Wisconsin is better known for cheese, snow and the ďfrozen tundraĒ of Lambeau Field than neo-progressive metal, but Strange Land is determined to be added to the list. I must say I havenít had the privilege of listening to anything like this for quite some time. Strange Land blends the real metal guitar sound last heard in the 80ís and powerful clean vocals. There are many excellent electric and acoustic passages on this journey of mind and soul. I must admit I donít own a lot of prog metal besides Queensryche, Rush and Seasons of the Wolf but Strange Land fits nicely here. I canít compare them to anyone which is a good thing but fans of Dream Theater and the likes will surely enjoy this. You have to experience this from start to finish to truly reap the full rewards.
