The Tide Turns

Sideproject from Fabio Ribeiro from Shaman, who together with some very talented guitarists: Kiko Loureiro (Angra), Hugo Mariutti (Shaman), Eduardo Ardanuy (Dr. Sin) and Ze Renato (A Farsa) takes part on this instrumental metal album.

There is really many keyboard passages on this album, and to be honest not a whole lot of interesting parts ... and to make things worse in my book, they have an awful lot of saxophone on here as well. There is some very nice flute parts on and they are clearly among the best parts on this album.

I have now listened to this album 5 or 6 times and still nothing stands out, the album is well produced,  the musicianship is clearly above average, but the songs are simply too similiar and a tad boring in the long run.
