3 stars Elysium Theory released their second offer after almost 3 years silence, named Event horizon issued this year 2013. I like a lot their first opus so I decided to check this one aswell. Well, what we have here is little bit diffrent then Modern alchemy, in terms of musical arrangements. Even horizon is less energic then Modern alchemy but never the less has some very good moments, really., like Long count and Clockwork Earth, the best pieces from here, aswell has some spectacular guitar parts and the voice aswell is excellent. The tone and range of Daniel Peterson is top noch, I like him a lot, he has a warm voice and fits perfectly into this kind of music. Now , the instrumental passages are not many, but those left are quite ok most of the time, atmospheric keyboards and well played guitar parts specially on Clockwork Earth - Timothy Reid done a great job for sure. This is a typical cross over kind of prog , with not many twists and turns or complicated instrumental sections, this is a well performed warm melodic side of prog who relies more on vocal department, but has I think enough moments to please most of the fans. Even horizon is a worthy follow up of this unnoticed band, who needs a far more recognition I think. The endig track Cask of Amontillado clocking around 17 min and divided into 4 small pices is aswell great, melodic prog as must sound this kind of music. Now, overall is more then decent, a well desearved 3 stars more like 3.5 stars, but with all that I prefere little more their first one.
