4 stars Metabolisme is one of those forgotten french prog rock bands that from my point of view needed much more exposure to the public. With one album released in 1977 named Tempus Fugit, re issued by Musea in 2005, Metabolisme did what they know better, compose quite complicate symphonic prog with many excellent moments. Similar in places with Atoll or even Ange comes in mind but with thir own twists. Only 5 pieces, but each one is damn fine and intresting. The album opens with the longest track , nearly 16 min of pure delight, from mellow parts two lush keybords passages and great guitar chops. One instrumental track - Tempus show that they were capable to creat great prog, with captivating guitsr meets keybords parts, but somehow they gone into oblivion, disbanded in 1979. To me was a great surprise, having the album for years, I only now remembered that I have it and write a quick review, to show that they need attention. No weak moments here, all is well performed and well done, the sound aswell of the re issue is cristal clear. 4 stars for sure.
