Review by b_olariu
3 stars Deventter is a young progressive metal band from Brazil with two albums in their pocket since now. The 7th dimension is their first album from 2007. From the begging I want to add that this first relase of the band is a good album but far from being excellent or exciting. Clearly influenced by bands like Dream Theater around( Train of thought era) and Pain of Salvation, two bands that are not among my fav prog metal outfits, so this album is in my opinion more like a follower then a real leader in this genre. While is quite good in places, what I don't like is that the album has very fiew instrumental passages, the talking instead is all over. Even the longest pieces from here, clocking around 12 min - A Paradox of Self Destruction is no diffrent, I mean talk talk and talk and only when the pieces is almost over around 8 min , they begun to show as some real instrumental arrangements, not bad, really, but I wanted more then 2 min from 12 to be instrumental, in the end an ok pieces. Now the best moments of the album are for sure in the four parts of the piece The longest day. For ex the part I - Sorrow is excellent, great piece, keyboard orientated with symphonic touches, it sounds like a real orchestra, great arrangements, the rest of the parts are also good. The band tries and most of the time succed to come with an enjoyble album, but sometimes they sound to modern for me, If I want a prog metal in my CD player I want something with blistering kyboards , beating drums and great vocals. a thing that only partial is here. Not realy bad for a debute but is long way 'till this guys will realy convinceing me that they worth attention in the future in this genre. 3 stars, a good one overall, but nothing really exciting or over the top, good and nothing more..
