3 stars Cerebus Effect, this good band with a strange music released a single album so far in 2005 named Acts of deception. Well, I don't really know why I didn't get into this album as other listners. Sometimes the music is to avant for my taste. BTW the music offered is something between avant prog metal but without being a prog metal band with some symphonic touches on opening track Y and aswell with jazz fusion elements added. The first tune Y is great, and the Nine Against Ten is another great one, the rest while are ok I was not very impressed really, as I said to experimental and avant to my ears, and sometimes it sounding like this music has no head or tail, is going nowhere. Anyway some great musicins here like Dan Britton on keyboards, later on we find him on Deluge Grandeur on in Birds and Buildings, drummer Patrick Gaffne coming from Chaos Code another overlooked band in prog circles. The musicinship is great but they don't deliver they just play. 3 stars is best I can give to this album.
