If being more precise, I must say that Beto Vasquez comes from Nepal and their popularity is granted by Nems Enterprises' promotion. The album's lay-out is in deed exquisite and so are the guest-artists so that it makes a strong impression from a first glance: Candice Night (BLACKMORE'S NIGHT), Tarja Turunen (NIGHTWISH), Sabine Edelsbacher (EDENBRIDGE), three incredible voices whose live appreciation enjoys quite a great success. Yet I must say this is only the beginning of a surprise since on the other side we meet instrumentalists of great value as well and here they are: Jorg Michael (STRATOVARIUS) and Fabio Liane (RHAPSODY). I assume you have already made an idea regarding the band's direction as oscillating between Power, Heavy and Progressive Metal, with a powerful atmospheric note as well as with South American traditional tendencies so that Beto Vasquez manages to put together a vivid proof of skillfulness and inspiration. It is a digestible album with a commercial harmonious and rhythmical sound, an intense keyboard and Metal riffs perhaps in the view of a Mike Oldfield Heavy version. Although it is not my favorite style, the recording clarity and craftsmanship of these trained musicians determine me to bow my respects towards them! In deed it is a true pleasure to listen to such edible sound yet only if not for a long time. The positive specter rather characterized by extremely vivid colors is not quite on my taste although the saxophone's sound during "Through Times Part III" truthfully makes my heart weep! I might not be exactly the right person to appreciate properly the actual value of this album but I know for sure it is hard to found a musical project when are involved artists from Nepal, Austria, England, Finland or Italy.
