Twinspirits is an Italian prog metal band and Legacy is their third album. I have not heard their previous albums, but if they are as good as this new album then I will certainly also buy the other two. Well known musician Daniele Liverani “leads” the band and singer Goran Nystrom, who joined the band on their second album called The Forbidden City, sets the tone of Twinspirits. Legacy is divided in two main parts; in the first part the band plays six rather heavy straightforward progressive rock songs of which the rather long opening song called Senseless belongs to my personal favourites. The second part of Legacy is an epic prog rock movement called The Endless Sleep, which is divided into four songs and a symphonic instrumental intro. This epic prog monster clocks in over thirty minutes and it is an absolute musical gem. It is diverse with lots of tempo changes, beautiful vocal parts, bombastic passages, symphonic musical intermezzos, awesome melodic guitar solos by Tommy Ermoli and splendid keyboard solos and melodies by Daniele. The Endless Sleep is in fact a concept story which runs through a journey that the main character is undertaking after a premature death. He meets a superior entity who gives him a second chance to get back to the human life to become a sort of second millennium messiah! Check this story out as it is really breathtaking.

The music on this entire album is rather “heavy” and very dynamic and if you like bombastic Italian prog rock/metal then this album is a must! Play it loud and you will be blown away!
