"Last Autumn's Dream is back! Like a phoenix rising from its ashes under a new name, this "Zenith" concocted by Autumn's Child is a real return to the origins."

It's already been three years since Last Autumn's Dream closed its doors. The announced break starts to be long and the release of the third opus of Autumn's Child, a parallel project of the famous AOR combo, leaves little doubt: Last Autumn's Dream is not likely to come out of oblivion any time soon. But in the end, it doesn't matter, the listener had realized it as soon as the offspring was born, the titles coming out of the imagination of the new crew could very well have been created by its elder brother. 

"Angel's Gate", the second opus of the combo, had brought in its introduction two misleading titles which could let believe that Mickael Erlandsson, the captain of the ship, had decided to harden the tone of the AOR that he proposes since the beginnings of Last Autumn's Dream. If it also starts on the beat, "Zenith", unlike its predecessor, only slows down the rhythm for the few ballads that punctuate the work. 

Erlandsson knows for a long time how to make addictive any composition he works on. This hits creator has been splashing us with memorable melodies for almost twenty years now. He reaches here the heights of his art, making the title of his new album predestined. "Zenith" is a monument of melodiousness, magnified by guitars calibrated to perfection. The quality of the harmonic flights is obviously the outstanding constant of this third production of Autumn's Child

Among the eleven pearls offered on this little jewel, we find strong hard melo  ('Emmergency'), pop rock worthy of the Flashdance soundtrack ('Love Is A Fighter'), and the Celtic accents of Ten's ballads ('Nightingale'), but also allusions to Eddie Van Halen and Europe ('Never Say Die'), almost southern rock ('Crowdpleaser'), cheaptrick hard rock ('Don't Wanna'), and FM hard rock with a hint of old-time synths ('Evangeline').
 
Autumn's Child is no longer a project. Affirming with this "Zenith" their intentions to exist in a full and complete way, the combo imposes itself as the worthy successor of Last Autumn's Dream. The evolutionary interest of the approach does not appear to be of the most obvious logic, but it does not matter: it is enough to simply enjoy today this phoenix which was reborn from its ashes under a different name.

OTHER REVIEWS
LUCIFER: Lucifer Iv (2021)
HEAVY METAL - In spite of a flawless mastery at the service of good songs and a discreet will to darken the subject, "Lucifer IV" does not surprise even if Lucifer keeps his seductive and indomitable force.
OUTRUN THE SUNLIGHT: A Vast Field Of Silence (2021)
POST METAL - "A Vast Field of Silence" is a beautiful demonstration of mastery in a demanding style, the instrumental post-metal.
