4 stars This dutch band named Day Six is young and full of talent on this first release from 2003 named Eternal Dignity. They are a progressive metal outfit and try to capture all is best in this genre, they succeded on every pieces that's true with some outstandig music and catchy arrangements. The music is very well done, quite surprisingly good in some parts like on opening track Legend of the Hollow , a near 11 min of high class progressive symphonic metal with lots of tempo changes and awesome choruses, the keys here truly shines and the last track named The Crypt another goody from this dutch band, another example of how must sound an excellent progressive metal piece in 21 century, brilliant musicianship and inovating keyboards and guitar works. The rest of the pieces are all good, not a weak moment here, from time to time some oriental guitar passages are added to give to the listner a great atmosphre and aswell some arabic or egyptian better said feel to it. The vocals made by Robbie van Stiphout are good and very well is melting with this kind of music, from mellow to dark to a more rougher moments he is the man for this music aproach for sure. Also he is an invited guest in another dutch band who plays symphonic metal named Medea. So, all in all a great album, quite underrated in contrast with the great album they delivered. Some passages are amazing showing that they were a promising band that for some reasons remain unnoticed for wider public. They are now preparing a new album that will be soon relased. Fans of Medea, Lana Lane or even Therion in places will enjoy to the max this band.4 stars, recommended for prog metal listners.
