3 stars Ephrat is a band from Israel taking the name from the leader Omer Ephrat, they got only one album untill now named No One's Words released in 2008. The band got quite a lot exposure in that period among prog listners, besides the great music offered there is as guest , Daniel Gildenglow from Pain of Salvation fame and aswell Steve Wilson did the mastering and mixing. Well, what we have here is a heavy prog album with some fantstic instrumental parts, mainly the guitar is top notch. Also from time to time the atmosphere goes in middle easter direction with nice flute breaks and quite great guitar passages, similar with Amaseffer in places. The opening track The show is killer. mid tempo with fantastic guita parts, aswell the sound is awesome, giving to the listner some very fine moments. If the instrumental sections are simply amazing, I'm not so atached by the vocals , both Lior Seeker and Daniel Gildenglow did a good job, but is not the vocal style I like to hear on such music, to many times going towards Porcupine Tree kind of stuff and Pain of Salvation. Anyway , Omer Epharat really know to handle the guitar and creating some crunchy riffs that goes even on prog metal territory in places, very fine moments. Besides opening track who is my fav from the album another highlight is the instrumental Blocked, some pritty dangerous guitar moments here, really awesome. All in all a fine album for sure, I like it, minus some vocal passages who drag back the rate for me, from 4 to 3.5. 3.5 it is for No one's words, fans of crunchy heavy guitars with some keybords here and there and some flute escapades, try it worth for sure.
