Stormental

This Brazilian quartet came together in early 2006 and quickly recorded a self-titled album. Self-described as "raw prog metal", their sound sits between Euro power metal and progressive metal, almost to the point where the band isn't quite sure which style they're most comfortable with. Often the song structures are relatively straightforward a la power metal, but Rafael Scopel's flashy guitarwork, almost neoclassical at times, shows a more technical side of the band, as does Andrei Leão's very impressive bass work. The production on Stormental is simple and clean, allowing all the instruments equal time. Though a young band, the guys (all in their mid-20's) all have plenty of musical experience, and it shows. The band is currently unsigned (in fact, as of this writing, all of their music is downloadable for free from their website), though they clearly are worthy of a record deal.
