5 stars REBEL MIND is that kind of album which makes such a strong impression on every music fan at the first audition ,and the only expression you can have is-WOW!Absolutelly,this is a more than impressive album of US prog metal which has the gift to put the listener in a state of musical enchantment and fascination!Honestly,I can say that I had the same reaction only after I made the first audition for albums such as-DREAM THEATER-IMAGES AND WORDS....QUEENSRYCHE-OPERATION MINDSCIME...WATCHTOWER-CONTROL AND RESISTANCE....DALI'S DILEMA-MANIFESTO FOR FUTURISM...LEMUR VOICE-INSIGHTS....ALTURA-MERCY.....SHADOW GALLERY-CARVED IN STONE.....ZERO HOUR-TOWERS OF AVARICE....ETERNITY X-THE ADGE...Albums,which I consider to be milestone albums in prog metal!REBEL MIND is so well done,performed,produced,everything is close to perfection under all aspects!Definitelly,the first thing that "hits"your ears is the voice of the guywho sings in the band-absolutelly sensational,just perefect for this type of music!Powerful,yet melodic or agressive when necessary-a wide range of vocal expressions-absolutelly fantastic!Then .the majestic skills of the guitarists-trully fabulous technical registers,diverse and varied,plus the fantastic virtuosity of the keyboard player,the mastermind under EUMERIA-Mr Bobby Williamson,a magician of the keys!!!The rhythm section is amazing too,the drumming work is fabulous and the bass lines are killer too!!!Definitelly,a band of aces,very skilled musicians-top class!Musically speaking,the style is pure prog metal,muscled and melodic in the same time,technical but not in excess,with strong and very articulated compositions and a majestic interpretation for all the young musicians from the band!No weak track,that's rare...If I can choose,find a similar band to EUMERIA,definitelly I would choose LEMUR VOICE,and that's a compliment!!!For me,this is 5 stars album,the production of Jacob Hansen is colossal too and brings a major plus to the album!All my respect and admiration and we wait the second volume asap,please!
