4 stars Revelation Project is a totaly unknown band in progressive metal world and is a damn shame, they release so far a single album in 2005 self titled, a band formed around Graeme Swallow who's christians belives made him to make this album. It's obvious that the leader obtain for a concept album with biblical references and christian lyrics. The album sounds very strong, more towards symphonic side of prog metal, but with very catchy and inventive passages. Each member shines here, specially the female keybordist Chelsea Wagner who has some splendid arrangements. The voice of Tom Bender is ok and fits very well in this context. Overall the music , I found to be a heavier version of Kansas in places, even the vocal parts are very close. The music has complex passages, slower moments, each instrument is whre it belongs. As previous reviewers said I don't think that the voice and song writting are below music, just listen to the excellent second piece from here, the instrumental Decay, full of brilliant arrangements and inventiv symphonic parts who melted very well with the metal ones, third piece Children is another good ex of solid songwritting, another instrumental one Glory shows that this band worth a wider recognition, really. Overall the album is quite well made, with catchy choruses and superb keybords passages. Revelation Project remind me in places of Symphony X or Kansas , with the symphonic elements combined with progressive metal gives a great album unfairly unnoticed here and elsewhere. I will give a solid 4 stars, a great album that goes to unnoticed in prog metal circles. CD available at cdbaby. Recommended.

Graeme Swallow has done an excellent job with the composing, wit ... (read more)

3 stars The music on this CD rates as a masterpiece. However, the vocals and songwriting rate far below. The song writing rates a 3 while the vocals rate only a 1. If you want to enjoy excellent musicianship and arrangements, this is a great CD, but if you want good vocals to go along with that tal ... (read more)
