Ashent is a Progressive Hard Rock/Metal band hailing from Italy, and Lion Music is re-issuing their Flaws Of Elation debut, originally released in 2006.  Like most Progressive compositions, there are stylistic twists and turns throughout this album, and American-bred vocalist Steve Braun comes across as a competent front man for the band.  Unfortunately, during many of the songs, the vocal patterns just don’t seem to fit in well with the musical mechanics.  Flaws of Elation is an easy listen, but that vocal-to-music disconnect prevents anything on this re-release from truly pulling you in, making this album’s potential elation regrettably flawed.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
