CD REVIEW: EQUINOX – The Cry Of Gaia
Comprised of four virtuoso musicians including guitarist Inophis – hugely popular in China – French band Equinox sing songs of respect and ecological balance in a symphonic prog metal style.
Based on the Earth spirit Gaia, who is crying due to the damage the human race are doing to her, Equinox’s debut is full of superb performances, epic production and an over-the-top sonic assault.
With touches of classic metal, some speedy playing and the epic vocals of Emmanuel Creis, this is instantly engaging prog metal. The addition of lavish synths, pianos and choral vocals only enhance the end result.
