Overall Rating: 7.0

The story of Spearfish started early in the 1990. Today's lineup consists of Thomas Thulin (bass, vocals), Johan Sterner (drums) and Peter Lundin (guitars). Spearfish draws it influences from the days it started. There are definite influences from hard rock metal from the eighties and beginning of the nineties.

The composing on this album is very consistent and even, even to the point of where it starts to bother. The highlight of this album would be the opener ”Fate”, but I find the cover song ”Limelight” from Rush, to be the pinnacle of this album. Actually, Thulin's very original singing voice has some qualities that reminds of Geddy Lee. Playing-wise, Spearfish is a tight rock band and most likely belongs to category ”they're better live”.

Production is the number one -problem on Area 605. To be exact, the mastering is done very poorly. The distortion is constantly audible and the peak leds are on the red more than on green. I really have to wonder how this kind of mastering has found its way to final product, especially, because the mixing seems to be okay and the actual instrument sounds are right on spot for the genre.

This album was quite painful to listen due to mastering faults. I'd recommend to listen this album before you buy this album. The songs could be worth the money, the production not.
