HEART OF SUN picture
The basic idea for forming HEART OF SUN springs from the meeting of five artistic personalities who share the love for sound research, the energy of metal, the progressive atmospheres and a little hint of psychedelic. After significant musical experiences that lead the guitarist Gianluca Ferro to record and release albums with several metal bands (among which ARKHE, FIURACH, DOOMSWORD and TIME MACHINE), Gianluca met keyboardist Mark Vikar (POWER SYMPHONY, BEHOLDER) and they begin to work together, united by a strong synergy. The line-up is ultimately settled with the enrollment of bassist Davide Betelli (AMBERMOON, and several collaborations as a first-call sessionman) and drummer Sigfrido Percich (ADRALMECH, ACRON, TIME MACHINE) who proposed to do a concept-piece and writes the lyrics as well.

After spending some months looking for a talented vocalist, the band realizes that they already knew a great vocal-talent.With Pino Tozzi joining the line-up, the foundations for what is

Really interesting début from this Italian band.

The basic sound of this band is from the Dream Theater school of prog metal, with dark and slightly gritty guitar riffs and melodic synths dominating the soundscape in a way much similar to what DT did on their Awake album. Heart of Sun have their own thing going here though; using the foundation to explore tracks in quite a different manner than this influence.

Heart of Sun is a band very much exploring in their tunes. They have a multitude of changes in style and pace in each song, constantly evolving the tunes. And always staying melodic too, even when rocking out. And a feature throughout the album are dark soundscapes, even when at the most mellow, there's a dark tinge to these tunes that is most fascinating.

Good album worth checking out by fans of melodic prog metal; only negative aspect here is the vocals, which are a bit on the weak side at times.
