4.5 out of 5, for a superb album
