4 stars Mindwarp Chamber is a prog metal band from USA. They release a single album 'till now last year named Delusional reality. I bought the CD from CDbaby 2 month ago, knowing that I expect something realy strong because I've heared some samples and read some very good reviews here and there. I was pleasently surprised about this album, for sure one of the best in last years in prog metal, at least for me. Jaw dropping vocals, excellent musicianship, catchy tunes, solid song writing, what else did I want more. The album is very well balanced, not a piece is in front and not a piece is weak, each one is solid as rock, and captured my attention for little more that an hour. What I like most is that the album is so consistent that easy can fight with the best in prog metal, easy. The music is complex with awesome arrangemets specially the keyboard passages are killer, not to mention thet the voice of Scott Huffman is the cherry on the cake here ranging from mellow moments to the higher notes reached like famous Rob Halford. The rest of the musicians shines at each instrument they play, realy impressive debut album by this american band. Great slow passages that interlude extremly well with the more rougher ones. Every single piece is a winner for sure, the band tried and succeded to compose a real solid prog metal album, that shows that even younger bands can creat something of great quality. Music sometimes reminds me of Dream Theater or Symphony X (only on vocal parts sometimes) but not a copy or even in places with another americ legend band Jag Panzer (this time from heavy metal zone). The best pieces are all, not a weak moment here, each one brings a fresh air in prog metal with great and inteligent arrangemets. What to say more then: well done guys, I congratulated you for this album, if the next albums sounds at least like this one than your path in prog metal is opened for big things. 4.5 stars easy, one of the best prog metal album in last years. Recommended.
