4 stars CLOSE TO PERFECTION!Yes,this is what we can say after a first audition of a trully spectacular debut album of this unbelievebly talented Canadian band!Their music is quite original and,definitellly extremelly technique!They have such a solid compositional arsenal,and for a debut album it's quite astonishing!The dramatic voice of PIERRE ST JEAN is giving to HEAVEN'S CRY something very personal and particular from the point ov view of the intensity of the artistical act!They have ,as I 've told before,amazing technical skills-something really scarry-but in the end their music is quite melodic-and that's paradox-technical but melodic in the same time-a true musical alchemy!!!!The production is excellent and each instrument sound crystal clear-a special mention for the bass-trully sensational mixed!I think that sometimes HEAVEN'S CRY sound like PAIN OF SALVATION -from the point of view of the intensity of the musical message,but it's obviously more metalized and uptempo!Complicated compositions and clever synth passages in a very dense instrumental display!FOOD FOR THOUGHT SUBSTITUTE is a musical pearl,that kind of album thet when you make a new audition you discover each time something new!WARNING-it's not an easy audition-that's for sure-but those who adore technical prog metal will be plenty satisfied by an album .musically and techically speaking,close to perfection! 4,5 STARS for an unbelieveble debut!
