Review by b_olariu
4 stars Second album named Imaginary force from 2004 of this brilliant and yet quite unnoticed keyboard player.

On this second effort Katsionis keeps the instrumental passages as main role and of course again an instrumental album all the way. If first album was a real treat for me and I hope will be for some of you, this second realese is a little more dominated by his guitar sound, but aswell the keys passages are not left aside not for a second. While is again an excellent solo album for a keyboard player, I prefer the previous one. On imaginary force will find again same blistering key arrangements that made him on top of keyboard players from this decade but aswell some very fast and intriguing guitar solos and riffs, also made by him. He is also helped on some pieces by another famous greek guitarist, yet not so known in prog metal scene from today Theodore Ziras. Bob Katsionis's style, very often regarded as progressive metal with neo classical arrangements, is very fluent, very well combined with jazz elements in places, has great technique hard to beat even by well known musicians. All the pieces stands a great, not a weak moment here, showing that this guy mean bussines. On the other hand Bob cites Kevin Moore, Jens Johansson and Keith Emerson as his main keyboard influences and from guitarists Jonh Petrucci among others, this influences are clear on every album he compose, but combined with his ideas the resul is agroundbreaking. Besides this solo albums and participated to other albums as guest or permanent member he has got a diploma in classic organ, based on suites and fugues by J.S. Bach as well as modern jazz pieces for pedal double scale organ, theory, classical harmony and history of music. Another recommended album for prog metal listners , 4 stars
