3 stars This is Hugo Flores new project called PROJECT CREATION. I just reviewed "Out Of Place" by his former band called SONIC PULSAR. Both bands are fairly heavy and Hugo is really into concept albums, so that's what we get here with "Floating World", all 71 plus minutes of it. He's enlisted Linx on vocals. Linx sang on the "Snooze" album by FORGOTTEN SUNS. All three of these bands i've mentioned are from Portugal by the way.

"The Floating World" opens with lots of atmosphere.The guitar starts to make some noise before 1 1/2 minutes then it kicks in. Nice bass 4 minutes in and cello follows. Later on we get some heaviness with piano. "Living Under A Blue Sky" sounds good especially the fat bass lines and the guitar work. Sax and a calm before 2 1/2 minutes. Synths follow then it kicks back in. "The Desert Planet" opens with piano, cello and atmosphere. Some female vocal melodies and drums too. "The Civilzation" opens with spacey synths. It kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes. Vocals follow. Contrasts continue. "Mechanical Dragonflies" features more atmosphere and some flute and female vocals. Drums start to create a beat. Male vocals late. "Arriving" opens with sax and other sounds including deep bass after a minute. Male then female vocals follow. "Warming Up To The Machines" builds until we get some passionate vocals and bass. A big finish on this one. "Artificial Satellite" features percussion, flute and atmosphere. It kicks in at 1 1/2 minutes. Great sound ! Vocals join in. It settles 4 1/2 minutes in but it's still powerful.

"Intervening" is a short piece consisting of atmosphere and synths throughout. "Creating Atmosphere" is something this band has done lots of on this album. Of course this song also has lots of it. "First Species" is really more of the same. It picks up after a minute then settles 4 minutes in. "The Shining Planet" again opens with atmosphere this time guitar makes some brief noise and keys come in. Female vocals arrive.It kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes. I like the guitar before 3 minutes. Male vocals follow.More great guitar before 4 minutes. "Cheops" opens with flute and atmosphere. Spoken words then reserved vocals. It does get fuller then settles again. "Returning Home" opens with piano then the drums join in. Vocals as the sound gets fuller. Tasteful guitar 3 minutes in. It settles as contrasts continue.

Good album. I really like all the atmosphere but overall this album has failed to captured my imagination.

2 stars Project Creation is a progressive metal band from Portugal formed around the well known (mostly in Portugal and Spain) musician Hugo Flores. Besides his olo career he formed in 2002 Project Creation , reaching now at number 2 album named dawn on phyter from 2007. I was little shocked by this album, not in a very good way, because this is to my ears some organised chaos with lots of key noodleings. The music is not the traditional prog metal I hear every day, I mean is more towards symphonic metal with duo female/male vocals, but not a one very well done. First, the sound is horrible, is like they don't know each other as a band and now try to focus on what they want to play, and the result is a mixt of everything, high pitch vocals when doesn't suport the piece, to much key solos when is not necessarly in a moody pieces, and some truly awful male vocal parts. The music is not necessarly very bad, is mostly because they don't have a precise scop of what they want to play, they just play, each musician of his language and as a whole is something almost impossible to listen at once. I said earlier that I was shocked because I know Hugo Flores solo career and specialy Atlantis album, and is miles away better than this project, like earth to sun. I'm a fan of progressive metal but this is to much for me, I listend more then 5 times to fully apreciated this issue but was almost impossible to give more then 2 stars, ok 2.5. Zara Quiroga and Alda Reis remind me in places of Anneke of The Gathering, but at least the dutch girl realy knew how to make her voice in something wonderful, and I don't know who is Zara and who is Alda realy, same tone. Now the male vocals are absolutly a desaster Paulo Pacheco , Links eevn Flores done some parts are truly unintristing to the limits, those guys have no voice, they are under the tone and not realy fits the music. Some sax , flute are thrown between prog elements to be more diverse the music but doesn't help to be a total forgetful album to me. 2 stars, for fans or collectors only doesn't matter, is still unpleasent to me. The pieces are long and I had hard times to understand what is going on on some of them, chaos. Not recommended, I have nothing against the band, I apreciated Hugo Flores in his solo career but this is poor.

P.S - I think they were more concentrated in makeing a good cover art then on music, the booklet is well done and the cover art aswel, but the music no.

5 stars Great release! This is modern prog rock with excellent guitar work and furious solos, laid over remarkable electronic textures. Zara and Alda are also unique in their vocal styles and featured throughout the whole record. Linx is also a tremendous singer, providing a unique tone and feel to the tracks.

Stand-out songs are the Epic The Dawn on Pyther and the amazing Flying Thoughts. Dragonfly Garden is a standout piece as well, featuring excellent piano lines. Voyage of the Dragonfly closes with a truly wonderful piano vs flute dialog.

Dawn On Pyther is a magnificent album to anyone that loves music. Also, as a plus, with the beautiful artwork you have an album more than worth having. Highly recommended!

Review by danzx

1 stars For three weeks and maybe 15 plus listenings I have tried to like this. I still prefer fingernails on a chalk board. I am extremely liberal when it comes to my progessive rock. I know that if I don't like it the first, second or so on, I will probably like it by the 10 listens. That was impossible here.

The one plus is the production...after that I can't say much. There seems to be little cohesion in the compostions as they are all over the place. Screeching female vocals out of tune with the rhythm section. Guitars aimlessly wailing over walls of synthesizers. It reminded me a of playing a Hawkwind album backwards. This band has been repeatedly compared to Ayreon and even been called the Portuguese version of the aformentioned band. I love Ayreon and I heard very little resemblence to that band.

If you prefer tight and melodic compositions avoid this one. If you prefer techinical prog metal..again avoid. If you like cool album art then maybe.

3 stars Project Creation is the brainchild of Portugese multi-instrumentalist Hugo Flores. "Dawn on Pyther" is the second chapter in an ongoing series of concept albums, the first being "The Floating World" released in 2005.

Musically this is a wild mix of ambient moods, atmospheric metal and prog metal; at times spiced with folk influences. The music scores high on melodramatic and epic moods; with layers of synths, dark-tinged synth sounds and epic guitars lay the foundation for the dramatics; and the vocals from male and female vocalists alike strengthening the melodramatic feel even further.

Concept album, sci-fi story and bombastic melodrama does make this sound a bit like Ayreon; and the similarities are certainly there. This music is more complex; but should appeal to the same crowd.

3 stars This is an interesting release, with lots of rich musical moods and to a certain extent original sounds. But it is not a good album per se, but hopefully a promising start where seeds of forthcoming greatness can be heard.

Musically we're speaking progressive metal, mixed with lots of ambient sounding moods; where the synth seems to be the central focus of the musical output. Despite of that; Ayreon was the closest musical reference I could make for this release - perhaps due to the science fiction story on display as well as the grandiosity of the soundscape served here.

What doesn't work in my point of view is the structure and coherence of some of the individual songs, as well as soundscapes that sometimes contain too many sounds fighting to be heard.
