4.0 out of 5 stars ...Portugese prog-metallers make bid for promotion..., 15 Mar. 2009
By 
This review is from: Innergy (Audio CD)
Oh, hang on now. This is really, really good. Album number three from Portugese proggers, Forgotten Suns, and having given the predecessors "Fiction Edge" and "Snooze" a spin, I can safely say that they have really stepped-up their game here.

Whereas their early material was largely in thrall to their influences - Marillion and Rush - in particular, they've progressed and matured into a very adept, borderline prog-metal band. Part of this toughening up process has involved the arrival of a new vocalist, Nio Nunes, and he does a good job, coping well with some tricky arrangements.

The stars of the show, though, remain guitarist Ricardo Falcao and keyboard man Miguel Valadares, the former churning out some mighty riffs, the latter sprinkling tunes with colour, and providing some fabulous solos that actually outshine the guitar solos.

They're now entrenched in the Dream Theater / Pain Of Salvation camp, and if fans of either get to hear songs like 'Racing The Hours' and 'Doppelganger', then Forgotten Suns could find themselves propelled to the top of the league.

Forgotten Suns are the best Prog Metal band from Portugal.
Guitar player Ricardo Falcão is fantastic, is following more and more Petrucci style, some years ago Steve Rothery style was still there and I've also liked it very much. This album is closer to Metal then to Prog, considering this is very good metal album but too noisy for prog album.
