Synopsis

Album Description
Like an approaching storm Altura's debut album, "Mercy", begins with the gentle sounds of rain and far off thunder. The keyboards echo the pattern of the rain before the guitars and drums crash in. The album continues with complex rhythms and hypnotic time signatures to create a powerful blend of progressive metal. The vocals rise above the melodic storm as sweeping keyboards drift in and out among the layers of guitars. The lyrics bring a personal, often introspective touch to the songs, giving them a warmth not generally associated with heavier music. For fans of bands such as Dream Theater, Shadow Gallery and Queensryche, progressive metal is given a new face with "Mercy" from Altura.
