Finnish Heavy/Progressive Metal outfit RETURN TO VOID is back with its sophomore release, titled "Memory Shift: The Day After".
A mixture of traditional Heavy Metal and Hard Rock with Progressive elements wonderfully blend in together to create a melodic and hard-hitting result! This second offering by RETURN TO VOID is definitely heavier than the band’s debut album (released in 2017) while still exploring the Progressive realm even more producing a simply mesmerizing result!
Formed in 2015, RETURN TO VOID initially started as an acoustic tribute band to Bruce Dickinson’s solo material (under the moniker DICK & SONS) but it didn’t take long for the band members, all of them accomplished musicians, to decide that it was time to take a more creative and original path. However, upon listening to Markku Pihlaja's vocals, one can very easily understand those first steps in that tribute band...
"Memory Shift: The Day After" sees the band refining its sound and style even more as it is clearly vastly improved in all aspects, from musicianship and performance to production. The album was recorded and mixed at Railroad Studios and mastered by Steve Kitch at Audiomaster Studio (UK).

An absolutely beautiful composition through and through. The riffs and melodies are so tight and well crafted, with soaring lyrics that pull the whole story together. When I first heard Across the Ancient Dessert, I stopped what I was doing and my heart skipped a beat. I think it encapsulated every emotion I had reading the Chain of Dogs for the first time. That series means something special to me. I was already loving the album, and this song sold me immediately. This is really worth a listen. kapman
