Inside The Sound picture
Inside The Sound biography
This is the project of guitarist and composer Max VELYCHKO (also appeared in KARFAGEN, SUNCHILD, MODERN ROCK ENSEMBLE) They have released 2 albums and the latest "Wizard' s Eyes" contain tracks that were composed through the years, and now, after 6 years of silence, it's finally release. It sounds a more like prog-melodic- instrumental with a wide range of deep guitar works and keyboards palettes based on groovy and powerfull rhythm section. If you're a fan of LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT, JOE SATRIANI, STEVE VAI, etc, you'll definitely like this record.
Each of 11 tracks of this album has its own story and mood - from power and energy of "Wizard's Eyes" and " Dreaming Deja Vue", through a deep and emotional "Horizon", "Fantasia" and a bit of vedic and philosophic "Haribol" - to absolutely "flying" "To The Sky" and intimate-feeling "The Cold Spring". We invite you to take part in our musical journey inside the sound.

4 stars As this artist is categorized here under progressive metal - and I'm generally very little interested in metal genres -, I'm surprised to enjoy the album as much as I do. Quite likely this will be among my favourite instrumental rock albums of this year. Guitarist Max Velychko has been involved in several bands, but to me his playing was familiar only from the last year's album of MODERN- ROCK ENSEMBLE. The core of Inside The Sound are Velychko (guitars, keyboards, composer) and bassist Dmitri Trifonov (bass, co- composer on two tracks). Drums are shared by two guys, and some tracks feature guests.

This instrumental music full of power. Of course there's the guitar-heavy metal style present on most tracks, but the metal ingredient leaves plenty of room for other nuances too. The spacey keys work excellently together with the roaring guitars that are sonically not restricted to the angry metal sound. Velychko is one hell of a guitarist! My musical associations happen to be Finnish artists: Time Traveller and Low Budget Orchestra are one-man bands centred on heroic guitarism, and Inside The Sound easily beats them both. There's a sense of space rock, comparable to MOONWAGON. And what's best, the music has the vitality of jazz-rock and fusion. And the compositions are pretty progressive too. So, this album can sincerely be recommended to listeners of the mentioned genres.

Every third given rating here is five stars, and I sure sympathize with that. I'm undecided between 4 and 5 stars myself. The production is superb, as well as the playing. There are no weak tracks. Perhaps in the end the high-tempo energy gets a bit too overwhelming on the course of the 53-minute album. But remember, this comment comes from a listener favouring emotional aspect over technical bravado and power in music. [A little detail in the running order feels slightly questionable: with 'Intro' and 'Outro' the whole would have formed a coherent arch, if the relatively calm 'The Cold Spring' would have come somewhere earlier instead of being a "bonus track".]

5 stars Familiar with the game of guitarist Max Velichko on the projects Sunchild & Carthage. When he found out that he had his own instrumental project, he was very happy and interested. After a short search I found two albums, I was really glad to it. After listening to the first album, I immediately switched to the second one, which has the name "wizard's eyes". The album is uniquely more mature than the first, in music the influences of such styles are heard; jazz, progressive rock and metal, fusion, in places you can hear something from Vedic culture. You can also hear a lot of experiments in music, there are electronic sounds, and the lack of a keyboard player in the group (in the first album he was) is not noticeable, since Max independently played keyboards, skillfully and gracefully. Very pleased with the variety of musical moods, here there is also expression and lyrics and atmosphere and flight, indeed, everyone thinks they will find something of their own, I found. This album is for me the opening this year, now I look forward to continue!

Review by Progunklebear

5 stars This album Inside The Sound discovered by accident, and to my surprise, after listening to several songs, I was delighted. From the first track, I was carried away on an exciting secret journey, in which I wanted to be again and again. Rhythms, sizes, sounds, everything attracted to itself its mystery and secrets. What is Dejavu is not completely known, but it's safe to say that the second track from the Wizard's Eyes album accurately conveys this unexplored feeling. Fantasia - you can close your eyes and everyone can see their own, individual fantasies, it's definitely nice. Friends, this is an unusual composition, in which there is a solo on an electric violin and a synthesizer, it was impossible to catch on to something, the music constantly entails. Empire V a very sharp, you can say a daring track, but nevertheless very melodic and perceptive. Haribol... here you can be a little pondered, everything came together, music, Vedic singing, sitar sounds, chic music. The sea, the sunset of the sun, the cry of seagulls, the warm and gentle water, the sound of the surf, all this from the composition Horizon. The eyes of the magician, this is truly a masterpiece of Progressive Metal, instrumental of course) Here you can see magical changes of sizes, heavy guitar riffs, breathtaking solos, unexpected finale. The album cover is very suitable for this topic. In the sky, do not want to comment, music speaks for itself, flight of thoughts, flight of fantasy, higher and higher and only up! I can say with confidence that this album is very worthy, along with such outstanding guitarists as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Marty Friedman. My score is five stars. I recommend everyone to audition, and a group of luck and prosperity!

