3 stars IXION are actually a project-band found at the dawn of the 00's by Dutch computer programmer/multi-instrumentalist Jankes Braam.After a good debut entitled ''Cryogenesis'' in 2004,IXION released a more ambitious effort in 2006 under the name of ''Talisman''.Built around the concept theme of a talisman we follow throughout the ages,the album is sounding like a Rock Opera filled with strong Neo Prog melodies,symphonic piano work,alternating melodic and aggresive guitars and a spacey synthresizer atmosphere.Vocals are split between male,female and a choir and the whole work sounds really obscure,atmospheric and attractive.Nice discovery for those who are searching for a crossover style of KNIGHT AREA,PINK FLOYD and AYREON!
