Brilliant U.S. Progressive metal. Four years after the release of the debut album Beyond Tomorrow Ion Vein unleash the long awaited follow-up 'Reigning Memories'. Realising the bar had to be raised in all areas, the band approached producer Neil Kernon (Queenryche / Judas Priest) to capture the live power of the band. Blistering guitar work and huge progressive metal arrangements combine to move Ion Vein into the Symphonic / Progressive top flight. Now & Then. 2005.
