Tree Of Life - Awakening Call (2017)
The debut album from this US/Venezuela band.
The band was a trio with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars and keyboards.
The band and this album was an idea two friends from Venezuela got before they relocated to Miami, Florida and enlisted a member of Neal Morse Band to contribute to.
The result is this album.
The trio and instrumental rock format is not my favourite format and I always draw an extra breath of air before reviewing albums like this. It is not the most exciting and interesting music around.
Tree Of Life plays some pretty hard progressive metal. This albums reeks of molten lava. And that is not a bad thing.
The album is guitar solos and guitar licks orientated with some keyboards filling in on the front of some merciless pounding bass and drums.
The music is very technical.
It also has a lot of good licks and some very interesting details. This one hour long album is a bit of a revelation.
This is indeed a good album and one to really check out. I hope more people get their ears and eyes open to this band and album.
