3 stars Forgotten Suns are from Portugal and they offer a type of prog metal that in many places is melted with neo prog elements, sounding in the end like a metalized neo prog, very much if you combine Dream Theater with Arena for example you will got this band. Formed around mid 90s, they release so far only 4 albums, their second offer from 2004 named Snooze is considered their peak. THis is a conceptual double album clocking around 80 min and is to me a pleasent listen from start to finish. Nice vocal lines, quite strong keyboards and guitars, long elaborated passages, all is here for a great album, the originality lacks big time, but is not a big problem for me. They manage to combine mellow sections with more up tempo in pleasent and enjoyble manner, many parts remind me of DT around the best period the '90s. Even is a long ride, all pieces are more then ok, each one flows very nice one to other and the listner is conected to the music offered. Forte tracks let's say the opening Dreaming of reality, followed by Senses, Dream kille or Struggle. All in all a nice little album, quite unknown but I think worth investigated, one of the better bands from Portugal in last decades. For sure 3 stars rounded to 3.5, nice art work and all package.
