3 stars Sonic Debris - one of the unknown prog metal acts from Norway with almost 2 decades career so far has 2 albums in their pockets so far, but the debut is the most intresting one from the two. Velvet thorns is the name of their first album, released in 2000. Well, what we have here is pretty good, this is the type of prog metal that I'm not so atached, but I like it untill some point. Imagine a combination of Rush with Faith No More and add prog metal chops on it the result is Sonic Debris. The vocalist remind me in many places with Bono from U2 but in combination with the instrumental passages he is quite ok. Short pieces, almost all are under 5 min time, but each tune is well constructed and played. Half complicate type of prog metal, with most of the time back ground keyboards as suport, the guitar has an important role here. All in all a decent debut in prog metal scene, nothing groundbreaking, but pleasent most of the time.
