4 stars Amaseffer is an excellent prog metal band from Israel with so far one album rleased in 2008 at SPV named Slave for life. Man I was totaly blown away by this album, specialy by the vocal parts, I mean Mats Leven is a killer vocalist, I truly love his tone of voice, fits perfectly in this kind of music. The music as you might guess is prog metal with arabic elements, melted very well in the music, gives to the listner a solid release full of mesmerazing moments. The narrations, the vocal parts, the instrumental passages are top notch, I guess I never heared, in prog metal at least ,such tight combination between metam and arabic arrngemnts and in same tame so succesfully puted together like on this album. Some excellent and killer pieces are to me: title track, awesome , top notch track, Leven's voice is superb, deep and very powerfull, Birth Of Deliverance another super prog metal piece melodic and in same time complex and Burning Bush, the rhythmic section here has no equal realy, ther guitar is not of this earth here, the rest of the pieces are ok some of them great but not realy outstanding, only good. Even the album is great overall , something I trace as unenjoyble, at least from my side, the album is to much time, in fact all the time mid tempo, here are not faster instrumental moments or bursting keybords or guitars, everything is well made, paiced, but to little monotounous in same parts and only because the album is too slow but never the less good, that for sure. I will give 3.5 rounded to 4 only because those 3 pieces that are simply killer prog metal tunes. Nice album, well performed well played. Similar at some point with, if I make abstraction of the arabic influences with Pagan's Mind, Beyound Twilight. Looking forward for their next release probably will be out this year 2011 named When lions leave their den.
