5 stars Outworld - one of the most critically underrated and unknown bands in existence. It is a massive shame that they have dissolved into the abyss of cult artists. This debut album from them is one of the greatest technical displays and songwriting displays you could ask from a prog band. Whether it's a classic album is debated, but either way, it's certainly a massive collection of Grade A Heavy Metal.

Rustey Cooley really pulled out all the creative stops on this. Every solo can captivate you and grab you by the throat saying "Listen to this! It'll rock your socks!" For example, take the magnificent "Riders", a truly classic heavy metal song, with a huge solo frenzy and heavy metal pomp surrounding the air. They took all their influences and multipied them by 9001, so it seems.

People will continue their daily lives not knowing about this band, and that is sad. However, I'll go on knowing that I've listened to a truly amazing progressive metal album. Gargantuan.

Laurelles | 5/5 |
