I'm always ranting about when the next thing in Metal is gonna come right?, well finally and after months of waiting I have found a new contestant to my annual "Best new/unknown/underrated act of the year", the entry? Disillusion, the label? Metal Blade Records, the result? An exquisite piece of work!

Let's head back a little first shall we? Disillusion is a relatively new band, formed in 2001, they released a 4-track Demo and a Mcd before grabbing a record deal, and releasing this, their debut album "Back To Times Of Splendor".

Rating: 10 The pinnacle of progressive metal, a monument, absolute perfection.
Oh and the intro to 'Back to the Times of Splendor' actually convinced me to go and buy a Violin... Turns out that they are hard to play so I took it back the next day.

Rating: 9 A very lucky find for me. I shrugged it off at first then gave it a very intent listen and was blown away.
