SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Dol Ammad's second release Ocean Dynamics is a fascinating release.

Combining electronic music in many of it's varieties - from trance to new age - with operatic vocals and choirs, and with a musical foundation of metal mixed in most of the time, this band has created a rather unique musical niche.

With some tracks with strong trance flavoring and others sounding kind of like Dimmur Borgir meeting up with Tangerine Dream in an opera, this won't be to everybody's taste. Fans of dramatic and bombastic metal in all it's varieties will undoubtedly enjoy this one though.

4 stars Second album of this discrete band, Ocean dynamics issued in 2006 is an improvement over thier first opus. Here everything works perfectly, fantasy progressive metal I might say is all about here with prog electronic meets classical music and prog metal, a weird combination but works very well in this context. Again the choir is absolutely amazing, there are some moments that is giving me shivers down the spine and in combination with prog elements and eletronic music , the result is amazing. Thanasis Lightbridge is a great keyboardist that managing to create something that is not for everybody, but those who understands this kind of music are fully reworded. Again not a weak moments here, the first pieces Thalassa Dominion divided in 4 pieces is killer, excellent soundscapes, inventive instrumental sections and all is here. Therion meets Ayreon in some arrangements, quite intresting from start to finish. Nice artwork as on previous album. Ocean dynamics I guess is their best album so far, and my fav from them for sure. 4 stars easy to this one, very strong and tight musicinship and the choir in some passages simply kick ass.
