review by Sara "Shadow Lady" De Vita____
A prog of fine birth: a hymn to the classical and melodic sound of the greatest progers of the past!!!
artists…six minds…six musical ideas that interwine and melt giving
proof of extreme professionality technique and originality.
Nothing already listened to: a work minutely studied and varied. A sound remembering the musicality of the first Symphony X… reshaped and adapted on a more modern and less classical musical framework.
good: the time variations, the hypnotic riffs, with keyboard-
plays and rhythms that surrond and tie a heterogeneity of intents.
impact has Failure, a driving song developed on a complex
substrate of flexible rhythms that play to rise with guitars and
keyboards at first extremely fast and then more modulated, recreating a pathos
of pure genius.
in its evolutive structure is Crimson Night: a decided sound,
where the guitars smooth out, modeling to an extremely fluid bass
of stop’n go, mid tempo and sound slips that give chase to each other
in a spiral of perfect melody…delicate, complex... where the lyrics
set with marvellous and intense expressivity.
Night is the better song of the album…exquisite (there is a fine
will to astonish through the unexpected).
be an old-fashioned romantic soul, yet Blue Portrait literally moved me
to tears and brought me to my metal birth, when I was ignorant of such
powerful melodies; a delicate ballad with a melancholic accent lulling
the mind in a sweet flow of romantic sensations.
we gave rest to the ear, the race starts again in Turkish.
continuous rebounding of guitars, bass and drums, chased by a keyboard
that almost plays as the “voice”, leading this caravan of insane
and explosive sounds that develop in hints of personalizations of true
classical “juicy pieces”,
almost to tease us that listen in astonishment, never understanding the
true reason of this song…
…well, in my opinion, there is none: it is simply a game made
to surprise us and to entertain, in this way revealing, however, the ability
of an uncommon band.
are a flower that just bloomed in the metal garden; a flower wth bright
colours and exciting fragrance. We have to cultivate it: one day it
could represent the elegance in an always modern genre.
