3 stars Maxwell's Demon is a band from USA with two albums in their pockets so far. First album from 2001 named Prometheus find the band in musical influences somewhere between King Crimson and Anglagard or Sinkadus, a well worth album but far from being something special. The album is all instrumental, a one track album clocking around 39 min and tells the story of Ayn Rand's short story "Anthem". There are lots of flute passages, that goes very well in this context and combined with mellotron and the rest is quite ok most of the time. Is quite diverse in songwritting, mellow parts, more up tempo, all is here, Craig Beebe the head of the band and the keyboard player done a good job, but I needed more memorable parts, I feel like I've heared this before here and there. Non the less a good record, that worth to be discovered and has same value and their next one released years later Diablo from 2009. 3 stars. Nice cover art.
