3 stars All gods gone is the second release of Apperance of Nothing - a progressive metal band from Switzerland, the album released in 2011. Eh, let's say that this kind of metal I've heared 3 billion times before, nothing is groundbreaking here, in places is even boring. They gone already on a path beaten to many times by prog metal bands like Dream Theater , Vanden Plas or even Edge of sanity moments to be found here. Overall the musicianship is ok, they know to handle the instruments for sure , what lacks here is captivating arrangements, instresting passages, inventive solos. Aswell I have hard times listning to that combination clean/growling vocals, is not bad but totaly pointless to me ears. Two well known figures in metal zone Davon Graves from Dead Soul Tribe and Psychotic Waltz fame and Dan Swano from Edge of Sanity and Nightingale, had good prestation on some pieces, specially Dab Swano on 2nd God the most progressive metal piece from the album to me. The music offered is technical progressive metal with plenty of power metal elements added, some good if not spactacular riffs are to be found here and in places some keybords are a welcome in the overall metalized sound. The best track tome is Destination, the rest are ok but far from being soemthing really intresting or captivating. So, 3 stars to this album, maybe in same league with their first release from 3 years prior, overall good, but that it. To me is quite the type of prog metal even is not bad at all is forgetable at best.
