4 stars This very good progressive metal album is reminiscent of Symphony X, Black Sabbath, Mercyful Fate and even Judas Priest. The good & expressive lead vocals are sometimes hypnotic, solemn and morbid, and sometimes a bit hysterical: they are sometimes comparable to Ozzy Osbourne's tone. The electric guitar riffs are well produced, and their sound is comparable to Tommi Iommi's and Michael Romeo's ones. There are some more mellow parts that sound a bit melancholic, full of pleasant distortion-free electric guitar notes. Some parts are faster, but it never goes into brutal speed metal. The album contains many melodic & expressive guitar solos a la Symphony X. The drums are very varied and refined although they are often slow. There are some rare but interesting modern keyboards parts, especially on the track "Ashes". Compared to Symphony X, Psychotic Waltz here are a bit more marginal and darker, despite the sound is often quite similar, like on the "Butterfly" track.
