WindSeeker - _By the Seed of the Same God_
by: Pedro Azevedo (3.5 out of 5)
This Italian quintet started out as a power metal outfit with their first demo _Breath, Light and Hope_. A few years past, _By the Seed of the Same God_ showcases a thrashier, more aggressive approach to their music -- at least according to WindSeeker's biography. You will find quite a bit of Nevermore and Iced Earth in WindSeeker's relatively modern-sounding power/thrash, with some prog influences thrown into the mix here and there. The band members are technically proficient, the clean singing is competent, and the occasional harsher vox just decent. Production-wise WindSeeker have found a reasonable balance considering this is only a demo CD, though when their singer hits his higher notes the sound comes out rather strange to my ears. Overall, WindSeeker are at a stage where they are competent as a band, able to create some good tunes and reasonably entertaining songs, and now need to excel a bit more as far as really capturing the listener. In any case, these guys look like they might be a good band in the making.
