Cornerstone
Once Upon Our Yesterdays (Escapi)

By: Mike SOS

Cornerstone is a progressive metal outfit that goes against the grain, allowing the masterful songwriting and not a virtuoso performance take charge. On the outfit's third release, the balance between atmospheric keyboards, shredding guitars, and stalwart vocals is firmly established, with each getting its rich desserts and proper credits throughout Once Upon Our Yesterdays. Songs like "Passion to Warfare" has the Dokken-era groove deep inside, while the acoustically driven "Some Have Dreams" screams power ballads sans the horrible hair-do. Majestic and meaty, allow Cornerstone the opportunity to rock you with both elegance and grit a la Dio and Deep Purple.
