PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Progressive Metal is a genre where there is so much excellent music left undiscovered. Often times, this somewhat undiscovered music maybe be from a band that sadly disbanded after one or two albums.

Such is the case of Clockwork. Clockwork, released one album titled Surface Tension. There is so much to enjoy on this album, and as treated as Progressive Metal fans are with this album, they are deprived that this is the only work of the talented and creative band.

What can a listener expect from this release? Lush keyboards, cretive vocal melodies and rythmns, and soaring guitar melodies.

Chris Pignatelli demonstrates the lush keyboards right off the bat with the introduction to the openting track, "Secrets of Centuries".

All throughout the albums you can expect great guitar melodies from M. Thomas Gammarino, who's work is highly influenced by that of Steve Howe and John Petrucci. The production is a little brittle regarding that of his guitar, but this is easily overcome by the lushness of all the other instruments including very diverse basses of both the fretted and frettless variety.

The vocals are one of the main selling points of this album. "If These Walls Could Talk" is a short track which showcases just how creative this band get can with Douglas Joseph Matthew Gillin's vocal arrangements in just a short song.

"Design of Enlightment" is the condensed twelve minute epic of this album, and showcases the band at their very best and most creative. Clockwork is a very expressive band that manages to combine the best elements of Progressive Metal and Symphonic Progressive Rock. The production of the album may be a little brittle, but it's very difficult for something like that to effect how much a listener can enjoy an album.

This is a four star album, it's kind of like a diamond in the rough. It's hard to believe how good it is without listening to it extensively.

4 stars Another case of a lost treasure in prog metal

Surface tension is the single album of american band Clockwork released in 1999, and what an album, simply amazing how such unknown musicians could creat such a strong and tight album. Prog metal of the highest calibre featuring some very strong and inventive keys and guitar parts. Clockwork is a forgotten band in my opinion, delivering some of the best prog metal available at the end of the '90's not only in America, but aswell in Europe. What can you expect from this album?? - a lot is a the response - lush keys, great chops on guitar, inventive drum playing and above all a real voice, not a screamer like many prog metal bands has. The album has two instrumental pieces among the rest with the voice, and are a real pleasure to listen, complex prog just for every prog metal fan, with great time changes and tight musichinship. The tracks with voice are also great, the voice of Douglas Joseph Matthew Gillin is something between Mike Patton (Faith no More) in places and sometimes he remind me of the guy from Zen (italian prog metal band), anyway good voice who fits very well in this kind of music. So the best pieces to me are:One Wing, If These Walls Could Talk and the instrumental oneThe Convolution Box, the rest are ok. A great and very underrated band and album in my opinion, who desearve a better view, great album with a lot to offer, 4 stars easely, excellent addition to any collection, really a superb and unnoticed album.

3 stars 3.5 stars. CLOCKWORK were a Prog-Metal band from the USA who released only one album back in 1999 before breaking up. Two lead guitarists and a great singer make this album a pleasing listen. They thank Sean Malone, Michael Romeo and SYMPHONY X, SHADOW GALLERY, Daniel Gildenlow and PAIN OF SALVATION among others. I was reminded of ENCHANT and FATES WARNING the most while listening to this recording.

"Secrets Of Centuries" opens with piano, flute and some strings. It kicks in before a minute. What an amazing sound ! It settles again. Vocals after 1 1/2 minutes. It kicks back in as contrasts continue. The guitar just soars before 6 minutes and I like the synths that follow. "One Wing" might be my favourite. A nice heavy rhythm as these passionate vocals come in. Great riffs follow. Love the vocal melodies too. Some incredible guitar before 5 minutes. "East Of Knowing" has this Spanish flavour throughout. I like the drums and percussion after a minute. "If These Walls Could Talk" is back to the heaviness. Vocals a minute in. Lots of excellent guitar too. We get a pastoral break of flute and acoustic guitar before it kicks back in.

"The Guardian Of Eden" is a little too eratic for my tastes, it's all over the place. It's impressive though.The guitar is fantstic 5 1/2 minutes in. "The Convolution Box" has this nice heavy soundscape. I like the guitar after 2 1/2 minutes. It settles with a Spanish flavour before 4 minutes before kicking back in. Nice bass 5 minutes in.The drumming really shines on this instrumental. A top three track. "Smile Under Sad Eyes" is a mid paced tune that's all about the lyrics. Some flute in this one and tasteful guitar after 3 minutes. "Design Of Enlightenment" is the almost 13 minute closer. Orchestral sounds before it kicks in heavily with synths. Vocals follow. Spoken female words 2 minutes in. The guitar is grinding away with vocals which is very FATES-like. Some intricate guitar work before 6 minutes. Heaviness comes back before 7 1/2 minutes. Great vocals follow.

I really wish they had been a little more one dimensional and kept it heavier, but it's still a good record despite the lighter tracks.

5 stars The debut album of a regrettably to unknown prog-metal band from the United States. SURFACE TENSION is a quite complex cd and extremly varied. Their overall style is prog- metal, no doubt, but they put in so many different types of music like Jazz, Blues etc. The album starts with "Secrets Of Cen ... (read more)

5 stars The musical talent in this now defunct band from greater Philly was beyond belief. Listen to this album. If this album came out when the genre was large these guys would have been world renowned. Every singer these guys ever had was average but the lead and drums are so good it hurts. ... (read more)
