3 stars A progressive metal band from my country - Romania, a pretty rare thing if you ask me. In Romania , this scene is inexistent, and I can count on one hand the progressive metal bands from here. One of them is Purity formed in 2005 around Bogdan Vera, who handle almost all instruments from here, the programming, arrangements, synths, guitars, lyrics, concept,, minus the voice. First time I hered this album, fiew month ago, I was really surprised, in a good way. If the instrumental passages are ok, even great in places, the voice of Will Shaw is the unintristing moment here, not bad but too unpolished, and without many intristing moments, I prefer the voice of Cosmin Aioniţă from the last piece The flaw of man, he has a better range and fits more in this kind of music then Shaw. Anyway both prestations are ok. Now, what stroke me were the first two piece, instrumental ones, Passageway, brilliant piece, I gues one of the best instrumental pieces I ever heared on a progressive metal album and Prelude to Flowerbloom, again top notch. Close to Dream Theater in manner of interpration, Purity delivers a solid album, with catchy tunes and some marvelous instrumental passages whre guitar interluded excellent with the keys. The programing for the drums are ok, almost unnoticed in places this sound, not a bad thing for sure, but I hope in the future they will have a real drum set instead. So, a good album, towards great, a pleasent surprise for me, and for sure for many who will listen to this album. For now is only available in digital format from their offcial site for download. I hop I will hear more good thing about this Purity because is one of the better bands from my country. Good all the way.3-3.5 for sure. From their myspace I understand they prepare for a new album and aswell some members will be added to this formation of trio already established, the female Ashavari Joshi and Mike Gorham. I hope they will release an album at least as good as this one. Good one for sure.
