Fallacy - _Martirios_
by: Pedro Azevedo (4 out of 5)
Here's a novel concept: mixing jazzy guitar/bass/drum work with Portuguese folk chants. Does it work? Partially, in my opinion. I have to give Fallacy credit for not following trends, doing their own thing and trying to be innovative while they're at it; furthermore, credit is also due for the technical skill they showcase. They seem to have gone deep into Portuguese countryside and villages to find the folk chants they merge with the music in some occasions -- forget about early Moonspell if that's what comes to your mind when Portuguese folk is mentioned; this is entirely different. Fallacy's jazzy, progressive instrumental section (clarinet and saxophone occasionally included), technically skilled as it is, could still have been more dynamic and powerful for my taste -- especially the guitar work and sound itself. Still, if progressive metal is your thing, the music on this demo CD is definitely worth listening to for its innovation, experimentation and technical quality. Personally, I feel Fallacy still need something more in order to fully convince me. Maybe they will be able to improve what they currently lack for their music to become more attractive to me in the future, more than just interesting experimentation -- I wouldn't be surprised.
