Italian troupe Odd Dimension dole out other influences besides the progressive metal that you’d expect on their debut affair SYMMETRICAL. Championing a multifaceted mix of heavy and melodic nuances, this act injects modern Euro metal bite into traditional metal song structures (“The Day Meets the Night”) intertwined with a complex concoction of chops from bands like Fates Warning and Dream Theater shooting out from virtually every position (“Rising Through Light”). Despite a solid musical showing demonstrated throughout (“Light Speed Journey”), a waning vocal delivery disappointingly diminishes the power and majesty many of these songs come close to attaining, resulting in making an album that could have been much more engaging than realized.
