4 stars One of my fav musicians from prog metal zone ever are for sure the italians from Empty Tremor. the first two albums released by this band are excellentm being among the best in this genre, at least for me. The first album was released in 1997 and is named Apocolokyntosys. Well, this is in same league with the best of the 90s prog metal, and I mean Images and words, Carved in stone by Shadow Gallery and so on, the influences are also present on this album but is no clone for sure. What impress me every time I am listning to this first offer is how strong musicianship is, the keys and guitars are very well melted together, nice complicated shift, moods, lots of tempo changes, as might be a prog metal album. Also the singer is great, even has that LaBrie tone, Giovanni De Luigi knows very well to sing, from mellow sections to much more rockier, a good singer. The first piece is for sure my fav - The eyes of universe - is simply killer, one of the best I have ever heared in prog metal, great ideas and top notch musicianship + a great vocal passages all over. The rest of the pieces are aswell strong with no weak moments. All in all a not so well known band and album in prog metal field and is a damn shame, but belive me this guys knows bussines, specially the first two albums (this one and Eros & Thanatos) are excellent and recommended albums to all prog metal listners, worth every second. For me an easy 4 stars, nothing compares to old prog metal, the one made in the 90s.
