NO MAN EYES “Cosmogony”
I found this piece of Italian progressive metal very interesting as it has eclectic roots in diverse music genres. And it was very well-conceived, with high octane guitar riffs, complex structures and high pitched vocals.
In other words, this second album of the band has everything to become a good example of that flag. Based in Ligury Italy, these guys composed a really good album, taking the best of progressive metal elements, thrash metal, and heavy metal. Everything is surrounded by superlative musical arrangements, and distinctive sections. Of course this is a very dynamic album, as you will find fast songs and powerful structures. I admit this CD called my attention since the beginning although the band seems to be not interested in add spectacular tempo changes or new elements to the songs. I liked because it’s a band that knows about melody, and good taste in fine compositions. Also, vocalist Fabio Carmotti seems to be influenced by big names of heavy metal, like Dickinson, Tate, Gillan, J. L. Turner. I really respect this band as everything has metallic spirit and a good sense of classic heavy metal, but they know how to handle complex sections and instrumental arrangements. For those lovers of Italian power metal and progressive metal genre, this will be a quite interesting option. – Victor Varas
