A fantastic metal album, filled with songs that any self respecting metal fan can not do without.

I have been a fan of the voice and music of Andy B. Frank for quite some time, so when the brand new album from his Brainstorm offshoot Symphorce announced that they had a new album in the works, I was obviously more than pleased. And this new CD from Symphorce is as good a metal album as I was expecting it to be, but I still have a reservation about 'Unrestricted'. Which is that at times it is very hard to distinguish Symphorce from Brainstorm, which shouldn't be a problem as I love both bands, but I think that a little more separation in the sound and overall song writing style of both of these acts could only help them to have a more separate identity from each other, which can only be a good thing, and prolong both bands lives.

All that being said, 'Unrestricted' is still an in your face metal album that any fan of either band (or both) will really enjoy. And they will especially love the aggressive wall of power that Symphorce hit you with, as they attack each of the songs on 'Unrestricted'. They will also love the way Symphorce still find a way to inject their songs with enough melody to sink a boat, yet never lose that raw power they posses along the way. I found myself happily humming along with the songs as forceful and in your face as 'Until It's Over' or 'The Waking Hour' after only a couple of listens, which explains why I probably like both bands as much as I do.

Even with my little reservation about the similarity of Symphorce and Brainstorm, I cannot deny that 'Unrestricted' is a fantastic metal album, filled with songs that any self respecting metal fan can not do without, which makes buying this very intelligent slice of power metal a no brainer.
