Prime Suspect

Frontiers Records 2010

Made up of three members of Khymera and the voice behind Dreamtide this Italian melodic hard rock/AOR band has produced a solid debut album. Prime Suspect could be looked at as a continuation of Khymera. Certainly fans of Khymera will love this album. It is well produced and contains a sound that is both modern and classic. While honestly it is by no means Earth shattering in it's approach it should be looked at as more than a footnote in the genre. I'm sure melodic metal fan's will be rabid over this and I wouldn't fault them for it. It's good for what it is. Maybe it's not an instant classic by my standards. That said though if you love your rock with more keyboards than guitars you could certainly do worse.
