Prog Reviewer
3 stars From France is coming this little known neo prog band named Gambit formed around 2002 and releasing so far two albums. Abyssal is the second offer from 2013 and is a fine yet far from original neo prog release. Gambit has a theatrical aproach to their music, in many parts is sounding like a neo prog Ange with breafly apearing some more metalized sections. Not bad at all, some lenghy tunes here 3 are over 10 min and 2 around 8 min, so enoygh room for instrumental passages who are done right with keyboards/guitars sophisticated duels and some good job on drums example are La valeur des choses and La course contre le temps the best pieces of the album . The voice of Patrick Follaco who sung in french is ok, nothing really special but alright most of the time. All in all a good one for sure, no stand out moments, but all pieces are good. For fans of Splinter, Knight Area, Arena, etc. 3 stars, maybe 3.5 in places, very nice gate fold cover.
