Lights from Oblivion

Rated 3/5 (60%) (7 Votes)

Lights from Oblivion is the third full-length release of Progressive Metal from Italy's Adramelch. I'd like to write good things about it but there isn't much to say. The playing is generally acceptable except for the bass work, which is excellent. The songwriting is flat and there's nothing terribly memorable about any of the songs. They seem to be put together in a patchwork fashion giving many a rather "bumpy" flow. Overall this is standard Progressive Metal with nods towards Dream Theater and maybe Anubis Gate, but there is also a clear 70s Progressive Rock thread a la Genesis or King Crimson running through the album.

As I stated at the outset, there isn't much to say about Lights from Oblivion. I don't hate it but I simply cannot come up with a reason to listen to it again. Serious Progressive Metal fans only.
