I first heard about Antithesis in August 1999 during my vacations in the Cleveland area, where I attended a Great White show, and Antithesis happened to be the opening act.  The performance was impressive enough for me to buy their self-titled debut album.  This is a review of the remastered edition, which I got earlier this year.  Interestingly, this new edition has nine tracks compared to the original ten, and they are not in the same order.  This edition is definitely worth getting if you already have the first edition, as the sound is much better than the original.

Antithesis is a progressive power metal band, and the material on this album is pretty good.  The musicians are very technical, like one would expect from progressive metal bands.  This is both good and bad, as some of the songs are a little difficult to get into, although this material is much more accessible than albums from some other bands that should have a For musicians only sticker on :).  The vocals are a little dark, but not monotonous, and the vocalist does show that he knows how to use his voice.  Overall, a good array of song, with an instrumental track used as the closer.

The CD booklet could use a few more pages, but considering this is an independent release, this is normal.  All the lyrics, and pictures of the band members are included.  Hey, mine's even autographed :).
