Founder and mastermind
behind Sun Caged Marcel Coenen have really shaken the line-up
up for this, the sophomore release from Sun Caged. He is the
only returning member from the self-titled debut album from 2003,
but not much has changed music wise in the camp.
'Artemisia' is progressive
metal packed with odd time signatures, complex chords and brilliant
guitar playing from Marcel Coenen. His playing on the album alone
makes this album interesting and enjoyable; his unique playing style
really comes to life on this album and should turn a few heads...
I wish I could go on
praising this album, but sadly I can't because I feel let down by
the very mediocre vocal deliverance from Paul Adrian Villarreal, who
in my opinion lacks power and range to push this album into the
champions league. The production and the songs have the quality to
take this album to higher places, but all parts of the puzzle are
equally important and a significant piece is sadly enough missing
This is still a good and
interesting album with a lot to offer progressive metal fans, and do
give this album a chance - maybe you like this kind of vocalists
more than me...
