Prog Reviewer
3 stars Forgotten Tales is a canadian band who plays melodic power metal with prog metal leanings, less prog on first album - The promis from 2001, and more prog on their second one. Now this album brings nothing new in the genre , but is well composed, well performed and above all is not boring at all. The musicianship is good delivering some intristing guitar chops over a powerfull voice of Sonia Pineault. So all in all a good album, a good debut, but something still is not moveing for them, that something is in my opinion they don't have a major label under their wings, as a independed band is hard to promote properly your stuff and made some noise in this prog metal jungle, this thing still happening with their second album. Now this been said , the best pieces are: Far away - a midtempo piece where we can see how great voice has this Sonia, very powerfull in style of Lana Lane or Sabine Edelbacher from Edenbridge and the title track The promise, the rest are ok. So a good album with midtempo pieces, fast ones with nervous guitar riifs, and a pleasent voice among them. 3 star for this debut, their second one will be much better and variated.
