4 stars US band PHIDEAUX is the creative vehicle of composer and musician Phideaux Xavier. His tenure as a recording artists stretch back more than 25 years, but Phideaux as a band unit didn't appear until 2003. "Infernal" is the ninth studio production to appear under this moniker, and was released through Phideaux's own label Bloodfish music in the summer of 2018.

Those who know and love Phideaux's work will find a lot of pleasure from this long awaited double album as well, concluding a three part conceptual journey in good style and in a compelling manner. Retro-oriented progressive rock with symphonic rock orientation is the name of the game here, but where the stars of the show and the most vital ingredients, at least to my ears, are the vocals, the piano and the acoustic guitar. Those who love and cherish a well developed story and lyrics of the kind that begs for analysis and interpretations should also find this album to be worth seeking out, in addition to existing fans and those with a general taste for accessible, well made retro-oriented progressive rock.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
