In Continuum - Acceleration Theory (2019)
The debut album from this US band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of keyboards, bass, guitars, drums and vocals.
The band had help from numerous other musicians who provided drums, male and female vocals, viola, violin, cello, synths and guitars.
Among the members of the band can we find Dave Kerzner and Marco Minnemann. Nick N'Virgillo helps as an extra drummer.
This has the sound of a some sort of a big project..... and the first listening session confirms that. It is confirmed by the other listening sessions too.
Take US neo-prog, add some prog metal and symphonic prog. That is the essence here.
I understand this is some sort of a concept album.
That explains the wide variety of music on this one hour long album.
From musicals to progressive metal. From electronica to old style moog sound.
This album got it all.
And that is not for the positive. The album is a bit short on quality as there is not many really good songs and pieces of music here.
This is a decent to good album but nothing more than that, I am afraid.
