4 stars Rewind to the 90's

Soul Cages return to discography with "Moon", 14 years after "Craft" - and their return is what the fans would have expected: a typical or rather "classic" Soul Cages album, following the same recipe of success and most of all the unique character of the band.

The quality and the lyrical approach are still there, the clean guitars are dominating the quirky melodies and the distorted riffs bring to the surface that Rush influence a little bit more. The tone of the accented (male) and beautiful female vocals remains intact, the combination creates the haunting atmospheres of the art-rock type of progressive metal that Soul Cages profess. Self-produced this time, "Moon" sounds quite dynamic but pays more attention to the emotion and the unconventional melodies.

Comparisons to the artistic early 90's Sieges Even albums are acceptable but don't get hung on that, since Soul Cages make a sound of their own. A band that likes to remain "underground" has released one of the best albums of 2013, following what they know to do best. Not a masterpiece per se but a declaration of honest, quality progressive metal.

Best moment: Beautiful, Point One.
