5 stars This band is not your typical heavy metal group of the 1970s. They used to be called "intellectual metal" band due to highly elaborated lyrical images of horror and sci-fi, sound and production design. The third album "Secret Treaties" brought them close to the progressive rock audience, because it contains excellent songs, wonderful melodic solo parts of guitars and keyboards, confident performance and progressive arrangements. Highlights include "Dominance and Submission", "Flaming Telepaths" and "Astronomy", while semi-hit "Career of Evil" was penned by punk diva Patti Smith. Even the weakest and rather mediocre hard rocking' track "ME262" makes a meaningful break between the two sides of the album, which flows almost uninterrupted from start to finish. Then, you are prompted to start it all over again. Is there a better way to recommend this excellent work? And yes, the listeners of "progressive metal" are very much advised to listen to this album - they might be witnessing the very "proto" of their beloved genre!
