The Gift Of Tears
A new name to me, but Ulysses have been on the go for over a decade, building a name for themselves amongst the hard core fans of progressive rock.
They're working in the ever popular medium of symphonic prog rock, although the hard edged guitars bring them close to the world of prog metal. However, the keyboards, harmonies and melodies mean that it's fans of bands like Spock's Beard and The Flower Kings who will take them to heart.
As befits a prog band, they take their time across some lengthy instrumental passages on songs like 'How Much More' and the show stopping epic 'Anat'. The latter is one of the finest pieces of prog you're likely to hear all year, resonating as it does with an emotional depth often lacking in technically minded bands. A highly recommended release.
