Vox Tempus - 3 Song Advance Promotional Disc - reviewed by: Nailer
As the songs were written and recorded for the new album, the band went through several vocalists. Finally, after going through over a hundred submissions from throughout North America, the group finally settled on Dan Reed. In late 2002, during the tail end of the mixing process, drummer Eric Althaus chose to part ways with the band. In light of this, the band changed their name to Vox Tempus. To date, the current line up of Vox Tempus is Ray Mantor (guitar), Jim Turba (bass), Eric Ragno (keyboards), and Dan Reed (vocals).
There wasn't enough here in the samples to get a good handle on any choruses, but the song bits are friendy and Dan Reed's voice is similar to Styx' Dennis DeYoung minus the showtune quality with a bit of Dream Theater's James LaBrie. Man, can he hold a great clear note.
If these are any indication of a full CD, Vox Tempus has the skills and potential to be recognized. Their new full-length In the Eye of Time, is being released later this month by Progman Records.
