Review by Greger
4 stars Together with RHAPSODY, STRAMONIO is one of the best Prog Metal bands I've heard from Italy. Probably one of the best overall too! The six musicians are playing complex and highly technical progressive metal with lots of breaks and lengthy instrumental passages. Although the technical skills they have managed to create good melodies, strong hooks and memorable compositions.

The music is reminiscent to DREAM THEATER, EMPTY TREMOR, ICE AGE, RUSH and YES, and there are even some classical and jazz influences. But most of all they seem to be inspired by DREAM THEATER. Even the vocalist Frederico De Vescovi has a strong voice that is sometimes reminiscent to James LABRIE (DREAM THEATER) and André Matos (ANGRA).

Everything is very professional done: the production and the beautiful artwork painted by Luis Royo. There's actually nothing to complain about. But IF I should try to find something, it would be that they should try to develop their own style on their future albums.

This album is interesting from the first note to the last, and it's highly recommended to all fans of DREAM THEATER.
