Make no mistake, we're not talking clumsy overdubbing into a second language. The English vocals are spot on in diction, clarity, and expressiveness. It gives you pause: Why has this world-class band has been laboring on the periphery for so long? It's obvious from the moment their CDs spin that AON writes good, no, great songs. They are meticulous in the recording arts. Their punches are tight, their stops clean, and their changes well conceived. These are musicians.
Age of Nemesis takes its rightful place in a noble
tradition. The band arises from a musical lineage that
includes Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Deep Purple,
Dream Theater, Steve Morse, Steve Lukather, Keith
Emerson, and Simon Phillips.
In 1997 the first version of Age Of Nemesis appeared in Hungary. From the start they displayed worldly influences yet lacked a musical milieu in which to thrive. Most of the band was forced to retain day gigs to support their habit. In fact, at present two in the ranks of Age of Nemesis count themselves as accredited machine designers—possibly accounting for those squeaky-clean mixes and arrangements!
“I think there’s a big place for Age of Nemesis,” observes Magna Carta founder Pete Morticelli. “The reason is that there aren’t too many groups in this genre as skilled as these guys. And their music is simply great.” Indeed, there is something of great power, and something universal, that results from the skilled musicianship and attention to detail exhibited by this Hungarian band. Their place on the world stage is assured
