3 stars Project (today known as PPRY) were formed in early 90's in Riihimäki,Finland and began their live activity before mid-90's.In 2000 the band releases a 8-track demo entitled ''Project:Forest''.In 2002 they finished the recordings of the full-length release ''Project:Name stolen'' with the same line-up,the band has agreed with Mellow Records to release it,but for unknown reasons this would'nt be distributed until 2005.

Project created a really underground and mysterious album consisting of sixteen tightly connected tracks of a haunting atmosphere.The sound is split between heavy organ-driven 70's styled Prog Rock and CAMEL-esque melodic Symphonic Rock with some slower darker parts thrown in in close to the style of bands like ANGLAGARD and ANEKDOTEN.There are also some psychedelic elements to be found.Vocals are also dark yet average both in sung and spoken parts,propably they sound so to keep the whole album going in the same atmosphere.The organ passages of Tuukka Haapala are a highlight,while most of the guitar parts are also interesting.The album flows nice and easy,without though being a masterpiece.

''Project:Name Stolen'' is a very decent album overall,the darkness and melody are very well measured,so the work keeps some good balance,while the retro influences are nicely filtrated.So if bands in the vein of ABIOGENESIS,AREKNAMES or MEN OF LAKE are among your tastes,this effort comes strongly recommended.
