Prog Reviewer
3 stars Ansata is a progressive metal band formed around 1997, disbanded in 2004 and reformed a couple of years later when they begun to work at their first album, named Crux ansata released in 2008. Progressive metal is thekey here with lots of symphonic moments, where guitar and keys has main role, but aswell the band relies a lot on vocal department. This debute album is ok, good, the problems being the voice of Malagueta when he reaches higher notes, to out of place here and the sound, to muddy for this kind of music when all instruments must sound crystal clear. Anyway good work overall, of course is alot to work to make some pretentions worlwide but I guess with consecvent work this obstacle will be overcome. All pieces has same level, not one is weak not one is in front, nice passages between guitar and keys. I will give 3 stars for Crux ansata, well played but not something realy solid, only good and nothing more.
