Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars This is the latest from Italy's DGM. A Prog-Metal band who blasts us with double bass drumming throughout. A new vocalist for this one in Mark Basile and he does a great job here. I found that there wasn't a lot of variation on this album, and as I mentioned there's way too much double bass drumming for my taste.

"Hereafter" features lots of synths and double bass drumming early on. It settles some before a minute with vocals. It turns mellow before 3 minutes then kicks back in hard. "Enhancement" opens with a barrage of double bass then it settles before a minute with vocals. "Not In Need" kicks in right away and again settles some when the vocals arrive. "No Looking Back" builds as vocals come in after a minute. Keys and drums lead after 3 minutes. A guitar solo before 4 minutes.

"Trapped..." has this marching-like rhythm with choir-like vocals.Then it kicks in. Great sound. "...In A Movie" is a good uptempo rocker. "Away" kicks in before a minute. A nice crunchy sound here. It settles with vocals as contrasts continue. "Heartache" turns full rather quickly. Reserved vocals with riffs follow. "Rest In Peace" is uptempo with vocals. "Brand New Blood" has this hard hitting intro. Double bass drumming galore after a minute. "Fading & Falling" opens with gentle guitar and reserved vocals. Keys join in. It kicks in after a minute.

A good album but it doesn't suit my taste in Metal that well.

The album is hea ... (read more)

4 stars Do you like the heavier side of Dream Theater? Are you interested in listening some non-lame high-pitch vocals? (sorry, La Brie) Then DMG is for you. Labeled by some people as "the european answer to DT", "Frame" is an album that delivers great metal with catchy tunes and an intense groove. Thi ... (read more)
