3 stars Swiss band TIME GRID can trace its origins back to 2001, when Steve Huber, Remi Poussier and Yves Marguet hooked up with each other. Mathias Reuser joined when the band was officially formed towards the end of the year, and their debut album was mostly written during the next few years. Several line-up alterations and some years later the album itself was recorded, and self-released by the band as the CD "Life" in January 2013.

Melodic progressive metal is what Time Grid provides on their debut album "Life". Not limiting themselves to a purebred progressive metal expression, they incorporate a fair few details from AOR and hard rock as well as the occasional jazz rock inspired detail in their compositions, and the keyboard textures may arguably be a tad more influenced by classical symphonic music as well. All the elements don't gel perfectly all the time on this production to my ears however, but those with a particular fancy for the most melodic oriented parts of the progressive metal style should find this disc well worth exploring.
