Circle of Nero - _Massive Obliss_
(Independent, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
Hard to really say just how I feel about Circle of Nero. This talented progressive metal / hard rock outfit play truly tight and technical metal music, topped by the great vocal range of Doyle Stone, but it just seems a bit too flashy for me. It is like they're going all out to show just how good they are and impress someone. Guitarist Koky Flores really knows his way around a guitar and it shows, and while I think the music seems to "show-off-like", I must admit the solos are pretty neat. I'm on the fence with this one, but in the end the band's talent helps make this worth a listen -- especially tracks like the dominant "Dark Side of Eternity" or the nifty "Thorazine Dream".
