4 stars Pure technical power metal bomb!This kind of album really makes to spin the world!I cannot say that I am a technical power metal fan,but this album has something to offer to no matter music fan something serious to dig!It's the fact that PROTOTYPE's music is really well done,extremelly technical,really metalized and ESPECIALLY with excellent vocals!This fact is making the difference,undoubtedly!Vince has an excellet voice and this guy can absolutelly sing!The drummer -DAMION RAMIREZ -is monster-it's rare to hear such an extreme drumming frenzy during the whole album,a pure lesson for all the kids who want to learn an unbelieveble skilled double pedal action and intense using of the cymbals!Scarry indeed! TRANSCENDING VELOCITY is a true lesson in this direction and,maybee the highlight of the album!I told that fans of extreme technical metal in the vein of DEATH,CONTROL DENIED,ATHEIST or CYNIC will have plenty of satisfaction in listening this type of album!The brutal parts remind also of NEVERMORE,in fact I think that the best comparison that can be done about PROTOTYPE's music is with the sensational band NEVERMORE!!!I cannot really see the progressive part of the compositions ,but the high quality of the music ,the impressive technical skills and changing rhythms,and overall the strong compositions focused on melody are obvious,being really diverse and sensational produced,with a magnificent crystal clarity of each instrument!TRAVIS SMITH's cover is well done too and we ask ourselves why this so talented band doesn't has a wider recognition and popularity?2010 seems to be the year os a new PROTOTYPE album,the original drumer is back in the band and all seems to be good for this killer band!CONTINUUM is a fantastic album,highly recomandable for power metal muisc lovers with strong technical skills!4 STARS to a blastering album!
