3 stars Project Creation is the brainchild of Portugese multi-instrumentalist Hugo Flores. "Dawn on Pyther" is the second chapter in an ongoing series of concept albums, the first being "The Floating World" released in 2005.

Musically this is a wild mix of ambient moods, atmospheric metal and prog metal; at times spiced with folk influences. The music scores high on melodramatic and epic moods; with layers of synths, dark-tinged synth sounds and epic guitars lay the foundation for the dramatics; and the vocals from male and female vocalists alike strengthening the melodramatic feel even further.

Concept album, sci-fi story and bombastic melodrama does make this sound a bit like Ayreon; and the similarities are certainly there. This music is more complex; but should appeal to the same crowd.

Review by b_olariu
2 stars Project Creation is a progressive metal band from Portugal formed around the well known (mostly in Portugal and Spain) musician Hugo Flores. Besides his olo career he formed in 2002 Project Creation , reaching now at number 2 album named dawn on phyter from 2007. I was little shocked by this album, not in a very good way, because this is to my ears some organised chaos with lots of key noodleings. The music is not the traditional prog metal I hear every day, I mean is more towards symphonic metal with duo female/male vocals, but not a one very well done. First, the sound is horrible, is like they don't know each other as a band and now try to focus on what they want to play, and the result is a mixt of everything, high pitch vocals when doesn't suport the piece, to much key solos when is not necessarly in a moody pieces, and some truly awful male vocal parts. The music is not necessarly very bad, is mostly because they don't have a precise scop of what they want to play, they just play, each musician of his language and as a whole is something almost impossible to listen at once. I said earlier that I was shocked because I know Hugo Flores solo career and specialy Atlantis album, and is miles away better than this project, like earth to sun. I'm a fan of progressive metal but this is to much for me, I listend more then 5 times to fully apreciated this issue but was almost impossible to give more then 2 stars, ok 2.5. Zara Quiroga and Alda Reis remind me in places of Anneke of The Gathering, but at least the dutch girl realy knew how to make her voice in something wonderful, and I don't know who is Zara and who is Alda realy, same tone. Now the male vocals are absolutly a desaster Paulo Pacheco , Links eevn Flores done some parts are truly unintristing to the limits, those guys have no voice, they are under the tone and not realy fits the music. Some sax , flute are thrown between prog elements to be more diverse the music but doesn't help to be a total forgetful album to me. 2 stars, for fans or collectors only doesn't matter, is still unpleasent to me. The pieces are long and I had hard times to understand what is going on on some of them, chaos. Not recommended, I have nothing against the band, I apreciated Hugo Flores in his solo career but this is poor.

P.S - I think they were more concentrated in makeing a good cover art then on music, the booklet is well done and the cover art aswel, but the music no.

4 stars Hugo Flores returns with Project Creation. Flores is accompanied, once again, by several Portuguese musicians, among them Linx (ex-Forgotten Suns), Vasco Patrício (from ptRocker), Shawn Gordon (from Progrock) or Fred Lessing, in a total of 10 guests. The style is the same as the previous "Floating ... (read more)

2 stars I have to begin with a sigh. I tried very hard to like this album. After years of repeated attempts to do so, I have unfortunately found that this music is not for me. I'll do my best to explain why, but first here's why I wanted to like it so badly. First, the concept behind this sounds lik ... (read more)

5 stars Great release! This is modern prog rock with excellent guitar work and furious solos, laid over remarkable electronic textures. Zara and Alda are also unique in their vocal styles and featured throughout the whole record. Linx is also a tremendous singer, providing a unique tone and feel to the t ... (read more)

1 stars For three weeks and maybe 15 plus listenings I have tried to like this. I still prefer fingernails on a chalk board. I am extremely liberal when it comes to my progessive rock. I know that if I don't like it the first, second or so on, I will probably like it by the 10 listens. That was impossib ... (read more)
