SECRET ILLUSION - Awake Before the Dawn
SECRET ILLUSION is one of the best kept secrets of the Greek heavy metal pantheon. Actually is a super talented project.
“Awake before the Dawn” would be defined as a perfect mix of STRATOVARIUS and SYMPHONY X in one!!!!
This is a festival of superb guitar work, absolute keyboard genius, precise rhythm section and one of the best voices in the country.
Lots of progressive touches, neoclassical metal, great compositions the MALMSTEEN way, DREAM THEATER way stuff, you name it all is here!!
Production is fine and what the listener has to get is offered the right way.
“Awaken before the Dawn” is as heavy metal as hell, as neoclassical as it can be and too progressive metal to make you say: wow!!!
Also I’m sure that this is a good way to make your CD collection more valuable both by getting a great CD album and supporting the band too!!!
