4 stars When I bought this CD I had several months without acquiring any new prog disc on my collection, so I decided for a band to make this purchase worthwhile and so it was. I entered to a downtown music store where the salesman was a friend of mine and he knew exactly the kind of music I love. So, he played the first promo track of the album and so I could see it clear: This band had to be on my collection!!!

"Seventh Sign" from "Section A" is a really serious and brilliant album recorded by a prog metal band which has a particular and attractive style. They combine the force and purity of prog metal from late 90's with stunning superguitar solos, late heavy rock riffs and of course some elements of space rock. All of those elements combined in a metal background.

There is an significant presence on guest keyboards by Derek Sherinian on two tracks "The Seventh Sign" and "Nightmare" and by Gunter Werno on "Tomorrow". There is also a clear influence of Dream Theater by the times of "Images And Words" but with an even more solid metal force. The finesse and clearance of Andy Engberg's vocals combines in a perfect way with the explosive drums of Andreas Lill. The professional maturity of superguitarist Torben Enevoldsen, who is, without a doubt the main musician of the band, makes this a worthwhile addition to any prog metal collector. The production made by Enevoldsen himself makes his expressive and complex guitar arrangements seem to be especially predominant throughout music without breaking the balance of the rest of the band.

If you love prog metal from DT or Sun Caged or superguitars as Ciril Achards, Lars Eric Mattson this album is definitely a must. Section A is a band with real talent to make music of high quality; if you love complex guitar arrangements you will not be disappointed at all. So they deserve four solid stars from me, excellent addition to any prog collection!

Good progressions!!!
