Point of View biography
POINT OF VIEW was founded by Lukasz Ferenc (drums) and Tomasz Grabowski (guitars) in 2003. Although Lukasz and Tomek wanted to play progressive metal music from the very beginning, it turned out that completing the line-up with people equally interested in this genre was impossible. They started to play rock/metal with a female vocalist and another guitarist, whose name was Szymon. Soon Kacper Chrzaszczewski (then a 17 year old bassist) joined the band. After playing several gigs Szymon had to leave the band for a certain period of time. Tomek and Lukasz decided to find someone who could temporarily replace him. That's when they met Bartek Kurkowski(guitars). It turned out that Bartek was as much a progressive metal freak as they are, and the guys decided that he would replace Szymon permanently. The music finally started to evolve in the right direction. Their vocalist was not keen on prog so she decided to leave the band.

The hardest period in POINT OF VIEW'S history had begun. After six months of auditioning hundreds of girls and a few men,the band had still not found a suitable vocalist,and were on the verge of breaking down. In order to prevent it Bartek decided to become their vocalist and it turned out that he isn't as bad as one could imagine,and the band started playing again. Soon Andrzej Frolow (keys) joined the band,POINT OF VIEW'S line-up was finally complete.The members of the band started composing new songs and in May (2006) they were ready to record a promo. As there was no professional sound engineer around, Bartek decided to do it all by himself. When the promo was ready it turned out that Andrzej has to leave the country for three months. After he got back the band played several gigs in Poland.

POINT OF VIEW released their first full-length album "Disillusioned" in 2007.

The info page on POINT OF VIEW'S website sums up their attitude towards their music perfectly:"Our goal is to give an outlet for our emotions,passions,dreams and fears in music.The only possible way to achieve it is to compose and perform music which is not restricted by any conventions,music that is as complex as our personalities are,one that enables us to take the listener in a travel through different states of mind..."

Playing intelligent,melodic and complex prog metal music that is similar to but in no way a copy of bands like DREAM THEATER,PAGAN"S MIND,ANDROMEDA and ZERO HOUR to name but a few,POINT OF VIEW comes highly recommended t...

Disillusioned
Point of View Progressive Metal

Review by manticornio

3 stars Rock music must be recognized by its interpretative roughness and its energetic personality. When one thinks about rock music and adds the 'metal' surname, the best image that is listened performs violent energy and breaking-neck rhythms. When heavy metal puts its base to do progressive rock, one can supposes changeable music that progresses, injected of invigorating and expressive energy. POINT OF VIEW almost achieves it, perhaps presenting rough paces and semi violent, but drowned in the coyness for not exploiting in their expression. The most coherent songs with this redemption are 'Asylum', 'Mercy killing' and 'Shame', songs more in soft and/or ballad rock, where this coyness for not exploiting in expression is not necessary. 'Reborn' and 'Point in steals' supposes the stellar moments, where the extension of time helps to bring together different movements, and the drowned thing it is presented by 'Disillusioned', 'Bleak' and 'Out of the blue', the latter also playing in the ballad coherence.

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

— First review of this album —
3 stars A new POINT OF VIEW ...

Yeah! Here we have another promising new band from Poland which offers us a three piece demo EP first of all. Produced without a professional sound engineer. No problem at all - the sound quality is good! The basis of the music is Prog Metal with references to DREAM THEATER, RIVERSIDE or QUIDAM.

But the songs are not plagiating. You can listen to them for several times in a row and they are not boring. So the band is trying to find an independent style in this subgenre and doesn't fail. The keyboard playing for example is very interesting - more symphonic as usual. Vocals are well performed. And the line-up consists of two guitars. So there is a great chance for more variety, especially when they are on the stage.

Point in time is the first song and starts with a tricky electronic intro. This track is convincing with breaks, tempo changes and it takes time to deal with - my favourite of this debut. Reborn is characterized by a typical metal riff, grooves and has a very good memorable base melody. Mercy killing has a metal cover but also contains very nice sensitive guitar work and ends with a reminiscence to David Gilmour.

POINT OF VIEW is on a good way - so I'm curious and looking forward to future releases. Rating 3.5 stars ...
