4 stars Moth Vellum from USA is quite an unknown and unfairly overlooked symphonic prog band to larger public, they had release in 2007 a selftitled debute. Well, this is strong and promising album with lot to offer. Long pieces with quirky instrumental passages, a warm and pleasent voice and good production overall. The band was formed and aswell is conducted by Tom Lynham and Johannes Luley. who done a good job here, both on guitars and keyboards. I was stroke how much the sound and arrangements are similar with Druid, even the voice is almost same with Dane Stevens from Druid. Also some Yes atmosphere on some parts, specially on guitar , Going for the one era specially.. The album starts very strong and with a very intresting tune named Let the Race Begin, this is an elegant type of symphonic prog, how must sound this style, catchy , inventive with blistering keyboards moements and very strong musicianship. In fact all tracks are particulary good, no weak moments here, the rhytmic section is brilliant, specially on opening track and Walk it Off. Long pieces where each musicin had time to shine on his instrument and created some spectacular moments overall. Intresting cover art. 4 stars for this little album, strong with plenty of memorable passages, symphonic prog fans must take some spins because worth it.
