5 stars After listening to "Daybreaking Live" album I had discovered for myself new Roz Vitalis, although previously I listened to this band time and time again. At the present moment compositions are perceived as more mature and "grow" with musicians both physically and mentally. The sound became more heavy and dense. Due to more heavy guitar and more heavy rhythm-section "approach" of the band comes closer to progressive metal. But, at the same time, Roz Vitalis's style remains true to oneself and recognizable. Evidently, the group wants to take from prog a little bit of everything and, at the same time, to be distinctive and original. As before, there are baroque-and-medieval motives. In "Nepsis" and "Psalm 6" motives of dancing heaviness transform into tranquil transcendence. In each composition there are memorable and hit melodies. "Mother of All Rain" remains the most melodic one. The flute sounds remarkably, but I would like to hear more winds like in "The Hidden Man of the Heart" album. In general, in the future it would be better to increase quantity of wind instruments (clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French Horn). The same wishes concern use of string instruments (violin, cello, double bass, viola). The main recommendation is to move to symphonic style of music.
