3 stars Prymary is a progressive metal band from USA with 3 albums to date, this one is their second one named The tragedy of innocence from 2006. It took me long then usual to listen to fully appreciated this album and specialy this concept. I'm not gonna talk about the concept here, because , first: sinkadotentree said everything must to known about this concept and second I don't realy like what is going on lyricaly, not because is bad , but because is a truly said story that will make anyone's hair stand up after study the lyrics, it's dark, sad, emotional to the limits. I'm gona tell my opinion about the music of this album only. The music to me is similar to Pain of Salvation, but is 10 times better then anything POS released after Remedy lane. Musicaly speaking the album is dense, full of emotions, very well written, rougher in places, but aswell mellower to calm down the atmosphere. Every musician shines here, specialy i like a lot the drumer Chris Quirante, excellent work here , he is the main composer and the main man who felt the tragedy along with his wife of this story. In other words he is also a member of Redemption on latest album of theirs and aswell plays with Roswell Six. The vocal parts of Mike Di Sarro again remind me of POS, not a copy for sure, he has a perfect voice for this kind of prog metal., the rest of the musicians also are strong. Musicianship is top notch, from blistering key passages combined with excellent guitar chops to superb and very solid drum interplays. I will not extract a piece as favourite, because only as a whole will be fully apreciated this concept. Definetly this album is a grower, third and fourth time I heard this record aI begone to understand the core. So, finaly a worthy album for sure, a good one all the way, but is not my kind of prog metal I want to listen constantly, POS is not one of my fav bands so Prymary will never be aswell, because of this aproach to prog metal, thier similarities, unique but not realy for my taste.3 stars for sure, a good towards great, some parts are truly stunning.
