3 stars An epic metal guitar trip full of speed, musicianship and guts.

Any prog metal follower will agree on that. GLASS MIND's, 2011, "Haunting Regrets" works on all the rightful ways to be featured in this PA's metal division. The style's protocols are all well covered, metal ballads included, swirling hyper fast guitar soloings, furious vocals, as also "in love" lyrics, deep bottom melodic basses and an spectacular drumming by Edgar Garduņo.

Now, the ugly truth. Music composition wise this band seems as in some place between becoming one hell of a performing one and finding their own personal musical idiom or to put it simply life after music school diplomas, teachings and follower's adulations (or playing by the book).

Fast as hell, as guitar players can play, your music compositions will be what listeners will remember at the end of the day, so you better deliver some super charged memorable riffs, if not the guy that comes next will steal your thunder.

These guys' masterful performances certainly put them in an upper level performance category, yet "best is the enemy of the good", and in this prog metal world if something is not really missing is ultra fast musicians, what is really needed is someone to really push it beyond its comfortable composition's protocols up to now.

Anyway and by the way, ***3 PA stars, with great expectations for a future and far more daring release.
