3 stars Miscellane is a forgotten progressive metal band coming from eastern Europe, more precise from Slovakia. Formed in 1993 and releasing their debute almost 10 years after at defunct label Bee & Bee Records named Painted palm from 2002. This album turns to be their swansong aswell, they disbanded a couple of years later , never heared anything about them. I must say that this release was pleasent surprise, nothing realy impressive overall, but plasent most of the time. They god pretty much complex arrangements specialy on the two epics Solstice Story , divided in 2 parts, one has 14 min and part 2 has almost 25 min, here the band realy shines. They remind me in places of Threshold, most their early albums, and here and there Pain of Salvation. Good prog metal album as I said, but nothing original, just well played, nothing more. The voice is ok for this kind of music but not great. So, I will give 3 stars, the best I can give, good but not essential in any sense of the word.
