4 stars Zombie Frogs is an instrumental progressive metal band based out the Berklee College of Boston, the same school of our devoted Dream Theater. They must have taken the same lessons as the leader of the progressive metal bands, because their music has plenty of references with them. Some guitars and keyboards parts can resurrect some moments of Dream Theater, but also the way the band use the stop and go structure in their songs. The style of this CD is very symphonic with some classical arrangements, and a large use of the piano throughout the CD. There is some briefs jazz intrusions and like many bands of that genre a bunch of guitars solos and also some nice keyboards solos. We can hear the influence of Michael Romero of Symphony X on some guitars parts and a bit of djent influences. This is a nice instrumental progressive metal CD with strong compositions, only a couple of songs have some shortcomings, but it's not going to reinvent the genre. For those who like music that is not too heavy but enjoy some progressive metal with a symphonic style of Dream Theater and a lot of piano will dig in.
