Finland's Fireproven, formed in 2006 and recorded two EPs prior to their first full-length, Future Diary, do know a thing or two about how to make progressive Metal that nails its listener's ears right from the first moments until the very end.

On Future Diary, the band's multilayered progressive Metal approach earns a few nods of respect and admiration: imagine Dan Swanö's take on things on the more progressive side of Metal combined with Amorphis' type of progressiveness, accompanied with both harsh and clean vocal deliveries, all this done with challenging and complex song structures that almost make you go nuts. That's how Fireproven cheers its listeners on this amazingly well-crafted debut. No kidding folks. The maturity of their songwriting is undoubtedly a striking element here; there's no way you could ever come up with any material of this complexity without training for years.

Future Diary is the kind of album that gives a fair reason for the existence of progressive Metal. As much as it's about proving your skills, it's also about proving how to make them sound right. Fireproven are not perfect at it, but they certainly are good enough.
