Mexican symphonic prog rockers Cast are back with another symphonic adventure of epic songs. A modern symphonic prog-rock album with heavier moments, the music has a lot of quiet and beautiful atmosphere where the melody is carried slowly. The opening “Rules of the Desert” is 11+ epic that is absolutely mind blowing. “Power and Outcome” is an album where the emotions flow perfectly accompanied by the musical lines. Make sure you hunt it down and enjoy it!
“Power and Outcome” showcases an impressive combination of creative instrumentation and heartfelt vocal delivery; the band has created a suite of music that coheres in a deeply compassionate and emphatic way. This is a rich and eclectic record with echoes of classical music, the Canterbury progressive rock, jazz and a bit of metal.
“Power and Outcome” is a masterclass example of current progressive music that perfectly fuses vintage and modern sounds with an equally on-point balance of subtlety.
To conclude, this is an incredible album. It’s a lengthy, complex, emotional, and pretty much perfect example of modern progressive rock.
