Out of the blue comes this progressive metal
feast from US of A. Suspyre has prior to this album released
one album 'The Silvery Image', which should be more in the power
metal vein. But this their second album is intense, diverse and
complex progressive metal all the way...
We are dealing with a conceptual piece divided
into 2 big Opus' entitled "Opus II: The Alignment of Galaxies"
(34:16) and "Opus III: The Origin of Curse" (36:05) - don't ask me
what happened to Opus I? Each Opus is divided into 6 parts, so we
get a total of 12 breathtaking songs.
The technical level is very high - just take a
listen to the brilliant almost 10 minutes long instrumental
"Galactic Backward Movements" to be convinced. Their sound and style
brings up some reminiscence of Eternity X - progressive metal with
some nice jazzy and classical inspired parts. Razor-sharp breaks,
pounding drums and a good vocal deliverance from
Clay Barton is just some the things that make this album
Into progressive metal? Then make sure this
album lands at your place any time soon, because this is absolutely
worth your attention and should please genre fans quite a bit.
