Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is a three-piece band that got together after an ad that ELECTRUM's guitarist posted to the National Midnight Star - the RUSH on-line digest/mailing list, looking for other musicians. You can hear the RUSH influences in ELECTRUM's music that is Instrumental Progressive Rock. Their music combine a myriad of influences and genres such as Classical Music, Jazz, Progressive Rock, Jazz-Fusion, Prog Metal, Neo Progressive Music, Pop, Folk and Heavy Metal. Here you can find complex odd-time signatures and polyrhythms. The music is very strictly arranged and has a very composed feeling, because the lead and solo sections is kept to a minimum. The bassist Gino Foti has been playing bass for 6 years, he's entirely self taught, but it sounds like he's been playing for whole his life. I am astounded by the group's musical skills. Every track on the album is totally amazing. My personal favourites are "Reverie" and "Portal to Arcanum". This is a must-buy for everyone who likes really Progressive Music. Beside PÄR LINDH PROJECT's CD "Mundus Incompertus" the best album so far in 1998.
