CD Reviews

Punk-prog? It exists!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Nothing is (was) in Mentaur's favour. This music is the kind of neo-prog bombastic rock that is currently hated by the press (think Arena, Pendragon), and they do not have the financial muscle of those bands (this sounds like it was recorded in someone's bedroom - albeit by 5 maestros, who knew exactly what they were doing).There are some poor tracks and some cringeworthy lyrics (Cracks, Chasing Time) but there are moments of sheer daring and virtuosity that make you regret the fact that this band is no more. The Last Battle, especially, showcases a team of stunning musicians, including a singer who can crack your speakers and a guitarist who can bring tears to the eyes.In short, epic music, all the more impressive for being done on the cheap. If you like the genre, you will be mightily awed."
