3 stars A new band in the pretty huge progressive metal scene. Atomixynergy is from Italy and this is their debut album, released after two EPs which has garnered some very favourable reviews.

There is no doubts that Atomixynergy is extreme talented and knows the use of their instruments. Their music is melodic progressive metal with some nods towards neo-prog, heavy prog, post rock and AOR. Actually, this album is somewhere between progressive metal and heavy prog. The use of Hammond organs is very heavy prog'gish. The band also throws in some curve balls like some jazz stuff too. This album, Vacuum, is by no means a revolution which will change everything in the music scene. But the band has something good going on. They even have their own identity in their search for a sound which will give them their own niche in this overcrowded market.

The problems is the lack of any really great songs. The album ticks over and I nod approvingly at everything here. But there is not really one song here I would label as a great song. But as a debut album, Atomixynergy has set out their stall and I am sure we will hear a lot more from this band in the future. A future which may be theirs if they continues down this road.

This album is highly recommended to every prog metal fan here and it is a great shame and injustice that I am the first who has reviewed this album. The prog metal fans here should follow suit.
