3 stars A very interesting US-based band,HELMET OF GNATS' roots can be discovered someyime at the early 80's.The band suffered from numerous line-up changes,different forms and names and they actually started as a DIXIE DREGS tribute band.Having disbanded at the end of the 80's,HELMET OF GNATS regrouped in 1990 with a more stable line-up.This would lead them to their first ever eponymous record in 1996...

''A helmet of Gnats'' is a strong release with various influences,a classic instrumental progressive rock album.Main themes are coming from jazz/fusion bands (mainly DIXIE DREGS) with a pleasant atmosphere dominated by the fusion-like guitar playing,the groovy bass lines and the strong keyboard work.There is also some nice piano parts and the tempos,moods and climates change constantly,you won't find a really boring moment in here.I honestly liked this release a lot despite the lack of originality.Fans of well- executed fusion/progressive rock in the vein of DIXIE DREGS or 4 FRONT will have a great time with this album.3.5 stars...
