Progressive Metal

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars I knew some other band mixing classical music and metal (HAGGARD, THERION, PAR LINDH PROJECT), but this one is specially good in mixing these two main source of inspiration in a balanced and unique blend. Melodies are complex, sometimes purely classical (great piano moments), others close to Power Metal, dissonant or easier to access, but never boring. The best moments for me is when the piano enrich the drum/guitar metal base, with other classical instruments/sounds (voices, clarinet, violins, orchestra...) I agree with others that drums are a bit weaker: typical Metal(ic) sound where more clear and natural sound would make it perfect. Also if drums are sometimes rather simple and repetitive, the mood and melodic changes helps to forget this weakness.
