2 stars Now I donīt want to come down too hard on this album, but there are things here that just turns me off instantly. Forgotten Suns play progressive metal/ heavy rock with lots of keyboards. This is the typical concept for most progressive bands and there is nothing wrong with that. What is wrong is the fact that this is more heavy rock with irritating keyboard inteludes than progressive metal. The singer is a typical south european heavy rock vocalist. He sings with an accent that I thought was german at first but it turns out the band is from Portugal. I am not surprised.

I have really tried to find things that could pull this up but the production isnīt very good and the band plays pretty standard stuff too. So nothing can really save this from oblivion. This is definitely below what I call average and proves once again the most south european metal bands are below standard even though there examples that prove me wrong. Rhapsody of Fire comes to mind.

I guess my personal opinion would be 1 star here but looking past my obvious discontempt with this music, I have to admit that the quality is for 2 stars. Some might find this more exciting than me, but I canīt even bring myself to say this is average stuff. Not recommendable.

UMUR | 2/5 |
