Age of Nemesis: Psychogeist

Fans of Angra, Dream Theater, Symphony X, old school Genesis and Fates Warning, et al., take note. From the land of Hungary comes a new Prog Metal band worthy of comparison, Age Of Nemesis. Their CD Psychogeist (Magna Carta Records) will officially put the country of Hungary on the Metal map. Age Of Nemesis states Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Dream Theater, Deep Purple and Keith Emerson as their main influences. And these influences are easily heard through out this CD.

Psychogeist begins the 11 song Prog Metal ride with the CD opener, "Fate's Door", which begins a 6 song conceptual piece called "The Psychogeist Story". There are lots of off time signatures and unison runs between guitarist, Zoltan Fabian and keyboardist Gyorgy Nagy, that would make any die hard musician rewind the CD and check out that run again! Check out the instrumental, "Goddess Nemesis" and scorcher "Faceless Enemy" as just 2 great examples. AoN deliver the goods on a '70's feel Prog Rock band meets today's technology and Metal. If you can imagine a modern day Yes meets Kansas meets Dream Theater! The Psychogeist album cover is even reminiscent of John Arch era Fates Warning.

AoN's musicianship is top notch, with great tone & excellent production. And YES, the lyrics are in English! Perfect and clean. No overdubbing here. This is a great sonic trip that you will find yourself listening to over and over. Magna Carta has a great release on their hands with Psychogeist to begin 2006. Prog Metal fans, get that credit card ready to make another worthy Metal purchase. Another great Prog Metal band is about to start making the climb up the ladder!
