Titled “Mirror Of Creation III – Project Ikaros“, the German Progressive Metal institution TOMORROW‘S EVE start their comeback with their fifth album, which could not be more majestic, varied and bombastic and shows the band on the peak of its creativity so far. An extravagant musical journey of a special kind not only awaits fans of powerful driven forward Progressive Metal, but also fans of orchestral epics, which are refined by chaotic aggressive keyboards, but never neglect the melodies. The ‘Mirror Of Creation‘ provides complex song structures that demand the listener, but alternate recursively with catchy choruses and shallow sounds. Musically, a driving rhythm section, sensitive piano passages, acoustic guitars and extensive musical landscapes merge with the lyrical concept of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. With “Mirror Of Creation III – Project Ikaros”, the band once again succeeds in strengthening their reputation and this is evident in the eleven songs in all respects. The opener “Welcome To The Show” describes how the hall darkens and the show is starting. This shows uncompromisingly into which musical realm TOMORROW’S EVE will venture out. “Morpheus” depicts the tragedy of insomnia and the characters pursued nightmares, while “Bread And Circuses” directs to the topic of the past and raises the question if humanity will ever be able to learn from failures of the past.  “Imago” illustrates that fear can be the key to insanity, privacy and individuality are just a few of the dying values. “The System”, a song that mentally raises the idea, if it would be not even more appropriate for humanity to end up wiping itself out for the sake of humanity itself. “Dream Within A Dream” describes the battle against this very mechanized system. However, the poem found in the song ensures that the endless cycle of the system can be finally revealed in “Somnium Ex Machina”.
