3 stars After some years break, these Italians is back with their new opus. This time with a concept album.

Eldritch is veterans in the progressive metal scene. Their brand of progressive metal is based on super fast melodic guitar solos, mid tempo songs, plenty of bass and drums in the bottom of the mix which makes walls and floor vibrate like if in a middle of an earthquake, a couple of ballads, great vocals and minimal use of keyboards. The original progressive metal sound, in other words.

Gaia's Legacy is about Hurricane Katrine and how that destroyed New Orleans, Louisianna and the most poorest districts of Missouri in USA. It is about the environmental disaster we are facing, according to this band. The lyrics is telling us to stop raping this planet.

The music is plenty electric with lots of electric guitars and electric keyboards. There are plenty of guitar solos here. There is also a lot of good melodies too. My gripe is that there is no great songs here. I suspect the fans of this band gets what they want and more. And that is what it is all about. Keeping the fans happy and perhaps getting some more too. Which they may get with this album. This album is worth checking out if you are into progressive metal.
