4 stars The new RELOCATOR came back with rigidly steady metallic structuralism, despite of their unsteady ensemble structure until 2008.

They say the original RELOCATOR had been active as a live band but unstable for their lineup until 2008 but in early 2009 Stefan and Michael, two founding members, decided to revive and remotivate RELOCATOR as a new project for completing their full album with lots of material they had worked on for so long. Not only simply metallic but more experimental and progressive - finally in 2010 they could release their eponymous debut album. Perfectly supported by the massive strict rhythm section featuring Mike's bass and Frank's drums, and conducted by Stefan's sharp-edged aggressive guitar and Bartek's flexible graceful violin solo (exactly with mysterious power in "Red Vibes" and "Aavishkar"!), the story named Relocator can carry on comfortably. Silky but bold, melodious but complex - their sound and style can be expressed like that, can't they? Derek's swift but minute keyboard play is excellent (for me especially in the second track "Biosphere" - Van Halen's Jump-ish keyboard delight, and in the latter part of the sixth "13 Reasons" - complicated but graceful key maze) too. However, let me say the most important point about them and their album is, not the playing skill or talent of each player, but the solidarity among all of them and fascination by this solidarity.

Enjoy the novel world-ful of RELOCATOR, please.

P.S. Their album's booklet is also attractive! I'm very amazed!
