Adagio - Underworld (2003)



Format: ape + cue + log
Genre: Neo-classical/Progressive Power metal
Release Date: 2003
Label: NTS




When Adagio released Sanctus Ignis a couple of years ago, the band were met with barrages of reviews calling them Symphony X clones. True progressive metal fans just looking for another quality disc released in their beloved genre found true bliss in the neo-classically driven / song-oriented style of Adagio. With neo-classical guitar wiz Stephan Forte at the helm, and vocalist David Readman of Pink Cream 69 enlisted, the disc was otherwise highly praised and accepted. Since the band was a project and pulled musicians from other highly acclaimed bands such as Elegy, many thought that this would be a one-time deal.....
