Dimension biography
DIMENSION is probably the most representative band of Progressive Metal in Mexico. It was founded in the year of 1999 by four experienced musicians: David Quicho, Mane Cabrales, Aaron del Palacio and Eddie del Palacion, all from Chihuahua, Mexico.

DIMENSION has been on tour in some parts of the USA, Europe and most of their country, giving proof of their talent and trajectory in their debut opus named "Universal", released in an independent manner in 2002 and distributed worldwide by Nightmare Records (www.nightmarerecords.com). Due to its finesse and polished sound it has captured the attention of Magazines and īZines such as Rock Hard (Germany), Strutter Zine (Holland), Shapeless Zine (Italy), Metal Zone (Greece), Heavy Metal Pages (Poland) among others. The first single titled "Forbidden Game" was included in the first compilation CD of the Prog Power Festival of Atlanta, GA., USA and given airtime in most specialized radio stations. Currently, the band is working on their second production, which will enter the market in the next few months.

3 stars One of the leading prog metal acts from Mexico in last 15 years is for sure Dimension. Formed around 1999 with 3 albums in their pockets so far. For me their second release from 2007 named Ego is the most intresting one from the three. Even they had touring in Europe they remaining quite unknown to these parts of the world, but they are pretty much well known to USA and Mexico of course where they toured quite a lot. Musicaly speaking they are quite close to DT in sound. The musicians are quite capable that's for sure, a pefect example is the opening track Tree of Conscience, excellent track , the rhythmic section is brilliant. The guitars in combination with the keyboards are most of the time more then ok. All in all a pretty decent release for prog metal fans, nothing spectacular but good. Fans of DT, even Symphony X might give a try. 3 stars for sure, unknown release.

4 stars Dimension are a progressive metal band originally from Mexico who are currently located in Colorado. They are made up of two main members, David Quicho on vocals and guitars, and Mane Cabreles on drums and percussion. Very capable studio musicians fill out the band on bass and keyboards, and in addition there are two violinists, a viola player and a cello player, resulting in a symphonic metal feel throughout the album. Ego is their second album and was released in 2007, 5 years after their debut album Universal. Ego is a progressive power metal album that is sure to appeal to fans of bands like Dream Theater and Symphony X. The vocals are sung by David Quicho, who has a very unique sounding voice. At times he reminds me of Geoff Tate from Queensryche, but he most closely reminds me of Masaki Yamada, the vocalist for the 80's Japanese metal band EZO.

Ego consists of 9 songs ranging from the slow melodic metal of Dreams to the heavy power metal/thrash of The Next In Line. The must hear highlight song for progressive rock fans is the 3-part 20 minute long epic title track, which has that special something that should place it in the ranks of the classic progressive rock epics of times of yore.

This album is the type that us progressive rock fans love so much, where you will hear something new every time that you listen to it. It is what we like to refer to as a "grower". Admittedly, the first couple of times that I listened to it, I felt that it was an OK prog metal album but the voice was kind of strange and made it hard to listen to. However, after repeated listens I came to enjoy the uniqueness of his voice. Also, the use of the string quartet really started to reveal itself to me with each repeat listen and contributes to having this album stand out more in comparison to other recent albums in the traditional prog metal vein.

In my opinion this album rates 4 stars in the Prog Archives ratings system. I believe that this album is an excellent addition to any prog rock music collection; especially if that collection has a space reserved for bands like Dream Theater and Symphony X.

As good as this album is I did find the lyrics to be somewhat cryptic. Reading along with the printed lyrics in the booklet did not really help me to understand what some of the songs were supposed to be about. In addition, there are a couple of parts where either words were either mispronounced or the vocalist took poetic license with the pronunciation that made it sound a bit awkward to me. Overall though, these parts were very few. Fortunately, many prog rock fans aren't concerned about the lyrics so this shouldn't be a detraction from purchasing this excellent album.

5 stars I really was not sure if I wanted to buy this album or not. Man, am I glad I did. This album is Awesome. It has everything I want from a Prog Metal band. Great guitar riffs/solos, and some amazing keyboard work. I would say go to their myspace page and have a listen for yourself. I believe the opener Tree of Conscience and Ego the almost 20 minute epic are unbelievable. Dimension Rocks!!!
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
