My Soliloquy biography
Formed initially as SOLILOQUY in 2002 by multi-instrumentalist Pete MORTEN (NIGHTMARE WORLD, THRESHOLD, METALLOID, ex-POWER QUEST) in UK, the band only managed to release a couple of demos in their early stages of their career (''The Creative Principle'' in 2002 and ''Lateral Thinking'' in 2005). By 2007 the E.P. ''Esoterica'' had been released and several shows with PAGANS MIND, POWER QUEST, OLIVER WAKEMAN, and THRESHOLD had taken place with MORTEN joining permanently the latter for their world tour in the same year. Several personal issues and line-up changes led to the delay of a full-length work which finally came in 2013 entitled ''The Interpreter'' and released through Sensory Records. Pete MORTEN recorded all instruments apart from the drums, executed by Damon ROOTS. The 2013 line-up of the band consists also of Chris SHARP (bass), Andy BERRY (keyboards, ex-CONDEMNED SOUL) and Mike GILPIN (guitars, backing vocals).

Melodic heavy progressive metal with touches of 'quirkiness', the sound of MY SOLILOQUY will appeal to fans of acts such as THRESHOLD and VANDEN PLAS.

3 stars Originally just called Soliloquy, this band was formed by Pete Morten as long ago as 2002, but they have only recently released this their debut album. Some of the reason for it taking so long is that Pete has been playing guitar with Threshold since 2007, but also apart from Damon Roots on drums this ended up being a solo album as Pete provides everything else. However, the band is now back to being a full unit, as they have been joined by Chris Sharp (bass), Andy Berry (keyboards) and Mike Gilpin (guitars, backing vocals). This doesn't sound as if it was a solo project though, as Pete is a very skilled musician as well as a great singer. True, the keyboards may not be as in your face and dynamic as some prog metal outfits, but the guitars more than make up for that.

Although covering a similar genre to Threshold this is actually quite a different form as there is a lot of space within the arrangements, and not nearly as much intensity. That's not to say that this album doesn't belt it out as it does, but there are bits and pieces contained within that almost don't feel like they belong to the same band as they take the music in a quite different direction. Renowned prog producer Rob Aubrey has taken control of this, and that must have been a deliberate approach to take a step away from Threshold, and give the music a more prog sound as opposed the more metallic that would have come across if he had used Karl.

Overall this is an enjoyable romp, and I certainly didn't realise that he is such a strong singer. Obviously fans of Threshold are going to be intrigued with this, but if you enjoy any prog metal, especially those that can be lighter in places then this is for you.

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
