3 stars Nemezis is a Polish five piece band that delivers wonderful neo-prog on her eponymous debut-CD from 2008: from mellow with twanging guitars, soaring synthesizers and warm female vocals to compelling and bombastic with varied keyboards and beautiful, often Steve Rothery-like guitarwork (many times he carried me away to Marillion's Fish era). My highlights are the moving guitar solo in Unknown Tomorrow, the exciting interplay between a church-organ sound, guitar and drums in With No Return and a spectacular synthesizer solo in Somewhere In Time

About the long final piece The End (more than 12 minutes), this one succeeds to generate the most excitement.

A dreamy intro with warm vocals, piano and soaring keyboards.

A wonderful part with intense orchestral keyboards, beautiful piano with longing vocals, sensitive guitarplay in a slow rhythm.

A mid-tempo with propulsive drums, a long and harder-edged guitar solo (like Steve Rothery at his pinnacle).

And a quite mellow conclusion with piano and again that excellent female voice.

So another interesting band from the New Polish Progressive Movement (from Riverside to Osada Vida). Highly recommended, especially to the neo-prog fans. Unfortunately no more signs from Nemezis after this promising debut CD.

My rating: 3,5 star.
