Metamorphosis - Metamorphosis (1999)
The debut album from this Czech Republic band.
The band was a quartet and the lineup was cello, violins, guitars and vocals.
The band has so far released three albums. I only got this album from them.
The band has been labeled as a RIO band in the almighty Progarchives and that is spot on. The band is indeed a RIO band. Or to be more precise; a chamber rock band. Although the rock element here is not particular obvious.
The music has also got a lot of gipsy music elements. The violins and cello is very fast playing at times.
The music is mostly chamber rock. There are some vocals here too and I am at loss to understand why they have included a melodic, slightly bizzarre and melodic song like piece of music halfway through this album. Maybe that is a form of humour. But it does not sit that well on this album.
This album is forty-six minutes long and it has some good stuff. I am here referring to the chamber rock tracks. It also has some less than good stuff. Far less than good stuff. The vocals sounds.... well, they does not sound good at all. Hence my rating of this album.
