Sylvain Rouvière has assembled a superb lineup of musicians to bring his Kaktus Project to life, and the end result is the grandiose musical and vocal splendor known as “Superstition”. In the vocals department, Rouvière has utilized the breathtaking talents of the following: Mike Dimeo, Amanda Somerville, Henning Basse, Mats Leven, Rejane Soulard, Oliver Hartmann, Célia Duval, and of course, himself: Sylvain Rouvière. Seeing the awesome list of vocalists here, you know you are in for a musical surprise of a lifetime. The guitar section gets even hotter with the following diverse and talented guitar players: Vincent Morla, Manu Livertout, Alesk Turbé, Charley Corbiaux, Axel Bonneau, Didier Chesneau lending their personal touch to this great masterpiece. The one interesting aspect I noticed on this album is the fact that all 13 songs found here sound so unique and different from one another due to so many songwriters and musicians involved. This definitely gives so much color and variety to the discriminating progressive rock/metal music fan. Just check out the mind boggling and sweeping guitar leads on the upbeat-sounding “Above The Flame”, and you will be in total music bliss, ya. The overall musicianship is world class, and gives “Superstition” so much depth and emotion; it will suck you right into your stereo’s speakers and make you a part of the whole Kaktus Project experience, Power rockers such as “Possession” will make you pump your fist in the air with it groove driven guitar harmonies and memorable synth harmonies. I could go on and on, ranting and raving how freaking great this album is, but in all honesty, you’ve got to check it out for yourself to really feel the auditory pleasure found here. And the cover Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which is a bonus track, is done so well, it would make Brian May, the late Freddie Mercury and rest of Queen smile with great happiness. Highly recommended for fans of Queen, The Who, Dream Theater and Rush.
Check it out and rock out ‘til you drop!!!
