A truly surprising album, this one by the Italians No Man Eyes. We are talking about their third full length in their career and we are certainly talking about a mature album in many respects. The thick and powerful production gives the harsh riffing of the guitars an extra edge and we can certainly speak of a good combination of progressive and thrash metal.
This can also be seen in the truly top-notch drumming, which is both technical and imaginative, underlining an album that certainly cannot bore, thanks to a continuity of solutions that reveal themselves as you proceed with listening to the album.
The voice is particular, it does not follow the classic styles of the genre nor those traced by progressive metal vocalists such as Geoff Tate or James LaBrie. Everything here seems to support a certain immediacy, albeit in terms of an album with certainly prog bases. There is therefore room for acrobatic riffs, technical guitar solos, very varied drum tempos and powerful voices.
Ultimately a sci-fi lyrical concept that certainly adds value to an already very interesting album. Don’t miss this Italian gem of power-progressive-thrash metal. If you love these genres, you’re on the safe side.
