After all, this album holds so many great melodic songs of which "Medalion" is just one Album) even if the final part is rocking alrightthat you can't consider this work as close to prog metal.
And even if I know that lots of progheads are not very keen on the neo sub- genre, I strongly advise them to do an effort and listen to this great band. Original and mighty music but combined with passion and feeling. Yes, you'll get all of this with "Abraxas" even if "Iris" sounds not so good. Somewhat too synthetic to my taste. But the closing instrumental number is brilliant again. Melancholic guitar break and whispering vocals Such a magnificent way to close this excellent work.
Four stars for Introduction full of voices, but since the band is Polish, all the vocals are so different and also extremely interesting. What follows is an instrumental and discharged with a certain weight. The band as you would expect draws on the Neo-Prog, the one that always has cold keyboards and sounds that seems comes out directly from 80's, but here the thing is not so exaggerated.
The voice of Adam Lassa is very good, sometimes melodic sometimes torn, when accompanied by weight of the band. Czekam Marcin Blaszczyk opens the track with an organ, one of those that was bequeathed by Peter Banks Genesisschool of 9 out of 10 Neo Progressive bands. Followed by the keyboards a constant 'beep' as one of those hospital machines that measure the heartbeat of the person until he check only feature. And ends with a short speech.
Jezebel The drums of Mikolaj Matyska takes shape and contour in the introduction of the 3rd track, closely followed by the grave bass of Rafal Ratajczak showing sometimes some 'slap' bass lines. Vocals are quite beautiful, the Polish language not sure if it's some dialect as strange as it may sound, makes things even more beautiful to me.
After the half's paraded a fretless bass solo that if I am not mistaken is the guest Krzysztof? Spowiedz The melody of the guitar riff is constant and the drums here is cool, simple and functional.
The female vocals are heard for the first time on this album at this moment, as if they had a story to tell but I'm Purification - Abraxas (9) - 99 (CD entirely sure if they do. Beautiful guitar riffs. The guitars full of harmonics and somehow very heavy. By the half of the song the band comes in in a melodious and beautiful melody full of details of keyboards and synthesizers. Is like as if they were workers at some factory, or claiming something.
They sound a little bit like Dream Theater here. Noel After some light sounds the song is played in a broken time signature, but with melody.
After a series of poems follows a heavier part, but short-lived. Then the drums accelerates Album) the sound itself does not. Vocalizations and a nice keyboard in the end. Medalion A discreet percussion opens the track, followed by beautiful keyboard arpeggios, bass always deep, guitars up here and Purification - Abraxas (9) - 99 (CD, and the beautiful vocals. The song also has a lot of lines between his verses and instrumentals.
And a beautiful guitar solo, melody and virtuosity.
