The debut album from American Symphonic/Progressive Metal act
"The Count, Act I - The Soul Of A Prisoner" is based on the book by Alexandre Dumas-Count of Monte Cristo and the album is about his imprisonment in the Chateau Dif .
Epic story,epic songs and epic band.
The music fits the story perfect and band is impressive during the 10 track long album.
Jeff Beardsley is a brilliant singer and Kristine Rios guests as the voice of Mercedes on 3 tracks and is fantastic.
The production is good but is the one thing that I really hope the band gets a bigger budget for an even bigger production.
They sure have proven that they deserve this with their first amazing record.
I'm already looking forward to The Count,Act II:Intermission that the band is currently working on.
BEST TRACK : Darkness
SOUNDS LIKE : Kansas,Dream Theater,Iron Maiden,Symphony X,Fates Warning,Savatage
