2 stars Project Creation is a progressive metal band from Portugal formed around the well known (mostly in Portugal and Spain) musician Hugo Flores. Besides his olo career he formed in 2002 Project Creation , reaching now at number 2 album named dawn on phyter from 2007. I was little shocked by this album, not in a very good way, because this is to my ears some organised chaos with lots of key noodleings. The music is not the traditional prog metal I hear every day, I mean is more towards symphonic metal with duo female/male vocals, but not a one very well done. First, the sound is horrible, is like they don't know each other as a band and now try to focus on what they want to play, and the result is a mixt of everything, high pitch vocals when doesn't suport the piece, to much key solos when is not necessarly in a moody pieces, and some truly awful male vocal parts. The music is not necessarly very bad, is mostly because they don't have a precise scop of what they want to play, they just play, each musician of his language and as a whole is something almost impossible to listen at once. I said earlier that I was shocked because I know Hugo Flores solo career and specialy Atlantis album, and is miles away better than this project, like earth to sun. I'm a fan of progressive metal but this is to much for me, I listend more then 5 times to fully apreciated this issue but was almost impossible to give more then 2 stars, ok 2.5. Zara Quiroga and Alda Reis remind me in places of Anneke of The Gathering, but at least the dutch girl realy knew how to make her voice in something wonderful, and I don't know who is Zara and who is Alda realy, same tone. Now the male vocals are absolutly a desaster Paulo Pacheco , Links eevn Flores done some parts are truly unintristing to the limits, those guys have no voice, they are under the tone and not realy fits the music. Some sax , flute are thrown between prog elements to be more diverse the music but doesn't help to be a total forgetful album to me. 2 stars, for fans or collectors only doesn't matter, is still unpleasent to me. The pieces are long and I had hard times to understand what is going on on some of them, chaos. Not recommended, I have nothing against the band, I apreciated Hugo Flores in his solo career but this is poor.

P.S - I think they were more concentrated in makeing a good cover art then on music, the booklet is well done and the cover art aswel, but the music no.
