3 stars Osada Vida is yet another band from Poland exploring what is coined as progressive music that seemingly has come out of nowhere.

Three Seats Behind a Triangle is the bands third full length release though, and it is easy to hear that this group of musicians have been plying their trade for some time. Musically moving within a triangle where bands such as Camel, Genesis and Dream Theater form the extreme boundaries, a focus on melodies and lush, flowing synths are trademarks of the band. The guitar will often be the dominating instrument; supplying acoustic licks, clean electric ones, distorted drawn out chords as well as grim metal riff patterns at times. More often than not the guitar will either contrast the synths or harmonize with it.

Mostly good compositions here too; with many fascinating moods. Sadly the vocals are not even close to being as good as the other elements here - hence the rating. With a decent or even good vocalist onboard this would have been a really good release; as is there's many interesting segments partially or fully jarred by annoyingly weak vocals.

Recommended for fans of symphonic rock with metal leanings - that doesn't mind weak vocal performance.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
