DEMIANS sounds like a mix of American Post-Grunge/Alternative MTV rock and Modern Prog a-la PORCUPINE TREE, RIVERSIDE and the likes - I learned this from a friend before actually listening to the album itself. Wow, I thought, this must be huge! Yes, it should be, it could be, but not for me. Unfortunately, alternative attitude dominates the proggy one, and I wouldn't be against that if the material itself was questionless. Where are those catchy melodies Modern Prog is known for? Where's the atmosphere? Where's difference between tracks, after all? Well, if you like Modern Prog in vein of above-mentioned bands (PORCUPINE TREE is the strongest I believe), better check DEMIANS on author's MySpace before getting his CD. A matter of taste, nothing more, but I don't like what I heard
