November Red

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (3 Votes)

Dante is a Progressive Metal band from Germany and November Red is their third album. Their style makes me think of a Metal version of Emerson, Lake & Palmer or King Crimson rather than Dream Theater's more traditional approach. Guitars carry the songs with some crunch then the band changes gears, shifting to a Hammond organ playing a different riff. This gives at least a few of the tracks the feeling that they contain disparate ideas that have been stitched together. This is accomplished smoothly no doubt due to talents of the band members but the songwriting is less than vibrant so November Red is not all that engaging. And with a 61-minute running time stretched over only seven songs, the album can get tedious. Die-hard Progressive Metal fans may find some value in November Red, but there aren't enough hooks for the casual ones.
