5 stars US band HELIOPOLIS was formed back in 2012, with a line-up of musicians that merits a description as fairly experienced, and with backgrounds from band constellations such as Mars Hollow, Ten Jinn and (cover band) Gabble Ratchet. "City of the Sun" is their debut album, and was released in the early fall of 2014 through the US label 10t Records.

As far as debut albums goes, "City of the Sun" is an impressive one. Symphonic progressive rock with a core foundation placed in the '70s, nicely blended with a late '90s-oriented US version of the same. Fans of bands like Yes and Starcastle would appear to be a key audience for this album, which sold out its first pressing in record time, and especially those amongst them who also find bands like Spock's Beard to be enjoyable.

Windhawk | 5/5 |
