Everybody knowing that Poland is one of the premier league countries when is coming about neo prog genre. This style is very popular there for decades already and in each year are born more and more acts who embrace this style. One of the new younger band are Arlon. Formed in 2009 and releasing so far in 2013 their first offer named On the edge. What I was instantly hooked on this album was the melodical aproach to ther music, they play a type of neo prog here and there metalized little bit, but never sounding like a prog metal band in the end, something between in their most heavier parts with Riversidea and aswell with their country friends AnVision and in the calmer sections with let's say Collage. The voice of Pawel Szykula is excellent, he has a very warm tone in his voice fiting perfectly in this type of music. The passages are very melodical with nice guitar parts, even great in some places, a very well balance between melodic aproach and more heavier parts, very good. Pieces like opening On The Edge, Dream, It's Your Day or the excellent instrumental Equals, showing that Arlon has pontential in this scene and they are talented bunch of musicians. In the end a a nice towards great release, that worth to be investigated. 3,5 stars for sure.
