3 stars Distorted Harmony is a young band from Israel with their debut released in 2012 named Utopia. Well, what we have here, a type of prog metal that is very appreciated in last years and I mean, fat bass lines, crunchy drums, nice guitar chops, flowing keybords and only an ok voice - did I like it? -well, yes, is not a groundbreaking album to my ears but worth to be investigated if you like prog metal. Taken influences from Symphony X, Dream Theater, Circus Maximus - Distorted harmony manage to come with a pleasent, enjoyble full of complex instrumental sections, definatly the musicins really know to handle the instruments. What bothers me is the voice of Misha Soukhinin, while is ok, in comparation with the music, the vocal lines are almost flat, not particulary strong range this guy has and for that reason drags a little bit the overall sound. If were more anger in the voice but keeping the clean voice of course maybe then I'll give a higher rate. But as I said the instrumental parts are very strong like on Blue or the title track Utopia, really nice musicianship with skillful arrangements, the duels between guitars and keyboards are awesome. All in all 3.5 stars for this debute, a fairly good prog metal album but not among the strongest I've heared lately. The album can be bought in digital format from their bandcamp page for only 1$, imagine that, so don't hesitate to have it worth it for prog metal fans, also the CD format is available from their web page.
