4 stars This debut album from young brazilians Thessera is quite interesting.

The guitar is the main instrument here, but with a sound not too often heard in prog metal. Polished, slick and somewhat subdued, the guitar sound has similiarities to Dream Theaters debut "When Dream And Day Unite". And the guitar solos offered deals just as much with drawn out notes and melodies as with scale masturbation - wish more guitarists would do that...

The piano is used on quite a few tracks to carry the melody as well, and it fits perfectly. Synth is mainly used to enhance moods.

There are touches of jazz and fusion here and there in the songs; unusual for a prog metal band - but it works quite well here.

Main weakness on this album is the vocalist; doesn't quite cope with the task at hand in my opinion.

But a good debut nontheless, and should be checked out if you're into this genre.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
