3 stars A new progressive metal band named Dimension Act from Norway with Manifestation of progress released this year at Progrock records might give to some listners a very positive feedback, but to me after more then 3 listnings I've said to myself eh another one of those bands that tries to make a name in the overpopulated prog metal scene. The album and sound overall is not bad, only 4 pieces are here, the last one clocking around half an hour is definetly the best piece band has to offer, the rest are ok but far from being of a real intrest. For ex the Uncharted Waters - a very nice title name for a piece but the music fail to impress me, I mean I've heared this kind of aproach progressive/power metal I guess few hundred times in past year or so. If were not the last piece, the epic Drawing the Lines of Mortal Existence, definetly this album was almost mediocre at best. But this tune save the album, here we find some spectacular intense musicianship, specially on first 5 min intro of the track, really impressive, and the music goes alternating more mellow parts with more up tempo all arrangements being towards progressive metal this time more then on the rest 3 pieces. Very nice breaks, guitar sounds very complex in some parts and aswell some fine keyboards. The voice I found to be ok most of the time nothing is special in his tone of voice anyway. In the end a fairly good album, no groundbreaking moments for sure or original passages though. 3 stars is the best I can give, fans of lets say Communic or in places Dream Theater might check this band.
