SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars A young Argentinian group from La Plata, formed in early 2002, which draws influences from both the Progressive Rock and Progressive Metal scenes and featured Juan Gasco on drums, Julian Di Pietro on guitars, Jorge Obeaga on keyboards, Leonidas Porto on guitars and Hugo Acuna on vocals.Soon the band though would adapt an all instrumental sound with newly acquired Sergio Topham on bass.After a demo in 2004 Hexatonica had the opportunity to record a live album at the Golden Hall of La Plata's Council and release it in 2005 under the umbrella of La Plata Producciones.

Heavily inspired by LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT, DREAM THEATER as well as E.L.P., RICK WAKEMAN and YES, Hexatonica offer over an hour of highly virtuosic and technical Prog Rock/Metal through a dynamic live performance.The material consists of both original and cover tunes and is led by sharp metallic guitars, flashy synths, huge Hammond organ parts and Classical piano passages, while the style covers a wide range of styles, from powerful Fusion/Metal to grandiose Symphonic Rock to Heavy Prog.The instrumentation is also balanced, but the huge problem comes from the band's style, which is trully far from original or fresh, often sounding like DREAM THEATER wannabees (add another band in the endless list).Everything you experience once listening to the American masters seems to be the guide of Hexatonica's music.Melodic guitars combined with energetic rhythm parts, multiple breaks blended with numerous keyboard solos, bombastic symphonic soundscapes mixed with atmospheric laid-back themes.Not bad stuff by any means, but why to listen to a band, trying to figure out if a DREAM THEATER album was lost in time?

Regarding that this is a quite hard to find CD and the pretty unpersonal music approach, I would only recommend this album to die-hard fans of Progressive Metal, who starve for anything related to the style.
