Mytra Progressive Metal

Review by toroddfuglesteg

2 stars Not exactly original exciting music, Sagittarius.

This is the third EP from this band. I reviewed their second EP some weeks ago on the back of the interview I did with them. Both EPs are free downloads, btw.

Sagittarius has not ditched the obvious references to being a modern day EP from The Shadows. My point here is that both bands does play instrumental, electric guitar riffs based music. The comparissons to Dream Theater is also very obvious. But Mythra has moved a couple of steps towards industrial electronica on Sagittarius though. Something that adds a lot of much needed substance and textures to their music.

This is by no means a good EP. Something anyone here can check out themselves through the free downloads from their homepage. But Sagittarius is a step in the right direction for Mytra and a worthy download.

2.5 stars

Mytra Progressive Metal

Review by toroddfuglesteg

2 stars A new name to me. I did an interview with this Hungarian band and downloaded their two free demos. This one is their second demo.

Mytra does instrumental metal with some electronica and symph prog influences. The music is guitar riff based. The music is well played and the sound is also good.

My gripes with this demo is that this is not exactly original music. It is like listening to The Shadows taking on classical music. Well, not quite that bad. But the songs on this demo is unimaginative and very safe. Mytra does not take much chances here. The electronica bits may sound a bit innovative. But Mytra is not alone in adding electronica as spice to some pretty ordinary guitar riffs.

In short, Mytra is playing a far too safe game on this demo. More soul and more identity is required next time around.

2 stars (barely)

Thanks to Plankowner for the artist addition.
