3 stars I've taken a liking to this young band. They work hard. Two 75-minute albums in 3 years. I've read them described as "prog metal for the masses" on a Russian site, and thought well that's not fair. Derivative of the Dream Theater/Symphony X self-indulgent neoclassical/power/melodic/gothic metal mix, sure, but the songwriting is there (including a surprisingly coherent 45-minite suite already on their first album), and even fresh in its back to the classics, fanboy kind of sense.

What we have here on Recognition is more of the same, 8-10 minute songs, maybe a bit rougher in places, but pretty similar sound to Circle of Life. If you must choose, I'd pick the first one for its catchier melodies, but in reality both could satisfy your Dream Theater-wannabe hunger.

Progrussia | 3/5 |
