Enneade biography
ENNEADE are Progressive Metal band from Lyon,France formed in 1995.The group initially recorded and self-released three demos;Shades of Death(1996),King of Silver(1998) and Tunis Area(2001).

In 2005 they signed to the Musea label and recorded and released their first full-length album "Remembrance".The album consists of four long pieces that range from 10 to 18 minutes.It contains rumbling bass,powerful drums and intense riffs yet also has acoustic,peaceful and melodious moments,with rises in tension that evolve gradually to an anxious climax.

ENNEADE combine influences from bands such as DREAM THEATER,OPETH,KING CRIMSON and ANATHEMA and play complex,melodic and highly original progressive metal.HIGHLY recommended.

Enneade Progressive Metal

Review by Mellotron Storm

4 stars 4.5 stars. ENNEADE are a six piece band out of France and this is their debut released in 2005. I would describe their sound as being parts Post-Metal, parts Prog-Metal and parts Heavy-Prog. This is an almost 50 minute concept album with four tracks. The picture of the band in their bio here shows one of them wearing a MAGMA t-shirt. I like them already.

"King Of Silver" is my favourite and it clocks in at almost 18 minutes. Nature sounds to open that continue even when the guitar arrives before a minute but then they fade out quickly as the music comes in. A calm with vocals follows then it turns heavy 4 1/2 minutes in. Hell yeah ! The vocals before 5 1/2 minutes sound like the singer from UNDER THE SUN. This section will be reprised several times thankfully. Great sound before 8 minutes as it settles into a groove. Some atmosphere after 9 minutes as the beat and more continue. So good. Love the guitar that joins in after 10 1/2 minutes. It's heavier with riffs a minute later. My God ! Vocals are back before 12 1/2 minutes then it's heavy again 14 minutes in. Killier stuff. A calm with piano and strummed guitar 16 minutes in. Reserved vocals too then it kicks in. Yeah it does ! Strummed guitar and piano end this ride. "The Dreamscape I" has a nice relaxed but darkish sound with vocals. It settles right down after 2 1/2 minutes then it's heavier after 4 minutes and vocals join in a minute later. It turns intense when the vocals stop but they are back late.

"The Dreamscape II-IV" opens with some nice deep bass lines and drums. The synths cry out then the tempo picks up after 2 1/2 minutes. A calm before 5 1/2 minutes but the bass here is huge as the drums pound slowly. Spoken words before 6 1/2 minutes. So good ! The spoken words stop after 8 minutes then he screams. "The Dreamscape V" opens with atmosphere as drums, bass and guitar help out. Vocals just before a minute. tasteful guitar 3 minutes in. An Eastern vibe follows but it's brief. A calm 6 minutes in then the vocals return before 7 1/2 minutes. It picks up some 8 minutes in then settles back again as the vocals come and go.

I just really like their sound, in fact I like pretty much everything about this record. And it's great to hear some Metal again too.

Enneade Progressive Metal

Review by Prog-jester
Prog Reviewer

4 stars ENNEADE is a promising band of French prog-metallists, whose album I chanced to pick from Russian MALS label. 4 long tracks, 50 minutes of Top-Notch Prog and almost no information about the band - thrilling enough, isn't it? The music ENNEADE plays is not your typical Progressive Metal thing (but there are some cliches anyway ;) ). It's somewhat closer to Heavy Prog. From "King of Silver"'s powerful memorable chorus (the song is available for streaming on band's LastFM page!) to "Dreamscape"'s final "Goodbye" word you'll have MARILLION-like melodies, DREAM THEATER-like complexity, OPETH-like heavyness and KING CRIMSON- like guitar lines (some pretty enjoyable crossing tunes they create!). ENNEADE is beautifully eclectic in a best sense of this world, and I highly recommend anyone to give this album a listen. Suitable for any taste and likings, it can be you next favourite thing for weeks! Recommended!
