   EUPHROSYNE
Sum Of Choices
2003

rating: 4/5

1. Sum of Choices
2. Broken Friend

Euphrosyne are a young Finnish band playing progressive metal in the vein of the Swedish Pain Of Salvation and Andromeda. The band has already released an EP some years ago and a demo after that and are looking for a record deal with "Sum Of Choices".

The musicianship on the recording is very good throughout, as it should be, since no sloppy-fingered individuals are able to play progressive metal on this level. In many cases with unsigned bands the singer is the weak part of the band but that can't be said about Euphrosyne. The singer Aleksi Parviainen has a slightly operatic voice which he uses very well. Occasionally he hits some high notes but mostly sounds kind of soft (not in a bad way) and very enjoyable to listen to. The production is very good and basically there is nothing missing on that department.

The two songs themselves are rather complex, as is usual for prog metal acts, so it is rather obvious that they demand full attention of the listener. "Sum Of Choices" varies between rather crunchy and heavy straight-forward kind of parts and more mellow and complex parts with a Hammond-like synth sound. The string arrangements on "Broken Friend" add quite a bit of dramatic aspect to the song. Both of the songs are strong enough to maintain the interest and I see no reason why Euphrosyne wouldn't get signed with such excellent compositions.
