4 stars EXCELLENT ALBUM!!!

INDISPENSABLE IN ANY PROGRESSIVE METAL COLLECTION!!!

"A relative moment of piece" is a solid and refreshing release full of several nuances brought from folk, progressive metal and ethnic music. This album a musical journey where you can feel influences from Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Shadow Gallery, Enchant, and Queensryche mixed with keyboard and guitar instrumental passages that remind Pink Floyd. There are electronic elements and a very intense atmosphere with an emotive musical structure that reminds fine neo-progressive European bands like Clepsydra and Satellite.

THE MUSIC

This album is not another "Dream Theater" clone or an experimental album exploring new sounds. Instead, this is a multifaceted album different from any other in progressive metal scene, because it balances properly the aggressive sound of the 90's progressive metal with the freshness of subtle symphonic elements.

The exceptional production allows this band to have a crystalline and transparent sound. The use of violin, female vocals, electronic interventions, violin solos, jazz guitar arrangements that reminds Frank Gambale, and acoustic passages are some of the proper elements of "Time's Forgotten" that makes it original.

The epic "This troubled heart of mine" lasts about 35 minutes and is divided in four parts where emotion, tears, anger, sadness and the will of change takes place. When the last track finishes, there are some minutes of silence before an acoustic outro takes place, just in the same way Shadow Gallery ends his "Carved in Stone" album.

THE CONCEPT

This album has an implicit concept in which the main character finds himself alone and is wrapped in sadness and desperation due to sentimental troubles. This person is tied to a series of vivid memories that he confuses with reality. In these memories, a failed love takes place. He tries to escape from that state of desolation and after a series of inner conflicts he reaches his freedom.

CONCLUSION

"A Relative Moment of Peace" is an indispensable album for any progressive fan eager for fresh excellent music and innovative ideas.

GOOD PROGRESSIONS!!!
