Prog Reviewer
4 stars Cruz D Malta is a young and talentated progressive metal band from Mexico who recently release theiur first opus selftitled. Well I was pleasent surprised what I've heared here, instrumental progressive metal with great musicianship, good passgaes and definetly a winner to my ears. The album is long over 75 min , maybe little to long, but is not a problem after all, because each piece is well constructed, with great interludes between musicians, the album is varied, from mellow passages to more uptempo, Cruz D Malta always done a good job. Besides couple of pieces who are more mellow but very good like Renancer, the rest of the tracks are a cascades of riffs and solos, the guitar player being a very good one for sure, the examples are the longest piece of the album Instinto Animal and to me the best , very well performed with some great arrangements, progressive metal like shoud sound this style. So, overall a great debute that will please most of the progressivemetal fans, those who are more into Dream Theater (Train of thought era). To me is quite similar with brazilian progressive metal band named Di Lallo & Band who released couple of years before Dream Interpretation. I will give 3.5 rounded to 4 this time, a quite great dubute for this talentated band.
