4 stars Dark, deep and obscure. That's the words I choose to describe this strange and beautiful piece of music.

Methexis is a solo project by multi-instrumentalist Nikitas Kissonas. It's frequent to find crossover prog projects that are slow paced and dark. That's the case with this particular album. It consists in 7 obscure songs focused on guitar harmonies and retro-style keyboards setting the tone and dark environment to the low heavy vocals.

What you will find are really great moody songs, slow paced and dark. The harmonies are great and it might be tough for a casual listener to keep the track, especially because the vocals, that aren't that commercial or catchy. But the album definitely grows with the time, the songs are strong and interesting enough to keep you wondering about it.

I think that it's easier to dive in the music in a cloudy lazy afternoon or when you are depressed. You will love the experience. The physical copy of the album is really nice because of the art that enforces the mood and the tone of the album.

To make it brief, think of Neal Morse's music, only without the bombastic "good" vibe. This is more obscure and depressive. Which is great.

I find it pleasing to hear it from time to time. I really hope Nikitas keep the track and bring out more music like this. Crossover prog has a lot to offer to the world and Methexis is a pleasing discovery for me. Four strong stars after several months of constant spinning. Highly recommended.
