From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars The debut album from the most controversial and most panned band in ProgArchives.

Torman Maxt's debut album is a free download from the website so I suggest the reader downloads it and makes up their own mind instead of just reading this review. Which makes music reviewing surplus to requirement.

Anyway, Torman Maxt has not done it easy for themselves with a debut which is firmly rooted in a prog metal, AOR, Heavy Prog and Neo-Prog mishmash landscape. They sounds like a watered down King's X at times. The music is both guitars and vocal harmonies based.

I should had continued now with some more descriptions of this music. But there is no denying that this album has some serious flaws which I cannot bypass when describing this music. The vocals........... sorry, but get another daytime job, sir. It is technically not horrendous and the vocalist can actually hold a tone. But they are just annoying like some fingernail scratching on the panels of a car. The guitars too leave a lot to be desired. Not to mention the bass and drums whose rhythm patterns lacks any imaginations. In short; the band needs to be more imaginative on their instruments.

The songs too are not impressive at all. On the contrary, they are pretty dull and I am struggling to find a good song here. I give up on this task. There are some guitar harmonies and melody lines which I find decent and even good. That is the only ray of light I find on this album.

It is a free download and that is the saving grace here. This album is somewhere between one and two stars in my books, but I end up on two stars due to some positives on this album.

2 stars
