3 stars 3.5 for sure

Thessera from Brazil is a progressive metal band with moderate succes so far in prog metal zone, maybe because they release so far a single album in 2006 named Fooled eyes issued by Prog rock records. The band is clearly influenced by bands like Dream Theater, Symphony X, the instrumental passages are quite great in places, the voice aswell remind me of Fates Warning sometimes, all in all more then ok album. The intro is a great instrumental piece that show the potential of the band followed by the best track of the album, The Gallery, lenghy piece, where specially the keyboards are top notch, nice great voice for sure. Broken Psyches is another highlight with excellent guitar parts, piano is used in couple of piece and is very well melted witht he rest of the instruments. Quite complex prog metal, with some great moments, melodic and in same time very skillful album. So, one of the good prog metal releases coming from Brazil, it's a shame that they release only this album, I don't know if they are still active in this bussines, I would like to see a second album soon if there will be a second output in the future, because they had potential but some how they remain due to this release and some of the musical passages followers not leaders in this zone. Still an album that can be descovered by prog metal listners. Great cover art and great booklet.
