2 stars Altona is prog metal band from Turkey and they are around this scene for more than 10 years while releasing only a single studio album so far in 2007 selftitled. OK , the music is like I' m combining Metallica or Testament in place for roughness, even some Bay Area musical type is here combine with less elements of prog metal maybe some Dream Theater chops (Train of thought era), they are more a power/thrash metal band with some prog metal leanings here and there. They incorporate in their sound some oriental elements from their country who gives a more divers sound similar with Amaseffer. They are less complex than a usual prog metal band, they don't have key solo passages to give a little more great atmosphere, they sound rough like concrete and unpolished. Ok the album doesn't sound bad but nothing realy exciting either. If I want old schoold power metal or thrash then I will listen to Testament, Sanctuary, Metal Church , and for sure not them. I'm not puting down their work, but with such an album is very hard to make some noise in prog metal world.2.5
