4 stars Hubi's second album from the Trilogy, named Kailash from 2006, but third from his solo career. As you might guessed this is another concept album , like the previous one about the Himalayas, Mount Kailash, Tibet and the secrets of ancient Buddhist/Hindu culture, so another intristing little stories behind this release. While the previous ralbum was outstanding both musicaly, lyrical and visualy, this one is not a step down at all from Emocean from 2004. Pieceas are from good to great again, Hubi meisel shines here on every single note he play and sing. He fits like a glove in this kind of prog metal, who by the way is not your typical prog metal thet you hear every day, is more towards hard rock with a lot of keys added and very strong guitar interplays. Again Maisel gathered aroud him a bunch of great musicians from prog metal, besides Marcel Coenen ,Lau and Daniel Flores, who were on previous album, he mange to bring another two great virtuosos Johan Niemann the bass player from Therion and Jorge Salán on guitar from Mago de Oz. So a line up who sure make envy many bands from today. Every single piece is a winner, from slow to more up beat instrumental passages, this Kailash is great album to listen and very strong lyrics as well. The musicianship is top notch not to mention Hubi Meise's voice, excellent and very strong is his range. The best pieces are all, maybe with a plus one opening track Potala Palace, Red Oracle and the longest one clocking around 11 minutes -Wheel Of Life. A good album to aquire if you are on this kind of music. Again the cover art and the inner sleeve is outstanding made. My version is in digi pack format with two bonus tracks and is available on LionMusic like the previous one Emocean. Maybe not as good as Emocean but worth investigate both albums who offerd a prog metal hard to forget these days. 4 stars for sure. Recommended, looking forward for the next and final release from the Trilogy.
