4 stars The distance from Australia makes that sometimes we don't get much of what it's been happening there musically. The progressive rock field is not an exception although it's seems to be changing thank's to the internet. One of the things that has arrived to Europe from kangaroo land is this talented prog-rock band called Kettlespider. A young fearless outfit plenty of energy that makes themselves a true revelation. They create an elegant heavy-prog style without too much fanfare. It might sound a bit pretentious but i would say they could be the real Dream Theater's succesors. This is their first album and to tell you the truth it is a must have record. Avadante is a well-produced collection of seven songs full of musical richness that last around six minutes each. They have a powerful sound with perfectly measured heavy guitar riffs without flashing and unpleasant high notes. This is a record of epic heavy-prog neither sounding overproduced nor out of context, totally different from the most of those bands doing the same kind of music. Avadante shows the sincerest and the humblest side of the style. Their pieces are balanced and they flow just between a power house rhythm section and the perfect melody. Scott Ashburn (guitar), Haris Boyd-Gering (guitar), Colin Andrews (Bass), Simon Wood (Drums), Geoffrey Fife (Keyboards). These are the makers of this magnificent instrumental project. Don't miss the chance to hear them.
