Assailant - Wicked Dream
From the beautiful and lovely Sweden, great bands have emerged. That's why we love 'em! Well...that and the bikini team of course. But musically they're pretty cool as well! ProgMetal is one of the musical forms that are widely popular up north. Assailant comes with their third studio album and I must say; "time well spent boys!"

The danger with ProgMetal to me is the usage of keyboards and the overall sound can be a tad fake. Also, the vocals are often done by guys who while hiding eastern eggs, lost their balls in the process and haven't stopped screaming at a damn high pitch ever since! However, Assailant succeeds in all these areas! The keyboards are of the none annoying type, the overall sound is that of a heavy metal band and the singer is really good! Besides the pretty basic vocals found in progressive metal, he also shouts and roars like a true metal head! Kudos to you my friend!

Especially the title track 'Wicked Dreams' shows what this band is capable of. Melodic, yet heavy as well. The addition of the acoustic song, 'Eternal', is a nice one. It shows another side of the band unseen so far on this album. It's good uptempo and actually pretty damn agressive for a progressive metal album!

This is a good progressive metal album, so if progmetal is yo thang, you'll like this!
