Review by b_olariu
4 stars Soul Secret from Italy to me is a very strong prog metal band with almost a decade career so far and two albums released, but with all that they are quite unkown in prog metal circles and is a damn shame because they offer a very solid, well written type of prog metal. They released first album in 2008 and the second in october 2011 named Closer to daylight. This is a fantastic prog metal album that every serious fan must discover, really. I was impressed by this offer because the musicianship from here is top notch and the instrumental arrangements are killer, never to atached by the new voice of Fabio Manda, I mean he is ok, but nothing really special. Long album with elaborated passages, lots of tempo changes, duels between guitar and keyboards, lenghty pieces, one clocking over 9 min, 2 around 8 min and a closer of almost 17 min reveals a high class prog metal and how talented and great this band is. Highlights to me The Shelter and Pillar of sand, he we have some very strong instrumental parts, complicated twists, speacially I like a lot the keybords from this album, very colorfull passages and very well performed, very nice. The guitar is also strong and has some spectacular moments like on the closer Aftermath for ewxample. Some invited guests here , like Marco Sfogli on guitar (the guitar player of James La Brie on solo albums and aswell has two albums under his name released so far ) appears on River's Edge , this pieces has on solo section a very fusion feel because of Sfogli type of aproach , nice parts and the former voice of Sieges Even and the voice of Subsignal - Arno Menses appear on last track Aftermath. All in all a fairly strong prog metal album that offers a lot for fans of this type of music, elaborated complex instrumental parts that show how big potential this band has. 4 stars easy, Soul Secret needs a far more exposer then has today, they really know to play and creat something strong in this field to much time over populated by copy/paste bands. Similar in musical aproach with Mind Key, Empty Tremor or Twinspirits all prog metal bands from Italy.
