3 stars Empty Tremor is back after 6 year gap in prog metal filed. Well, I was looking forward for this new release, because on one hand I like this band how sounds, specialy their best album to date Eros and Thanatos and on other hand the vocalist , Giovanni de Luigi is back afte 10 years outside the band. Some new musicians here, like the drumer from Twinspirits, Genius, etc - Dario Ciccioni is here but also Liverani, who was the head of the band in past years are no more involved in the band today, the keybords are handleed by Marco Scott Gilardi . Now, the new album was released in october 2010 named Iridium and is to me a good album, pleasent most of the time, well played compositions, but, there is a but, not a single piece shines, realy, all are good and nothing more. Even is good and desearves 3 stars is kinda far in arrangements, inventivity with Eros and Thanatos, maybe is on same level with predecesor Alien Inside. The musicianship is ok, they all know bussines, but the pieces suffers in great progressive metal elements. All instruments sounds good, specially the keybords on couple of pieces are great , the guitar aswell, the voice of De Luigi is ok, maybe little to laid back in places, there is no more that vein or balls like in the past albums. So, a good album, but I can't give more then 3 stars , thats a fact, really, is not spectacular is not excellent either, is only good and nothing more, 6 years are kinda too much to release only a good album , for that period was needed the result to be better, maybe in the future. 3 stars.
