Here's another entertaining and extremely well done Prog-Metal album that i can highly recommend. AMASEFFER(People Of The Book) are an Isreali band and they base the concept of this record on the story of Moses and Isreal as seen in the book of Exodus. This album is part one of three and deals with the years they were in slavery(Slaves For Life)and the birth of their deliverer(Moses)up to the ten plagues that came upon Egypt before they escaped. The vocals are very well done by THERION's own Mats Levin plus we get ORPHANED LAND's Kobi Farhi doing the Hebrew vocals. What i love about this recording is that it takes you back to that time with the samples and sounds. Of course it's very Middle Eastern sounding and being Prog-Metal it does rock out pretty good at times.The focus is on the story though and usually this is where i'd complain as this is the reason i usually am not too into concept albums because the story is put ahead of the music. Here though i just get too caught up with this familiar event and really enjoy it. My favourite part of the album is during the song "Midian" where Pharoah comes in growling. This is so dramatic and powerful. Anyway the whole album is just a pleasure to listen to as they've been careful with every detail. A must for fans of concept albums.
