Project Arcadia – A Time of Changes Review

Overall, I think A Time of Changes is a solid album, and I certainly will be looking looking forward to future releases from Project Arcadia. I think they have a lot of room for improvement, but there’s certainly enough moments of great melodic heavy metal and power metal here for me to recommend this album to fans of both genres, and obviously it’s a must hear for fans of Urban Breed.

Siren’s Cry – Scattered Horizons Review

So the album is astonishing. Despite of Symphony X influences I like it more than the last works of Symphony X themselves because Siren’s Cry is more interesting, fresh and innovative and has more catchy moments. If you like technical yet melodic Progressive Power Metal with good female voice; you should check this band out.

Aeon Zen – Enigma Review

All in all, regardless of how stale or vital more straight-ahead progressive metal has been in your mind since the 90’s, AEON ZEN has contributed yet another wonderful album that emphasizes the stylistic strengths of the genre whilst having a few things of its own to say. And bar a complete game-changer like Images & Words from DT or other similarly influential albums that came out from the prog. metal big leagues back in the late 80’s, you can’t ask for much more than that.

Tellus Requiem – Invictus (The 11th Hour) Review

For the most part the second half of the album doesn’t bring as many fresh ideas as the first half, and is mostly very mellow, with just the occasional burst of heaviness. The two exceptions are “Sands Of Gold”, which is probably the heaviest, most complicated and definitely the most explosive song on the album, and the title track which starts off slow but quickly picks up momentum and delivers a very epic and fast-paced chorus, with maybe some subtle power metal elements

Lance King – A Moment in Chiros Review

There is way too much to digest just on a few spins on this immense project, I am sure that I missed probably more then half of the meanings of each song and it’s little idiosyncrasies, but hey it’s never easy to digest progressive metal let alone something tackling the secrets of the universe okay, so cut me some slack.
