4 stars Here we have one of the best progressive metal bands coming from Greece who released so far 2 albums. The first album named Sculpture on ice issued in 1998 and graced by an excellent cover art made by Maria Staikou as booklet shows has a good and quite complex progressive metal pieces. I was pleasent surprised by this band who realy know how to please avery progressive metal fan with this thier first release. Long piece, the opening had 17 min named To count the stars is a realy great track where every musician shines. All is ok here, well balanced album, great performance, musicianship is more then ok, the main problem, if not realy bad is the voice of George Strapatas, who has sometime that special non english speaker problems, but in the end not bad only better said unpleasent to ears in some parts, to theatrical on high notes. So I will give to this debute a solid 3.5 stars rounded to 4 because of the cover art and rest of the booklet , anyway the music is also worth metioning if you are a prog metal fan.

4 stars I have three points to mention about this album. 1) The production-sound is really poor and doesn't help their ideas at all 2) The vocalist sings with a terrible greek accent (I'm Greek I know what I am talking about!!!) 3) Everything else is PERFECT!!! Ladies and Gents this is the greates ... (read more)
