3 stars 3.5 stars for sure

S91 from Italy was a nice discovery for me somewhere in summer last year while searching for some new bands to discover from bandcamp page. These italians really made an more then ok 2 albums so far. This is their second offer issued in 2016 named Behold the mankind. So, what about the music, to my ears it sounds like a metalized version of italian symphonic prog, definetly more on prog metal side but symphonic passages are present aswell, similarities with another great italian prog band VIII Strada, The new pieces are really inspired and complicated songwriting in many parts, very nice duelings between guitars and keyboards, strong female voice of Maria Londino.. The band has an invited male vocalist Christian Liljegren (from Narnia, Flagship fame among others)integrated very well in this type of sound. Very solid musicianship, sprecially I like a lot the keyboards, pieces like Slaves And Kings, and The Son Of God . A band that gone under the radar in prog metal circles, this is a fairly good release that must be praised little more, S91 has plenty of talent to go further and crating some even better albums. Since then to me is a 3 star rounded to 3.5 stars album, nice art work, album available on italian label Undergound symphony. A nice one, gone unnoticed by prog metal listners.
