4 stars 5 years silence after the impressive SHADOWS UNBOUND amazing album,and Guy Le Blanc strikes back with his NATHAN MAHL band and offer us a new majestic album called EXODUS !It's the most mature and elaborated work so far,based on the holy Book and tit ries to capture,musically speaking,the dramatic period of these forgotten times!Of course,NATHAN MAHL is a sure value of the Canadian symphonic progressive with serious fusion touch and this new album doesn't dissapoint at all!Inside the cover of the album,a very impressive one too,we discover great compositions based on amazing rhythm changes,breaks and solid musical ideas!It's the kind of album thet it's author has from years the ideas in mind,and only after many versions can have a final form!The diversity is present everywhere,the keyboards are stellar and sometimes explosive.NATHAN MAHL have realised in the past the brilliant masterpiece called THE HERETIC -a monumental trilogy,one of the most spectacular and unfortunatelly ,underrated musical jewel and this album continue the monumentality of the work mentioned!Guy LeBlanc has a sympathy for cinematic and almost ambiental music and that's why I think that ,the instrumental parts of the songs are really brilliant!The band seems to be in it's most optimal element when the vocal parts are gone and the instrumental ones begin-it's like a delivery,the sign to start the frenzy in a very spectacular way!All musicians are top class and each instrument has a definited place in the composition,that's for sure!!This album must be apreciated in it's integrality,so it;'s impossible to say which song is the highlight of the album!Personally I adore DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN and 40 DAYS,but each song of the album is marvelous!Another inspired album ,a new beginning for NATHAN MAHL and many beautiful perspectives. 4.5 STARS for an ambitious and complex album of prog fusion with symphonic moments
