Final Conflict

Another Moment in Time DVD

Review by Mark Johnson

As with any live album, the mission is to try to capture on film, the excitement of a live performance. Bring this live performance to your fans as a keepsake and memory, especially for those that live on other continents around the world who may never get a chance to see the band live. You want to give the fans the kind of experience that will motivate them to want to come and see a show. It should be special and provide as much power as you can muster.

Since it’s their first live DVD it needed to be special.. The DVD package also includes interviews, a discography, biography, photo gallery, desktop images, and web links.

The music is classic neo prog, whether they like the label or not. Although it is similar, they add to the genre with their ability to integrate two powerful guitarists and lead vocalists, which most of the other bands in the genre handle with only one of each. They definitely belong near the top of the neo prog genre and are now a band that I will follow in the future, especially after listening to the interviews on this DVD and hearing of the influence of the new younger members of the band.. They hopefully will add to the power and brilliance of the founding members. I am currently investigating their past work and will definitely be interested in the new album when it comes out.

Overall, this is a very good video with lots of action and band camaraderie. The music is traditional neo prog, but delivered in a way that makes you feel like you are part of the show.
