4 stars IRIDIUM is the great return of one the most talented prog metal Italian bands EMPTY TREMOR!!!It was a long wait for all the fans of this wonderful band,but the too long wait worth plenty!!!The most important news about this superbe album is the return of the initial vocalist GIOVANNI DE LUIGI!Man...and what a sensational voice has this guy!He sings like an angel..sometimes in a heavenly high register and other times in angry tones -each time efficient and inspired-a fabulous voice...a true sensation!Honestly...after the first 2 albums..I didn't realise he's so fantastic!In fact...he is much more mature now and his techical vocal range is stunning!The production is fabulous,each instrument sounds perfect and the whole band has a great cohesion under all aspects!Mature and inspired compositions and fantastic musicianship!!!I I had some emotions thinking that the departure of DANIELE LIVERANI will be a major handicap for EMPTY TREMOR ,but-fortunatelly-I was wrong!The new keyboard player is perfect and all the album sounds so fresh and catchy!The new members in the band are perfectly integrated and the whole band has a scarry technical level,but the melody and composition seems to be the major target,goal,of the band!WARM EMBRACE-the highlight of the album- is one of the most sensitive and touching composition of the band,where Giovanni really shines in a very impressive way!The guitar work is wonderful-technique and melodic in the same time.DARIO CICCIONI from TWINSPIRITS,GENIUS,KHYMERA is long time 'partner in crime" for DANIELE LIVERANI-he is pushing here some impressibe drumming wizardries.Overall a very,very inspired come back album-undoubtedly a highlight in prog metal world for 2010,and the deffinitive prove that EMPTY TREMOR has a huge potential and imense talent and is a sure value in this style-a refference!4.75 stars if I can say-almost perfect!COMPLIMENTI EMPTY TREMOR!
