4 stars I'm happy to be the first reviewer of this awesome Hungarian band's album.

Angelo Salutante is the first and only studio album by Stonehenge. Two years after the release they fell apart and later, with other members, they recorded an EP. That EP, Nerine, doesn't consist the lead vocalist of Angelo Salutante, Zoltán BZ Bátky, and although I've never heard it, I'm sure about the fact that it isn't as good as AS.

The music is prog metal, most in the vein of Dream Theater, but they have a lot of uniqe things. The members rule on their instruments, they play greatly.

There are more tracks, what if you start to listen to, you'll say: No, this will be a hard, non-prog metal song!, but in the end you'll recognize, that you were wrong. The longer songs (like Newcomer, Between Two Worlds, Rambling and Fly) are very complex, maybe even symphonic.

And now, about the songs after one another:

1. Invocation - Just an intro to the album with nature sounds.

2. Newcomer - One of the best tracks. Quite long, complex, consists a lot of musical themes. Heavy metal riffs and acoustic piano sounds are here together, with a great chorus.

3. For Another - Its chorus is similar to Newcomer's, but the song isn't as good, consists maybe the most popular sounding of the album, but nonetheless you'll enjoy to listen to it, if you've similar taste as me.

4. Wendigo - Slow tempo, dark feelings, great song.

5. Angelo Salutante - A short acoustic introduction to the following track so in lyrics as in the main riff.

6. Angels - A heavier continuation to Angelo Salutante, they share a lot in common, as I said it before.

7. Full Moon - A hard song with arabic musical parts, not my favourite.

8. Whisper - Beautiful melodic love song without banal lyrics.

9. Between Two Worlds - My favourite track! Great melody, complexity, fantastic lyrics. You can watch its music video on YouTube, this could be a delicate recommendation if you want to get acquainted with Stonehenge.

10. Rambling - Also a hard one, but with excellent lyrics and the band's general complexity.

11. Fly - Again a long and diverse song, I like it!

12. Yellow - The closer track is a good instrumental lead by bass, it gives a lovely end to this excellent album, that could come through in any prog music collection.

I hope that I could recommend you this album with my review, it will worth if you'll try it!
