4 stars RC2 from Venezuela was and is after all those years since issued a one hell of a great ride for me. They must be the best band Venezuela ever had in prog circles, that is for sure. They established their reputation with the second album issued in 2008 named Future awaits. Man, this album kick ass from start to finish. With one foot in prog metal, the melodic side and with another in symphonic prog, RC2 manage to come with a splendid complex and quite intresting second offer. Imagine you combine Dream Theater (from Images and words and Falling into infinity era) with hints that goes towards Marillion, Yes and even italian school the result is Future awaits. Definetly the best from the two albums released by the band and for sure one of the best albums of 2008 and still one of the intresting albums ever coming from South America in last decade, RC2 really capture my attention big time. From the opening Time Pieces, a 10 min piece with complicated swirling keybords and inventive guitars and a voice that remind me of LaBrie in his prime moments to the middle of the album Autum and ending two part Voice of the Storm this album is a total winner in my book. Lots of instrumental sections,there are even two entirely instrumentals here El Diablo Suelto with a clear symphonic prog/folk side and the uptempo and energic highly intresting first part from Voices of the storm shows big potential in this band. All pieces are fairly solid, the musicinship is top notch, maybe little much more originality was needed, but is excellent this way to. From me easy 4 stars, recommended , they remaining in silence since this second album was issued, no news for more then 5 years. Nice art work, remind a lot with Tiles Fly paper released same year.
