Between new albums by Amorphis, Thunderstone and Sonata Arctica, a comeback album by Stratovarius and a powerful debut from Free Spirit, 2009 was a banner year for Finnish heavy metal. Now you can add another name to that list - Status Minor, who made their Lion Music debut with Dialog.

Like many (all?) progressive metal bands, Status Minor starts with a foundation based on Dream Theater's genre defining sound, particularly early albums like Images and Words and Awake. But where Dream Theater has focused on sheer technicality and over the top progressive indulgence lately, Status Minor went with a more melodic and accessible approach. Guitar heroics and proggy time signatures are offset by some absolutely gorgeous and lush keyboards, melodies often outweigh solos, and the vocals complete the picture. Markku Kuikka has an incredible mid-range voice that soars when it needs to soar, conveys real emotion and totally draws the listener into each song. Progressive metal is typically "brain music", but Kuikka's vocal delivery on songs like "Something More" and "Fade Away" make them resonate on an emotional level as well.

With just seven songs totaling 46 minutes, Dialog is a relatively brief album (by progressive metal standards, at least), but there's plenty here for prog enthusiasts to sink their teeth into, not the least of which is the nearly 16-minute title track. The first six songs on Dialog average about 5 minutes in length, and rely more on melodies than prog metal indulgence. "Dialog" however, is Status Minor going all-out in an epic, technical fashion. It still has the same heart and soul as the rest of the album, but this is the song that's most likely to seal the deal with progressive metal fans.

As a broadcaster of progressive rock/metal on the internet, I've gotten thousands of releases and I have to say that the Dialog release was without a doubt my favorite for 2009 - and I'm a huge Dream Theater fan. The new release, "Ouroboros" is as much or better a release than Dialog! I got the promo release from the label company and it has been an absolute pleasure airing this second release of Status Minor. The new vocalist takes nothing away from this band. When I wake up in the morning and hear the melody and harmony of "Flowers Die" scrambling through my brain, I know this is going to be a great hit for the guys from Italy.
