Prog Reviewer
4 stars Swiss label Galileo Records new discovery are a German band named SCYTHE. Previously they have released albums with FORGOTEN SUNS, METAPHOR and XANG. As these releases have been very good the expectations for this album was quite big. "Divorced Land" are the follow up to SCYTHE's debut demo CD "Each Other" (1999), but their first album on Galileo Records. Their music is complex symphonic progressive rock with some reminiscences to GENESIS, KING CRIMSON, MARILLION and YES. You'll probably have to hear this album for some time before you get into it. Everything is very good, but I can't get used to the vocals (but that is just my personal taste), which I find quite boring. All in all this is a promising CD with solid musicianship and complex compositions. When you finally get used to the vocals you'll find a diamond in the rough. Although it is a very good album, it is my least favourite on the Galileo Records label so far. It's however one of the better releases from Germany in a long time.
