4 stars Scottish composer and musician Stewart BELL is first and foremost known as a key member of progressive rock band Citizen Cain (also known as Xitizen Cain), initially handling the keyboard duties but over the years also catering for the drums for their albums. "The Antechamber of Being Part 1" is his first solo album, self-released in 2014.

If you are the kind of person that enjoys an ambitious, epic conceptual album and have a general fondness for both neo-progressive and classic symphonic art-rock, Stewart Bell's first solo album is one that is worth giving a closer inspection. Especially if you have a soft spot for creations of this kind that hone in on darker moods and atmospheres, and incorporate some metal-oriented details here and there to further strengthen and emphasize that aspect of the material explored.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
