4 stars Excellent and yet unnoticed release

DGM is one of the prog metal bands that for some reasons never gained much succes over the years like other bands from this genre. While their music is quite good towards great on some albums, DGM is an underrated band in my opinion. This is their second studio release from 1999 named Wings of time. Great, simply excellent album full of catchy arrangements and superb vocal passages sung by their first vocalist Luciano Regoli. I don't realy know why he was replaced after this album with Tita Tani, because here he delivers one of the best vocal lines I ever heared on a prog metal album. He's voice is perfect for this kind of aproach, a perfect balance between prog metal with some power metal arrangements. As I said the music has some superb guitars and keys passages, just listen to Mirrors Of The Night and Guiding Light , the best from here. The rest are also good, some sax interluded with the rest on Deep Inside and Drop of shadow and gives a special atmosphere overall. Also female singer Cristina Cioni helped the bad on Deep inside, her warm voice fits perfect in the tune. The song structures are complex and has an up tempo almost all the time. DGM uses a powerful double bass throughout plus a strong use of keyboards, not to mention the guitar who is quite impressive. In the end a 4 star album. Try this band because they are among the best in prog metal, even if they are in the second league for many listners, and maybe not so well known by metal heads, to me is an excellent album that needs a wider recognition. Similar bands Elegy, Ivory Tower, Eldritch. 4 stars without hesitation. I'm the second reviewer of this release, how strange, is DGM so unknown to wider public???
