As probably the best German live band Errorhead could convince with "Organic Pill" two years ago for the first time in the studio. Once started as a rather instrumental project, Andrew Gräser gave them an expressive voice. The fact that the singer has left at his own request in the meantime hit the band in the middle of the recordings. The new man on the microphone is named Martin Stiers and is actually an enrichment for Errorhead. His voice is powerful and especially on AOR-compatible songs like "Thieves And Poets" he gives you goose bumps. That's what the extraordinary guitar playing of songwriter Marcus Deml is responsible for. With the bluesy piece "Tell Me" or the instrumental track "Purple Lord" he has exactly the platform on which he can spread his virtuoso playing. Compared to its predecessor, the band looks more compact on "Evolution". The diverse and sometimes contradictory influences lead to an independent sound, to which the well-rehearsed, often funk-oriented rhythm crew with bassist Frank Itt and drummer Zacky Tsoukas contributes decisively.
