3 stars A UK-based modern progressive rock band,TR3NITY were formed in 1998 by musicians Rob Davenport (guitars,bass) and Paul Gath (keyboards,piano).They started TR3NITY as a project,but as the time went by they transformed into a full band with the addition of full-time musicians.Signed by Cyclops Label,they released their debut ''The cold light of darkness'' in 2002.

With such a haunting title,you can expect nothing more than an album strongly based on atmosphere and deep emotions.It tells a story about Cathy,a young girl who have been abused as a child and her life is the main subject of the album.Influenced by the likes of GENESIS,PINK FLOYD as well as neo prog acts like PENDRAGON,''The cold light of darkness'' stays away from complex themes or abstract interplays and leans towards melody and harmony.Three are the main elements of this album:the soaring guitars and the GILMOUR-inspired solos of Davenport,the strong synth work and the ambient-like passages of Gath and the massive vocal attack of the ultra-sensitive voice of Chris Campbell.No interplays,no changing tempos...the album follows a slow/mid-tempo,which allows the listener to enter the story even better.Definitely a grower,''The cold light of darkness'' should be labeled under the most sensitive works of easy-listening prog rock of 2002 and should certainly appeal to a great mass of neo/symphonic/melodic rock fans.
