3 stars I heard about Alchemist a couple of years ago through a danish metal site called www.Clonemetal.dk. They were very impressed by the band and especially what was their most recent album at the time Austral Alien. I picked up the album and have listened to it many times since.

Iīll spill the cards from the start though. Alchemist are VERY influenced by Killing Joke and especially nineties Killing Joke like Pandemonium and Democracy. Itīs not ripp off though so donīt worry. Adam Agius has a voice that sometimes sound like Tommy Victor from Prong and sometimes he sings in a more New Wave vein. On this album heīs not so pissed of though and donīt use the Tommy Victor voice much.

There are many keyboard sounds playing under the actual music, and this is mainly why Alchemist are a bit prog ( I donīt find them to be prog, but I guess someone is australien in here, and wanted them on this site), because that is about it for the prog leanings.

There are aggressive songs on the album like First Contact, Backwards Journey and Epsilon, but the more new age songs ( still metal) dominate. There are some really standout tracks in this style on the album like: Solarburn and Speed of Life which are really beautiful.

This album is not essential to prog heads, but Killing Joke and Prong fans will love this. A good solid album.

3 stars Alchemist is a metal band that mixes influences from industrial metal scene (alternance of clear and harsh vocals on some tracks, in the vein of Fear Factory, vocals reminiscent of Pitch Shifter's earlier efforts), Killing Joke at the time of 'Extremities, dirt and various repressed emotions' (the vocalist is also clearly influenced by Jaz Coleman), and stoner rock in the style of Queens of the Stone Age. I f we dig deeper, we can also find some cold-wave influences (Siouxsie and the Banshees or the more recent Editors). The music deals with harsh vocals (Killing Joke-type) alterned with clear vocals, excellent overall drumming without overabundance of time changes but with enough diversity to keep the listener interested. Keyboards are also present to support the sci-fi themes of the songs. Overall, this is a good album but 3 stars seems to be the most appropriate rating as this is not a prog album per se.

4 stars Next chapter on the speedway to the galaxy. Austal Alian is another enjoyable album from Alchemist. Due to the focus on tight playing and fast riotous rhythms, the album has a slightly more industrial feel then its predecessors. But as the songs are strong as ever and the vocals keep their distinctive diversity, there's still enough to please a metal endorsing prog fan here. Alpha Cappella Nova Vega is the high point and might even serve as a perfect introduction to this band. With its fine echo laden guitar strumming, hypnotizing mantra and steadily building crescendo, the song is immediately accessible. The remainder of the album is right up to the same height but might take you a bit more time to digest.
