Exhibition - _Mind Explosion_
by: Pedro Azevedo (3 out of 5)
"Odd name for a band" was pretty much the first thought going through my mind when I saw this demo CD. The second concerned the fact that they used the same distinctive font throughout the package as Dark Tranquillity did on _The Mind's I_ (notice the similar titles as well). When I analysed the music on this Greek band's half-hour demo, what I found was mid-paced, thrash-influenced metal. Even though the vocals seem too upfront, overall the production is decent and does not significantly hamper the band's musical showcase on this lengthy demo. The band seems ambitious and reasonably skilled, even though not always very tight. Their song material still lacks some consistency and strength to take it further and make more of an impression, though. This causes my withholding of an eventual fourth mark in my rating; for now, Exhibition still need some time before it is advisable for them to think of a commercial release. However, I see no reason why they shouldn't eventually get there if they keep improving.
