Daedalus- The Never Ending Illusion
(Prog Rock Records PRR650)

From Aural Innovations May 2009 update

It took the band 5 years to come up with a follow up (it does not help when 2 out of the 5 members leaves!). Think Progmetal but with some serious lyrical subjects all dealing with determining what is reality versus dream or Illusion in this life we live. The CD was mixed by former Helloween guitarist, Roland Grapow. 11 songs in 57 minutes. This CD begins with a short keyboard intro piece before kicking into Perfect Smile. The music is very melodic with nice guitar solos on all the tracks of the Marillion style often and passionate singing and over all great playing. While this is not really my favourite type of music, these guys are very good. Perhaps a few too many of these padded new age synth stylings at times but the heavy riffs like in Hopeless are great.
