Editorial Reviews

A Brillant new Italian band, Heart of Sun is an increadible new talent. Formed from the Ashes of several known bands, these five artistic personalities which share the love for sound research, the energy of Metal, progressive atmospheres and some psychedelic, have created a sound of their own that is exceptional. Gianluca Ferro (Guitarist previously for Doomsword & Time Machine) along with Mark Vikar (of Power Symphony & Beholder) find a strong synergy, ad in Davide Betelli (Ambermoon & Psychorder) and drummer Sigfrido Percich (Adramelch, Acron & Indastria) and a great vocalist Pino Tozzi and you now have Heart of Sun. Bask in it, enjoy it, it's amazing, beautiful, and dark sounds will trasport you to another dimension.

The Italian prog-metal band Heart of Sun features shredding guitar solos, Dream Theater-like arrangements, superb musicianship, and enough of its own unique approach to songwriting to make me hope they release a new album soon.

I love prog metal that offers shades of gray, atmospheric nuances interspersed with balls-out metal mania. When a band can engage my mind while it's kicking my behind, I'm a happy guy.

There's enough comparison to Dream Theater here to make any prog-metal fan happy. But -- and I know I risk a tarring and feathering by admitting this -- I like Heart of Sun better than the last few Dream Theater albums.

Take track five ("2016 AD.NET") for example. An offbeat, almost jazz-piano-like intro provides the bed for some tasty slap-bass playing, and nearly David Gilmore-like guitar noodling. The song is only 3:58. But it manages to pack a lot of clever musicianship into those scant four minutes. I can imagine this song would make for a great improv session played live.

Three songs ("Evil Tree," "Proxima Centauri," and "Solar Wind") clock in over eight minutes in length, which is great for a prog-head like myself. I love it when a band can stretch out and write lengthy compositions. (Any band that can write long songs that still hold my attention gets two thumbs up in my book.)

My favorite tracks tend to be the really atmospheric ones, like track eight ("The Invention of God"), the aforementioned "2016CD.NET," and "Solar Wind" (track nine). "Solar Wind" begins in an almost Pink Floyd-like way (shades of David Gilmore!) that slowly builds to a catchy-riff climax.

A gentle piano song ("Sea of Tranquility") closes the album, leaving me wanting more.

I first came across this band from the most recent Nightmare Records Sampler that was given out during the ProgPower Festival held in Atlanta this past October. I liked what I heard from the track "Into The Black Hole", but I was even more impressed with the full length disc!

These guys really hit the spot if you're hungry for heavy riffs with the right amount of progressive keyboard tones. The vocals are clean and melodic, reminding me a bit of Ray Alder (Fates Warning/Redemption). The production is tight and balanced, making it hard for me to fathom that this is a debut!

I'm looking forward to hearing more from the band, Heart of Sun, in the years to come. Hopefully, these guys will make an appearance at the famous ProgPower Festival's Showcase in 2008.....we'll see.

What a nice debut from a band that I had not heard of until ProgPower USA this year. I was introduced to this band and am glad I was. Being a huge prog metal fan, this is right up my alley. These guys are a great mix and blend of many of my favorite bands.. like...Dream Theater, Shadow Gallery,etc. The vocals are great, going from melodic to a bit more gruff alla Russell Allen.

This one has it all....great riffs, great drums, harmonies........you cant go wrong here if you like prog metal that is oozzing with talent.

Great vocals, guitar, and keyboards...this CD has it all! About half the songs are fairly long. My favorite tracks are "The Last Experiment," "Into the Black Hole," and "Solar Wind." Recommended to fans of progressive metal!
