Bart D. : Prospekt are back with the follow-up to their debut. Not much has changed. They have a new singer, who fits in seamlessly. The compositions seem to have become a bit more interesting and varied. So I mostly stick to my words for the debut. This album also has formidable guitarist Greg Howe on a song and Dragonforce singer Marc Hudson on another. Prospekt isn't as ground-breaking and sublime as the former and as cheesy and silly as the latter. Prospekt is just your solid dose of blistering, technically overpowering progressive metal. You can't go wrong with 'The Illuminated Sky' if you need another dose. And kudos to this young band for not jumping on the djent wagon in any way. If only for that, an interview with the band should be up somewhere around here soon.
