5 stars Today I was at my friend's flat.He has a DVD-player,and I use to watch some movies or concerts with him.Suddenly he said:"I got a DVD of one band...I like the first part,it sounds very atmospheric,Porcupine Tree/Lanberk-like"(He likes these bands,but he isn't a prog-lover as a whole)."They're from Sweden.But I disike the second part -he continiued- there's something wrong with the singer...he growls as if he {CENSORED}.But I think you'll like this second part".The few seconds of silence followed.I said:"Wow,I know a great band from Sweden.Their singer uses to growl,but he also likes Camel.I have all of their CDs but the mellowest one - DAMNATION,I guess...".Few seconds later we've realised that we talked of one and the same band!!! A minute later we were watching the show.It was stunning.I'm going to buy "Damnation"(it was released by Russian license).That's it :-) What?The show?Ah,marvellous.I adore them.Excellent musicianship,wonderful melodies,a moody atmosphere and insanity in the heavier part.Highly recommended for prog newbies(they may like the first part) and metal fans(the second part is their Valhalla)
