Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars A strong and promising debut from this Argentinian ensemble.

Like many others, Fughu takes their cues from the back catalogue of artists like Dream Theater and Symphony X - in this case the former seems to be the main and dominating one of these. Which pretty much reveals the musical elements utilized: Powerful lead vocals, dark-tinged drawn out guitar riffs and riff patterns, organs and synth cascades as embellishments. While the tracks tend to be on the long side, with elongated soloing passages.

Fughu manage to create songs that are somewhat unpredictable at times though, and add in both subtle unexpected twists in the shape of quirky instrumental flurries, jazz-tinged details, mellow sequences and a generally more refined approach to this genre than many others do. The songs are generally well written too, and while by no means a revolution the end result is a good album with generally strong efforts overall, and a production that should be high on the shopping lists of anyone fond of classic progressive metal.
