4 stars Soul Cages is an unknown progressive metal band from Germany with only 3 albums released in their short career before disbanded in summer of 2000. This is the second album from 1996 named Moments and their best from all 3. Even the band is quite unnoticed here and elsewhere, the music is very much brilliant with lots of tempo changes and an excellent vocalist. In places they are very similar with Queensryche, Sieges Even, Mercury Rising, but with a typical teutonic (german) sound overall. The musicianship is top notch, showing that they were pretty good band ,, that for some reseons never made it in prog metal circles, sad. The music is complicated enough to bring attention, has some very nice guitar works some kybords here and there, and above all the voice of Thorsten Staroske is the cherry on the cake, very strong rage and quite unique. From time to time there is some female moments alternating with male ones in vocal department, ok but not really remarkable oments as duo, but not band either. A very strong album this Moments, if you listen closely in the back ground is a touch of neo prog but is so well melted with the overall sound that in the end Soul Cages is a totaly progressive metal outfit. The best pieces are all, not a weak moment, with a plus on Frezing and The Naked Word, the best from here. So a recommended album and band, very underrated and desearve a better view. 4 stars easy, their best album for sure.
