4 stars METAMORPHOSIS is a melodic symphonic rock band from Switzerland lead by the composer, vocalist, keyboardist and drummer Jean-Pierre Schenk. They have released an album titled "After All These Years" which is distributed by the magnificent label Galileo Records. METAMORPHOSIS suits the Galileo label perfect, as the music is reminiscent to many of the bands on the label such as FORGOTTEN SUNS and METAPHOR. You can also hear influences from ELOY, GENESIS, MARILLION and PINK FLOYD. The music is beautiful and there's no doubt that Jean-Pierre is a talented guy. My only criticism would be that the music is a little bit too laid-back too often. When there's a musical passage that you suppose should be bombastic or heavier than the rest of the composition, it just doesn't reach that point. There's really no edge in the music except for a few tracks, but on the other hand this might be intentional. However it's a really promising release although it doesn't reach the same high standard as the other Galileo bands. METAMORPHOSIS' second CD should be released in the autumn 2003.
