Zeitgeist - _The Eyes of Time_
by: Brian Meloon (3 out of 5)
Zeitgeist are a progmetal/rock band from California, who just released this 8-track indie album on CD. The songs however, were recorded in 1993 and 1994, and therefore have a dated feel to them. The poor production adds to this, as the level is very low, although the relative levels of the instruments is good. The performances are good, though not terribly exciting. They do a couple of nice instrumental breaks in their songs, with some good guitar solos, and a fair amount of changing tempos and feels. Their overall sound is a late 80s progmetal sound, mixed with some 'classic rock' influences (such as Boston or the Doobie Brothers). The last three tracks here are from their 1993 demo, and are more metallic, while the five newer tracks feature more of the classic rock influence. As you might have guessed, I prefer the older tracks, although my favorite track ("The Firing Line") is one of the newer ones... They show some potential, but they need to find their own voice, and move away from their more commercial side to realize their full potential, IMO.
