3 stars Lo Que Te Quiero Decir is the debut release by Argentinian progressive metal act Post Mortem. Itīs a 28:16 minute long, 5 track EP.

The music on the EP quite obviously draws influences from some of the usual suspects in the progressive metal genre like Fates Warning and Dream Theater. Despite the obvious influences the band have been able to make a pretty good and enjoyable EP. The musicianship is generally excellent and I just have to give a special mention here to bassist Andres Antonelli for his playing on the EP. Rather impressive bass lines from him. The instrumentation includes guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals. The vocals are delivered in the bandīs native language, so I have to admit that I donīt understand one single word. Itīs not always necessary though and this is a case where Iīm not bothered by that fact. The vocals are good but doesnīt stand out as something unique IMO which you can count as a minor complaint but not something that really annoys me. I guess I just find them a bit ordinary for the genre. The production is good but not up there with the best. Itīs allright though. The five songs on the EP are all quality compositions and itīs nice to hear a band that really tries hard to make their songs stand out from each other. That part of the plan certainly turns out a succes but not all ideas are equally exciting or original and overall Post Mortem still need to find their own sound.

To be honest I didnīt expect much when I was given the opportunity to review "Lo Que Te Quiero Decir" having never heard of Post Mortem before but Iīve been pleasantly surprised by the quality and promising nature of the EP. As mentioned above I still think the band need to work on a more original style if they are gonna make it in the already overcrowded progressive metal genre, but they seem to have the will to develop their style further and Iīll be following their next move closely. 2.5 - 3 stars are deserved.
