3 stars One of the lesser known prog metal acts from the 90s is for sure the americans from Leviathan. Even they released 3 albums in mid to late 90s they disbanded in early 00s and then reform to release two more albums few years back. Well, the best offerings are the first 3 albums, with a plus on their second offer from 1996 named Riddles, questions, poetry and outrage I don't know why this band didn't recive more reviews or ratings across the years, this album in particulary offering some great prog metal totaly a typical for prog scene, that is meaning they don't sound at all like DT for instance or Shadow Gallery. Is a perfect example of a band trying to push against the flow of that period. The music is not overly complex but there are some very nice instrumental sections. A combination of Fates Warning/Queensryce and similar with bands such as Clockwork also from USA and few more. Pieces like opening Census Of Stars or Madness Endeavor showing exactly the potential of this band, excellent prog metal from clean voices to inspired instrumental parts, this was the prog metal from the 90s, a well written and performed style. To me a truly great album that desearves a far more recognition. 3 solid stars rounded to 3.5 for sure.
