4 stars Affector is one of the most intresting prog metal bands I've heared lately, is a multi-national band with well known musicins involved in. The drummer from Neal Morse band, the excellent vocalist Ted Leonard from Enchant and Thought Chamber fame, the bass player from Symphony X - Mike Lepond and no more then 3 keybordists, all top notch musicins Alex Argento, Jordan Rudess, Derek Sherinian + famous Neam Morse and guitarist Daliel Fries all 5 stars musicians, so what about the music. The instrumental parts are killer, skillful passages, technical arrangements all melted in a very convincing manner for all prog metal fans. Their first album released in fall on 2012 named Harmagedon is a conceptual album based upon biblical apocalypse. As I said, the instrumental sections are impressive, fast solos, inventive keyboards parts, very complicated druming and above all some truly awesome vocal lines from Ted Leonard, what a great vocalist he is. Some highlights for me , the instrumental Overture pt.2: Prologue, nice, comlicated prog metal with melodic lines and awesome musicianship, The Rapture or the title track are excellent prog metal pieces that proves right from this debut that Affector mean bussines in this field. All in all more then a succesful first album from Affector, I like all the pieces big time, is the type of prog metal that I like very much. Long track, with elaborated quirky arrangements, top notch performance and ideas. For me 4 stars for sure, definetly I'll keep an eye on this band in the future, worth to be discovered by many prog metal fans as possible.
