4 stars Russian band MIND PORTAL was formed in 2009, and already one year after their formation they released their debut album "1/1". While their debut album apparently was assembled fairly quickly, it would take this quartet a few more years to be ready with their next CD, but in early 2014 they returned with "1/2: Thought and Matter", released through MALS Records.

Instrumental progressive metal that, roughly, can be described as belonging to the Dream Theater school of progressive metal is what Mind Portal provides on their second album "1/2: Thought and Matter". It is a well made and intriguing album, constantly moving somewhere and constantly developing, maintaining nerve, tension and interest with relative ease. A diverse and compelling production of old school progressive metal, well worth a check if you know or suspect that this is something you'd appreciate.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
