Beyond Twilight  


Led by keyboardist Finn Zierler, this Danish band started as Twilight in 1994, releasing two albums before deciding that a name modification was needed, thereafter going by Beyond Twilight. Members have come and gone through the years, including a few notables like restless vocalist Jřrn Lande (Ark, Masterplan, and others) and Invocator guitarist/leader Jacob Hansen. As evidenced on 2005's Section X, Beyond Twilight belong in the top tier of European progressive metal bands, playing that classic, familiar style pioneered by the greats like Dream Theater, though this band is far from a DT clone, as they are less technical and yet arguably a shade more adventurous, and there's a dark, symphonic tone here that gives them a harder edge. Zierler is a star, no question about, but though he he shines here, he doesn't overshadow the other players, all of whom also excel. Progressive metal has been a staple in the metal scene for years, and Beyond Twilight is one of the bands keeping that spirit alive and well.
