A Leap Through Matter

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (2 Votes)

If you like '70s hard rock/proto-metal, Norway's Flight has an album for you. A Leap Through Matter is the second full-length from the band and it accurately captures the sounds of the time when the hard rock of the '70s was transitioning to the NWOBHM of the early '80s. The singer doesn't try to overdo anything, he just turns in a solid performance and the guitarists prefer to let the solos do the talking and keep the riff patterns simple. Flight's songwriting is more from the time of big clouds of hazy smoke rising from the crowd than fists and horns in the air. Clearly, this isn't the heaviest stuff but songs like "Reviving Waves" are no less fun because of that. Frankly, I wish more of A Leap Through Matter had the energy of "Reviving Waves" as some of the songs are a little nondescript, though well played. For fans of '70s icons like Uriah Heep and KISS as well as NWOBHM bands like Tokyo Blade and Witch Cross.
