Redemption is a project led by one Nick Van Dyk, a relative unknown in the metal field up to now. He recruited an all-star lineup of prog/power metallists, including former Steel Prophet vocalist Rick Mythiasin, Symphony X drummer Jason Rullo, and Fates Warning guiltarist Bernie Versailles for his new band, and the first product of this new band is a self-titled album, featuring additional guest performances from other members of Fates Warning and Symphony X. Simply put, Redemption is a stellar prog/power metal album, with solid musicianship and arrangements, and Mythiasin sounding better here than he ever did in Steel Prophet. The band strikes the perfect balance between melodic progressive metal and dark power metal, with songs that have identity and mood in all the right places. Not many bands attempt 25-minute epics, and fewer succeed, but "Something Wicked This Way Comes", based on a Ray Bradbury novel, is outstanding, never failing to keep the listener's interest as it progresses from one section to the next. Redemption is the kind of album that restores faith in the view that a band can stick to a tried and true genre and yet still sound fresh and invigorating. This is a highly recommended album by a band that we hopefully haven't heard the last from.

Armed with a new band surrounding Van Dyk (the most recent addition being Fates Warning vocalist Ray Alder), a new album, The Fullness Of Time, has been released.
