4 stars Unexpected great surprise

Neo Prophet is a progressive rock band comeing from Belgium, formed in 2005 they manage to release first album only this year named Monsters. I was very pleasent surprised about the music , the voice, everything is well done here, very good construncted and with catchy pieces. Whwn I first heared this album, I said - wow - they sound so much like Savatage, even the voice of Hans 'Mac' sometimes remind me of good old times when John Oliva ruled the metal scene. The arrangements, the atmosphere, how they think the keyboards elements remind me a lot of Savatage, but they are not a copy, Neo Prophet have enough good and excellent moments on this album to show us that they are not a copy of anyone. After some 5-6 spining , the result was for me a n excellent addition to my collection and I hope to anyone who gets this album, I can't recommended enough, belive me one of the best from 2009. The music is very strong, very heavy in places full of great and intelligent progressive arrangements who melted very nice with some stunning keyboards lines made by Sjoerd 'CAP' Bruyneel , I have to congratulated this man because is brilliant what he does here, very strong ideas and superb musicianship. What I like more is the album is very joyful , very energic, not a moment to respiro, great album. Every piece is a total winner, 911 Pianoid or Bonless are perfect examples of sheer brilancey of this very talented band . I was taken by surprise in a positive way by this belgian band, but in the end this album is awesome, one of most enjoyble album I've heared from 2009. 4 stars for sure, recommended, the ones who enjoy Savatage , but also with some neo prog elements added this is the answer. Well done guys!!!!!!
