Rhetorica biography
RHETORICA is a progressive-metal band from Baia Mare, Romania, formed in 1997 as the result of the fusion of two bands, DIRTY SHIRT and LEGION. After a successful performance in the Rock Fest Seini festival, the musicians decided to make the newly-created group a permanent one.

Until 1999, the band performed in numerous concerts in Romania and received several awards. Due to personal matters from some of its members, RHETORICA was forced into a long hiatus that ended in 2004, when the members re-united and re-formed the outfit.

Immediately, the band set out to record and released their first full-length, "Ganduri" (Thoughts), in 2005, which received critical acclaim and gave the band the opportunity to enlarge its audiences by playing in more live concerts.

Line-up: Otto Ulmann (vocals, guitars), Dan Craciun (vocals), Dani Prikop (guitars), Mihai Tivadar (keys), Pal Novelli (bass), Vlad Toca (drums)

RHETORICA plays a unique brand of progressive-metal, with a special attention paid to melody. The band cites as their most important influences bands like PINK FLOYD, OPETH, DEEP PURPLE, DREAM THEATER and ELP.

Why this artist must be listed in :
RHETORICA's music pushes the boundaries of conventional metal with lush arrangements, multi-section songs, complicated textures and original structures, with special focus on melody, soaring vocals and emotional pianos, while creating a unique delivery that makes them worthy of incluion in PA.

Rhetorica Progressive Metal

Review by Dango

5 stars This conceptual album is really a great surprise for me... A real interesting band from Romania, something unique in a poor progressive scene from my country..... but to understand and taste this album you must to know romanian language because everything it's in romanian and you will lost a lot if you don't understand the great story of this album.... Nice text, nice music, nice sound but almost nobody know and taste their music because have really bad promotion (I mean, I didn't find it ANY PROMOTION FOR THIS ALBUM!!!) In this case I really don't expect any other album for this band.... It's pity.....
Thanks to The T for the artist addition.
