Now this is quite a surprise, because from out of nowhere we receive a terrific mini-CD from a new French band called THE MARS CHRONICLES. Basically everything sounds picture perfect here and the only pity is that 5 songs are included, because after hearing them you definitely want to hear much more. The band is from the beautiful south of France and they make their debut with this same titled album. The included music is superb Progressive Metal in the style of THRESHOLD, SUNCAGED, VANDENPLAS, SEVENTH WONDER, PAGAN’S MIND… and actually they even reach the same high quality quite a few times on this album. Instrumental it is your typical Progmetal affair, with all the big riffs, flashy guitarsolo’s and a wide diversity in the bass/drumsection, while vocally the band’s guitarist DEVY DIADEMA has a fantastic voice, without any accent. Every song is a highlight here and it would not surprise me if we are looking here at the next big band in the Progressive Metalscene!
