One of the talented bands in the Spanish scene is Pyramid. This is the 2nd CD of the band around talented guitarist Tony Vallés who the Spanish will remember from bands like Manzano and Los Suaves. After the classical "Epilogue" you get high quality progressive metal in the vein of old Dream Theater but also unmistakenly influenced by bands like Watchtower. Technical but always in favor of the songs - always melodic but heavy as well. It takes you on a musical rollercoaster of interesting songs that keep you on your toes. Pretty uptempo stuff most of the time with flashy solos (guitar as well as keyboards!) and also some quiet moments (like the ballad "Show Me") where outstanding singer Javier Cespedes usually sings a bit lower than on the rest of the songs. And I love that much more! Overall his voice is a bit nasal and high-pitched, reminds me sometimes of John Cyriis (Agent Steel) and sometimes of Andy Kuntz (Vanden Plas) but his voice is not as warm. Leading roles are fullfilled by abovementioned guitarist Tony Vallés and keyboardplayer Xavier Camps. A very special song that stands out is the classical instrumental "The Prodigal Son" with arabic influences. Pretty dary to put an movie soundtrack kind of song on a metal album (althought it's the closing track of the album), but hats off! If you like your metal progressive and with some classical and arabic touches and with a lot of virtuous solos, this is your thing!
