4 stars OUTWORLD is a fantastic power metal album with strong progressive elements!I had the chance to discover this album several years after it was released!It's a sensational album,made by very competent musicians which shows the endless ways of expression for this type of music!The feeling after a first audition of this album is the one of amazement,because this guys are so impressive in their interpretation-WOW!The instigator of this album is Mr Bobby Williamson,the guy which started after this project ,the amazing band EUMERIA!In OUTWORLD we find the killer guitar shredder-Rusty Cooley-a monster guitar player ,with a fantastic brilliant wizardry!All his solos are impressive,trully fabulous!Also,the keyboard work is colossal,the duels with the guitar are absolutelly sensational!Both are agressive and spectacular and show the fantastic chemistry between this two out of this world musicians-Williamson and Cooley!The voice is impressive too,but it's a little too hysterical sometimes in my humble opinion,in Rob Halford's high register-that's a compliment,but sometimes it's exagerated!Kelly Carpenter has an amazing voice,but here he is pushing some limits,screaming at an unbelieveble level!he's known from BEYOND TWILLIGHT ,but there he sang in a totally different vocal register!!!The bass work and the drumming is phenomenal too!!!Overall,a great musical discovery,a great album,a pure ear delicacy for both fans of power and prog metal lovers!!!!4-4,5 stars without any hesitation!!!
