Progressive Rock, Neo-Prog

Short-lived neo-progressive rock band,formed in Germany in 1989. Influenced by the likes of MARILLION and SAGA, they presented themselves to the public with ''… a poet's soliloquy'' in 1994. Their interesting combination of the somewhat heavy electric guitars with the synthesizers flights and some good piano parts sounds quite tasteful and enjoyable. Vocalist Dick Bovensiepen has a singing-style resembling to a more aggresive FISH or Peter Nichols of IQ (yes, the English-sung vocals have the familiar German accent), while the album contains also some great hard rockin' tracks with good solos, nice grooves and a tight, almost-metal heavy rhythm section. This is not an exceptional work, however fans of keyboard-driven neo prog with balanced speeds and carefully-arranged compositions will like this a lot. A very decent starting point for DARIUS. ~ Review by apps79
