4 stars Last Turion is one of the most obscure neo/prog metal bands coming from Germany and releasing two albums before gone into oblivion and no one heared about them anything, that was happening in the '90's. I had hard times finding this second album of them from 1996 named Seduction overdose issued at Angular/Musea records, but tanks to a friend of mine who let me know this excellent band and album. I was simply knock out by the music offered by Last Turion, this is beyong great, one of the lost treasures in prog music. Combining very eficient and with outstanding ideas neo prog elements with the melodic side of prog metal, the result is pretty solid and damn well played. The musicianship is top notch, tight and with some great parts all over the album, no weak moments here. Maybe the album relies more on vocal department, the voice of Martin Garden is absolutly awesome, what a singer, what range this guy has, what tone of voice, brilliant vocal parts, but aswell the instrumental arrangements are quite nice, iteligent and very well performed. The forte tracks, all but with a plus one, opning track the title track, HUmiliation, Beyond Today - my fav from here, the lyrics on this one are superb and very meanigful, Autumn Scream and Whatever You Might See with great lyrics. Usualy I don't pay very much attention to lyrics, depends of the album, but on this one I was amazed by the so pertinent and great words this album has. All in all this is brilliant album, very unnoticed and unknown, 4 stars easy and warmly recommended one of the biggest surprises I had in last years. Very good cover art aswell.
