Review by aapatsos
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal and Heavy Prog Teams
4 stars SOUL CAGES is another vivid proof that Germany can produce very inspired and innovative progressive metal. Often not given the proper attention, this band from Hemer, formed in 1990, walks on the paved path of two of the greatest and most influential (although not too famous) prog metal bands in Germany; Sieges Even and Mekong Delta. The band's music, contrary to other German bands of that time e.g. Blind Guardian, Vanden Plas has not evolved from a power metal background to progressive forms: it was 'born' progressive...

I believe the fact that they have signed a contract with Massacre Records did not help them to get the recognition they deserved; often acknowledged as a metal and/or underground band. To my knowledge, the only two countries that have musically 'accepted' them are Germany and Greece. To some extent, their limited recognition is understandable due to the eclectic nature of their sound. A major contributor to this element is the characteristic German accent in the (almost eccentric) male vocals which can sometimes prevent the listeners from appreciating the music.

The second component of this eclectic character is the unusual nature of the melodies; unconventional melodies that are often dressed with beautiful, atmospheric female vocals and bizarre arrangements and harmonies. Riff-wise, the listener can hear several similarities with guitar sounds in Queensryche's (A Part of Me) and Fates Warning's (Imprisoned) late 80's releases; however, the outcome does not resemble directly to these bands and remains quite unique in nature. It is interesting to refer to those female vocals again which time and again generate a gothic, doom feeling (The Light of Day), relatively uncommon in this genre.

In addition to the previous, here you can find some technically challenging prog metal with peculiar time signatures (Result of Convenience, Pressure) that reminds of early Sieges Even and Watchtower. Although all these aspects can be successfully employed to describe CRAFT's musical directions, the main outcome remains an alloy of melodic - in its own way - prog metal. This is evident throughout the album and mostly in tracks like Falling (reminds me of brilliant Shadow Gallery melodies) which is the highlight. The inclusion of Piano and Before balances out the more technical elements of this release with simple, though deep, melodies.

I can not decide if CRAFT is musically at the same level as the band's debut but to my ears is still approaching the term 'masterpiece' and it is highly recommended to prog fans who want to challenge themselves and get out of their comfort zone.

3 stars Craft from 1999 released at Massacre records , their last album befor going almost into oblivion is another example of great and pleasent progressive metal from late '90's. Keeping the level on the previous work but with some less intristing moments here and there, Craft is a worthy album and the second best after Moments. The musici is again mainly Queensryche, Fates Warning and Sieges Even influenced band, with complx piece , but more on the melodic side, a feature that is much more in from here then on previous albums.he band is very good melting and combining together softer moments with some more edge ones, always keeping the listner very concentrate to what is listning. Again Thorsten Staroske shine shere, very pleasent voice with an unique tone of voice, I like him a lot. Musicianship excellent with clean, precise and crisp guitar arrangements who interlude excellent with the rest of the instruments. So overall another good album by this talentated band, a little less intristing then Moments, but a worthy release for sure. 3 stars easy, a band that needs a wider recognition , even is disbanded for 10 years.

4 stars Mainstream progressive metal is supposed to be catchy, long, or heavy or atmospheric. Germany's Soul Cages is not exactly those things, although they sure can double-kick a bass drum or sweep you with a pensive melody. They require repeated listens, even their more accessible album, Moments, too ... (read more)
