PRYMARY The Tragedy Of Innocence
ProgRock Records (2006)

Californian prog metal, complete with concept, intricate keyboards, some powerful riffs, chunky riffs, the full Monty.

Easy to see Dream Theater comparisons, but there's a lot more here. From brutal to melodic metal and back, light breaks, some female narration (essential to the concept, songs working in chronological order from 25 years ago to the present day), the subject, musicianship and power are all emotional.

Opening with 'Dirty Room Pt I' we get melodic power prog at its best, and later while some of the riffs would otherwise be disjointed, they work in a chunky riff way. Hard to describe, it just works well. Mike Di Sarro's vocals have a good range, but stick to the mid range with underlying growls, which work well on 'Soul Deceiver'.

Powerful metallic prog well worth checking out
