The most memorable songs are highlights "Scent of Snow" and "Strange Kind of Energy" though, the latter a more traditional melodic metal tune with a pop-based chorus, and Sorrow Never Dies - Pathosray - Pathosray latter a dynamically composed tune that builds to a gripping chorus in its relatively compact five and a half minutes.
The album changes pace nicely as well by incorporating Rock Me Slow - Sinitta - Sinitta ! moments, such as the piano-led balladry of "In Salicis Umbra". Like most albums with staying power, the debut allows the listener the pleasure of finding new favorites with additional spins that may have escaped notice the first time around.
What we have here is progressive-metal played in the most traditional style. Longer-than-usual songs, somewhat-irregular structures, extended instrumental sections and solos, prominent use of keyboards, and a heavy influence from the genre's classics.
The music is well-played, with great technical proficiency and with an excellent recording. The music is also very melodic. The band know how to incorporate subtle touches of melody in every song they play. The harmonic work is nothing out of the ordinary but it's competent. The choruses are fairly catchy, if not particularly memorable most of them at least. Talking about the performances, without a question, the stars here are the drummer and mastermind Moni Bidin, the guitarist Luison and the keyboard player, The Nutcracker, Op.
71 (Highlights): The Nutcracker, Op. 71: No. 6, Departure Of The Guests - Night. While I can't say that any of them are among the best the genre has to offer, they are skilled players and they even manage to dazzle at times throughout the album. What's not to like about "Pathosray", Rock Me Slow - Sinitta - Sinitta ! album? Probably what bothers me with this record is that the band's influences Sorrow Never Dies - Pathosray - Pathosray too much through the music.
I would even say that at times the group sounds like an exact replica of another. If there's one band you'll be constantly reminded of while listening to this full-length is the legendary power-progressive outfit from the US.
That song is one of the highlights of the album, as is the great piano intro "Free of Doubt", the memorable "Faded Crystals" and the fast and heavy "Lines to Follow. But we'll save that for next time, when I'm sure this Italian band will finally release the record we know they're capable of. The synths are completely crushed by a punishing soundscape of heavy drums and bass while the piano plays over top.
It mellows out somewhat with soaring vocals. The heaviness returns before more tasteful vocals with piano take over including a soaring guitar solo followed by a synth solo.
The contrast of heavy and light continues. This contrast continues. I would even say that at times the group sounds like Sorrow Never Dies - Pathosray - Pathosray exact replica of another.
