4 stars Polimetro is a very unknown prog metal band from Chile. They release a single album in 2000 named Metropolis. From the begging of the album 'till last note I can trace influences from where?? Dream Thater of course, even the title of the album is an DT clone (DT release a year prior Metropolis part II), but, there is a but, the album is very solid prog metal effort even is influenced by americans in many parts. Very well played album full of great interplays between musicians, stunning and fast key passages made by César Anguita combined very well with the guitar chops and great voice of Ricardo Susarte. I like a lot this kind of prog metal, up tempo with nice and complicated changes between guitar riffs and key passages melted in great unison with the drumers elements. Every pieces stands as good in my ears, not a weak moment here, even the slow pieces are ok , where the voice of Ricardo Susarte shines all the way. To me is not just another prog metal album and band from the thousands that emerged in this decade, is a great prog metal band that for some reasons never made it in prog circles. Laberintos, Fabulas and Sola are excellent examples how great this bands was in prog metal scene from CHile and from South America aswell. So, I give to Metropolis 3.5 stars rounded up to 4, excellent work by this unknown prog metal band from Chile.
