4 stars Norway's progressive metal scene may never have gained as much momentum as the neighboring Swedish landscape, but acts like Tellus Requiem show that the country still has a lot to offer in the world of progressive metal. After self releasing their eponymous debut in 2010, Tellus Requiem got picked up by Nightmare Records for the release of 2013's Invictus (The 11th Hour) - a killer progressive power metal release that borrows ideas from the genre's classic releases while still coming across as fresh and modern. Fans of old school progressive metal with a heavy power metal twist should definitely check out this highlight from early 2013!

The music on Invictus (The 11th Hour) most closely resembles Symphony X around the time of V: The New Mythology Suite. Much like that classic album, the tracks here are certainly progressive, but with a much heavier and more power metal-driven edge than acts like Dream Theater or Fates Warning. I also detect a little bit of a Psychotic Waltz influence in a few tracks (particularly towards the end of "Reflections Remain" and "Twilight Hour"), and that's almost never a bad comparison to draw when it's coming from me! For this reason and others, I wouldn't venture to call Tellus Requiem a 'clone' act, although their music is something that all Symphony X enthusiasts should enjoy for sure. Fans of dynamic and powerful power metal-styled vocalists should also love Ben Rodger's singing contributions on this album, as his voice is up there with the best in the genre right now.

Invictus (The 11th Hour) also features some great songwriting, with tracks like "Twilight Hour", "Redemption", and especially "Tranquility" standing as some of the best prog metal I've heard so far this year. Top it all off with a powerful sound production and high-class musicianship, and it's hard not to be left amazed by what Tellus Requiem have conjured for their sophomore observation. Though the album perhaps sticks to its guns a bit too much for listeners craving innovation, Invictus (The 11th Hour) is still an expertly crafted release with some tremendous songwriting. Fans of Symphony X, Empty Tremor, Psychotic Waltz, and Dream Theater shouldn't miss out on this one!

3 stars Tellus Requiem is a young power/progressive metal band coming from Norway with 2 album s released so far. Their second release is Invictus (The 11th Hour) issued this year 2013. I like what I've heared here, the album has a fat sound and a very strong production, each instrument can be heared at full capacity on every pieces, and that is a good thing for sure, but not always the most important. Even the pieces are well constructed and has that catchy going one arrangements most of the time, I feel that Tellus Requien can do better then this, because the musicianship on some tracks are absolutly killer. The passages are sometimes to same as I've listned hundred times before on other bands of this type, this power/progressive metal kinda aproach is very popular in last years and many bands embrace this music. Anyway the best moments are in tracks like red horizon with some killer instrumental sections, I like very much the opera like female choirs very well integrated in this sound, Reflections Remain is avery intresting mid tempo piece that show big potential for the band, really nice, Sands of Gold is another highlight for sure. While I like as I said this album, has enough good moments to apprecited this album, overall is nothing groundbreaking or alike, influences from Symphony X or german power metal can be found here. 3.5 stars, good towards great but not fantastic, great cover art and quite odd aswell.
