4 stars Cosmic Nomads from Australia capture my attention few years back when I first discover their second album Vultress. It was a nice heavy prog release with catchy playing and intresting arrangements. Now I've reached to the third album from their catalogue named Millennium released in 2008. Well this is it, heavy prog of the highest calibre. The head of the band Ray Vanderby responsable for keyboards and vocals done a great job here. As other reviewers observe on this album, Vanderby take themes from classical composers as Bach for example and melted in Cosmic Nomads tradition, the result is retty great. The opening Millennium Toccata is absolutely killer, heavy organs, plenty of hammond interludes, nice guitars all melted with classical influences. Another highlights are Global Heat and Where the Lions Weep, both very much in Uriah Heep or Atomic Rooster tradition with almost ELP keyboards characteristics. All in all a quite underrated band to larger public, both Vultress and this album worth to be investigated if you like heavy prog with hammond all over the place. For me 4 stars easy.
