4 stars I came late "into the game" of appreciating Myrath. Sure, they admit they were influenced by Symphony X, but so what? IMO, they take that style of prog metal to the next level with their Middle-Eastern influences. Not to mention, their musicianship on this third album is par excellence. While the lead guitarist is compared to Romeo of Symphony X, he certainly brings in his own Tunisian / Middle-Eastern elements that Romeo would not have a clue about. Some might say this is less of a prog album than their first two. The same could be said of Kansas of 'Leftoverture.' And yet, we have such prog classics on Leftoverture as 'Miracles Out of Nowhere' and 'Magnum Opus.' I feel Myrath has given us their "Leftoverture" album - and it rocks, big time! The lead vocalist is in fine voice, as are all the instrumentalists (sorry, I live in P.R. China, and cannot always access Google-based Wikis). There was a time about a year-and-a-half-ago where I listened to this album every 2-3 days. In the last 4 months, I have only just now begun listening to it again, as it is a "classic" - in its own definition of that term. The first album was good; the second album was great (and worth owning), but this third album is a must for any who are into Symphony X, Dream Theater, or - for that matter - Kansas. Get it and get a new experience in prog metal!
