After their good debut record ''Shade in the Light' this Greek progressive band
delivers this new album just in time for Christmas. If you still have some money
left, in this year of the Euro (Greek)-crisis and high debts, I can recommend
you to try this one out. With a new vocalist; Aris Pirris they serve us high
standard progressive metal songs which have similarities with bands like Dream
Theater and Pain of Salvation, but is never sounds-a-like copy.
singer Aris sounds a little bit like James LaBrie in the mid section, but his
voice is very powerful even in the higher regions. Sometimes the music reminds
me of the DT - Awake-period, but the song writing and the arrangements are more
in Pain of Salvation style. They easily change from heavy riffs into more
melodic passages. The very tight drumming and bass work finishes it off. It is
not that this band explores the genre even more, but they have just written some
excellent and well arranged songs, no virtuosic stuff, it is all done just in
the interest of the songs.
