3 stars Once again, Germany has produced another amazing, yet totally obscure and (sadly) unheard of progressive metal band, this one going by the name of Atmosfear.

Released six years after their debut three-track single, 'Inside the Atmosphere' could be accused of being another 'generic prog metal' album. And whilst I agree that there isn't really anything new or innovative here... why does there need to be?

While crunchy, heavy, yet melodic guitar riffs are in full flow here, a lot of the music here is very keyboard-driven, which makes for some really cool compositions, and I don't think there is a single, standard 4/4 drum beat, which keeps things constantly interesting on the rhythm side of things. Songs worth checking out include 'Mysterious', 'Feardrops' and 'Patience', all definitely worth the price if you can find this album reasonably cheap.

Unfortunately, to counter some of the better songs, there are also some very bland and very generic songs here, which really makes the album drag on for a staggering 75 minutes! There is also a rather uninteresting cover of the Beatles' 'Elenor Rigby' which really adds nothing to the record.

Overall, there isn't too much to comment on really. It's a standard prog metal album. Nothing amazingly new, but the good songs definitely make this an album worth having.

Valarius | 3/5 |
