4 stars Sun Caged is one of the intresting prog metal bands coming from younger generation in last decade. With 3 studio albums so far they become with each release a power in this field reaching the peak with the second album from 2007 Artemisia issued on LionMusic. Well, this Artemisia is one of the best prog metal albums I've heared in long time. Crafted arrangements with virtuosic interplay, all instruements are busy and work at full capacity and above all a very good vocalist Paul Adrian Villareal the new voice of the band. The sonic wall Sun Caged offered here is hard to beat even by well known names in this field. Long album aroud 70 min of pure prog metal of the highest calibre. All pieces stamnds as great, not a weak moment here, the best examples are Bloodline , the instrumental Engelbert the Inchworm or Dialogue, very good keyboards, busy drums, virtuosic guitarist Marcel Coenen from defunct prog metal band Lemur Voice, each musician brings fresh ideas and competent musicianship. As I said the voice of Villareal is top notch, fits perfectly in this kind of music, geat tone, with jawdropping moements. So, overall a very solid album in prog metal field, one of the best I've heared in years btw. with complicated passages and inventive arrangements. Definetly their best album, 4 stars easy. recommended fans of Lemur Voice, Hydrotoxin maybe at some point Threshold might jump on this one because worth it.