Review by KapiToshka

5 stars I'll put 5 stars to this record, 'cause "Wizard's Eyes" by Inside The Sound is one of the best instrumental albums I've ever listened to. It is more progy than their previous album "timeZ". It also has better production. I like all tracks in it, my personal favourites are "Dreaming Deja Vue", "Empire V" 'cause of their incredible rhythm parts and "Horizon", "To The Sky" 'cause of their awesome & tasty guitar melodies. This record has also smth special for ya: sitar, weddic vocal work, guest keyboard solo from Anton Kalugin (Sunchild, Karfagen, etc.). So if u are a fan of instrumental guitarists like John Petrucci or Steve Vai sure this album is 4 u. I wish all the best to these guys and waitin' for the 3rd one :)

Review by Igor Cherezov

4 stars Very interesting album. Since the release of the first album of 'Inside the Sound' 'Time Z' almost 10 years has past. Through this period Max Velichko participated in albums of Karfagen, Sunchild and Modern-Rock Ensemble. He has grown up significantly as a composer and guitar player. Once during his trip to Kyiv Steve Vai recognized Max as a promising and interesting guitar player and signed Max's guitar. It was a good sign from one of the Max's heroes. Year later Max became the Best Ukrainian guitar player. The new album 'Wizard's Eyes' shows the new horizons of the band's destination. The loss of a keyboard player is not heard on that album, since Max took over the keyboard duties as well, and made it quite good. There are many good pieces in the album. I presume that every track is great. Really great! Maybe it is not yet a masterpiece, but I am looking forward and am absolutely sure that Max and his band will surprise us in the near future. So I wish 'Inside the Sound' "Full Ahead" with the same speed, intensity and creativeness!

Review by kirock

4 stars I've liked Max's guitar at first in Karfagen and Sunchild projects and later on visited a number of live concerts of 'Inside the Sound' and became their big fan. The second album of Inside the Sound 'Wizard's Eyes' opens more skills of the main force behind the band's name - Max Velichko. Music of the band becomes more interesting and walks in some new jazz, fusion, ethnic and sympho-rock areas, however hard and heavy is still being the main accent. In this album Max is not only strong guitar player but is showing interesting keyboard parties after the band's keyboard player has left 3 years ago. However 10 years ago with his friend, co-composer and bass player Dmitry Trifonof they started the band as a duo with Max taking care about guitar and keyboards. 'Wizard's Eyes' for sure is the next step of the band development now as a power trio. The new drummer Alexandr fits nicely the band going ahead to more complicated rhythms and time signatures. Dmitry's bass becomes more mature and provides not only rhythm section but as well more melodic support. Max palette includes heavy guitar riffs, aggressive explosions and sometimes unexpectedly fragile and nice solos. Very good album, compared to the previous one 'Time Z' this one is much better recorded and produced. To my taste the only thing that is missing - a few songs with rock vocal, however concept of the band is an instrumental music. I would like to give them 4.5, but have to keep to 4 stars and am sure that they will soon reach the next step in their development.

4 stars This is the project of Max Velychko guitarist and keyboardist who has played with such bands as Sunchild and Karfagen. The music is melodic instrumental prog metal with jazz tones. While the music is centered around the guitars of Max, there are some nice keyboards lines that give a deeper sound to the music. You can listen to those spacey keyboards in the song "Fantasia". We also can enjoy some violin sections in the song "Friends". There is some exotic guitar music in the next song "Haribol" where Max delivers some of his guitars solos. So, the music is never too heavy and show the symphonic style of the band mentioned before creating a nice balance in the overall sound of the album.
Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition.
