(album review)Poldur’s Gate Project-“Directions”

Is there such thing as synthesized metal? Yes there is! This is the most unusual thing that I have listened to and reviewed for this zine.


This is a one man solo vision of Luca Bussolini and it is a concept album featuring two characters called Hanako and Shin. The concept theme is looking for the new objectives and about the failures along the way which help us in understanding the trail of our lives.

What is so new and different? Well, all the music and vocals on this album are synthesized from software, there is no real musicians, singers in a classical sense of band. And it works! The music is melodic power prog metal with nice riffs, melodic guitar hooks and memorable tunes which caught me humming all the time. In my opinion, the only thing which needs to be worked on is that in some songs, the vocals are too monotone, meaning too same sounding. But, that is only my opinion. I must applaud to Luca for having a vision which carries a bit of controversy but is important. Top song on this album for me is “Time for a Will”-
