    Within Another - Conflict With Reason

    Year of Release: 2001
    Label: Independent
    Catalog Number: n/a
    Format: CD
    Total Time: 25:50:00

    Formed in spring 2001, Within Another is another promising band to enter the prog metal arena. The band consists of three members, Dean Sternberg (Guitar, Vocals), Chuck Nacarrato (Drums) and Mike Poplees (Bass) and this EP is as far as I know their first recording.

    The term "power-trio" really comes to its right as far as the music goes. Their style is what I like to call PowerProg, blending superb power-riffing with technical elements and subtlety. As mentioned the riffing is very much the driving force of the music, accompanied by a steady rhythm section and Dean Sternbergs excellent vocals. He has a clear, mid-to-high ranged voice and sings each note with effortless ease. Really impressive! There is a slight dark, moody atmosphere to the songs. And although the songs are filled with technical details and intricate passages, it never gets in the way of the solid melody-lines which make this effort catchy and accessible. All four songs are very good and there is no surprise that the feedback from labels and press has been positive.

    The technical skills of the musicians are top notch and although the production is slightly muddy sounding, it is above average for a demo EP. I can't wait to hear these songs with a more clear and powerful production though.

    Judging by the material presented here Within Another is a mature, skillful band which by writing more quality songs like these should attract label interest worldwide. Also worth noticing is that the band since this release has recruited a 4th member in guitarist Sebastian Kelly.
