Prog-rock fans have been waiting patiently since 2009 for UK rockers, Order of Voices, follow-up to their self-titled debut album. Well folks, the wait is over and let the rejoicing begin. Released March 13, 2017 Constancy is everything we were hoping to get. They took their time and we are reaping the benefits of their growth and life experiences.
While this album leans more to the rock side of things, there are enough progressive elements to keep the prog fans happy. Take for instance the exquisite guitar line from the entrancing track “Speak Aloud,” that seamlessly flows into the next song “Affirmation.” Though “Affirmation” quickly changes tempo, with the guitar line from “Speak Aloud” hanging in the background, the two songs almost become one and the brilliance of the writing is evident.
Order of Voices has a way of using their music to take the listener on their journey while having it keeping relatable to each individual. The incredible mix of beautiful melodies, blended with both calming and at times aggressive tempos, makes this album something for everyone to enjoy.
