Section A is a progressive metal band from Denmark formed around multi instrumentalist Torben Enevoldsen. He gathered here on first album, aswell on second a bunch of great musicians , well known in this field. Released at Lion Music in 2003 the first album named The seventh sign is a typical album for this scene. Nothing over the top or excellent , but good with pleasent moments. The musicians involved here are as I said well known in prog metal like, Derek Sherinian and Gunter Werno on key from Vanden Plas and Kamelot, Andreas Lill on drums aswell from Vanden Plas, Andy Engberg behind the microphone from Book of Reflections and Lion's Share and of course the main man of the band Torben Enevoldsen. The music is good, without shineing, only in places, the excellent keys of Sherinian and Werno and the brilliant voice of Egberg make this album worth investigated. While the pieces are well developed, elaborated in manner of composing, with nice moments, Section A doesn't offer something truly solid in this field. For many this is usual prog metal album, with little acomplished moments, in a way I'm agree, they bring nothing new in this genre, but at least they sound good. The plus goes to the voice of Egberg, excellent vocalist, realy fits perfect here, and the keys, the rest are good, the guitar is ok , nothing realy impressive but good all the way. So, to me this first attempt to make some noise in prog metal succeded for Section A, memorable tracks are , the title track, with furious keys provided by Sherinian and great guitar chops, Pray For Rain and Tomorrow, the rest are ok. Definetly a good release in my book, who desearve 3 stars more like, 3.5. Worth some spinings if you are intrested in this genre but don't expect something realy impressive.
