4 stars I'm a little surprise to see that I'm the first reviewer of this band and album so far. Till now only 4 votes and all 5 stars - that means masterpiece of prog metal. I'm not gonna go with the rest to say this is a 5 star album, to me is only a 4, that means is a solid album but nothing close to masterpiece. The first album of Outworld was release in 2006 selftitled. A big surprise for me, in a good way, prog power metal , very uplifting with nice passages and very solid musicianship. Themain man of the band is the talentated guitar player Rusty Cooley, who have some very intristing chops and very fast solos, and aswell some melodic riffs. The voice is no other than Kelly Carpenter - you can hear this guy on Beyond Twilight album Section X from 2005. He has a powerfull voice, but when he reaches the higher notes he is to much like Rob Halford. Anyway what he does here is good. The rest of the musicians are also very technical , but not exagerating, the music is more towards power metal with prog metal leanings and solid key passages. All in all a great album, with great pieces, the best are: Raise Hell, Warcry and the longest The Grey Tide, the rest are also good. Similar bands are to me Beyond Twilight, Anubis Gate. Well finaly a 4 star album, great but not excellent. recommended to prog metal fans.
