Review:

With several critically acclaimed albums already, Italy-based ADIMIRON has released their newest album with eight hard-hitting tracks. They tout themselves as a prog band and have been together since 1999.

So, I put this CD on and based on the hype, I had thought that I was going to listen to a prog album, possibly with some long songs, weird sounds and trippy concepts… Instead I got a metal album with close to Cookie Monster vocals and nothing that really comes close to prog. The band is great, showing lots of talent with powerful playing, but the vocals… the vocals. I really can’t get into the shouted, growled and angry all the time vocals and it really was hard to get through the album for me. The only song that I really enjoyed was “The Coldwalker” because it was a bit more subdued and had smooth singing.

The production was spotless and the band is amazing, but I can’t get into this at all. If you like this kind of music, I’m sure it will be a hit for you, alas, it was a miss for me.
