A nice surprise here from Slovakian first timers Endless Main, a Power Metal record that has attitude, sophistication, and a great deal of potential. Being self-released, Sea Of Lies doesn't have the most professional production job, but the dark, enveloping sound fits their music well, especially the progressive segments. What sets Endless Main apart from their competitors is a good choice of genre; they bring the dark, almost depressive soundscapes of Dark At Dawn and fuse them with the majesty of early Symphony X and Time Requiem, whilst not forgetting the melodic sweetness of Arachnes and Secret Sphere. Considering their country of origin, it's a refreshing change, one that makes songs like "Only Once" pretty monstrous.
The great thing Endless Main have going for them is they know how to squeeze the best out of a style that is in decline, and those in the know will appreciate that. A band to watch, for sure.
