4 stars Following the succesful steps of E.L.P.,TRESPASS were formed in 1999 in Jersusalem,Israel, led by keyboard-maestro Gil Stein.Joined by Gabriel Weissmann on drums and Roy Bar-Tour on bass,they formed a powerful prog trio,which, unlike their name suggests, recalls the best moments of E.L.P...Release on Musea Records in 2002,''In haze of time'' meant to be a really strong debut for the band.

Gil handles all keyboards and guitars and his main influences seems to be Keith Emerson and Rick Van Der Linden on keys and Jan Akkermann on guitars.Powerful and bombastic Hammond organ solos in the vein of E.L.P. constantly alternate with classical-sounding keyboard passages in the style of TRACE,while there is also some careful yet atmospheric use of digital synths,sometimes with an ambient feeling,making the whole effort sounding more modern.Gil's guitar work follows the smooth and confindent style of Jan Akkermann filled with tons of melody and harmony.Vocals are scarce,but there are also quite great and suitable to the music.The rhythm section is also amazing with a very tight playing,you will certainly notice it in some good improvisational parts with jazzy leanings and fantastic interplays with Stein's piano.I had a lot of time to listen to such an inspiring and elaborated work by a prog trio and TRESPASS deserve your attention for one of the most amazing modern works in prog territory with an obvious vintage aura.Highly recommended!
