Adding flavor to the mix is the borrowed talents of vocalists such as Harry Hess, Robin Beck, Erik Martensson and Micheal Bormann amongst others. The comparisons come to mind because projects like Voices Of Rock and Worldstage shared it’s time in the limelight as many fans of the genre dug both of those records.
Chu and Olsen return for some sublime orchestral work before the band return for final song ‘Rebirthing’. A great way to finish a show and judging by the smiles on the faces of band and audience alike a triumphant debut headline show for the band as well. Don’t be surprised to see Skillet headlining a venue 3-4 times the size of the Academy within the next 12 months.
The end result is tight and keen on it’s predecessor but I’m not sure is better or worse then their debut. It does feel like the songwriting is stronger and the overall vibe is more mature as well as the production. Really looking forward to see what this project will come up next further down the line.
