Julien Damotte Trapped new music review

Damotte, Julien: Trapped

Progressive Metal
Rating: 4.0/5.0

French guitarist and composer Julien Damotte realizes his second album, Trapped, a solid work of progressive metal, a concept album expressing his on reflections on the human condition. Damotte blends his extensive guitar service, in lessons and performance, with elements of neo-classical metal, power metal, and some slight nods to melodic death metal to form some creative arrangements. What Mr. Damotte accomplishes is hardly novel, but it is genuine and passionate. You'll hear movements that will remind of anything from Dream Theater to Evergrey with allusions and interpretations of the best progressive metal. What sets Trapped, and Damotte's performance apart is his simple, but profound, energy and determination. Songs like The Voice Within Your Soul or What You've gone through show both musical inspiration and soulful ambition. On Trapped, Julien Damotte reveals intimate details of his ruminations upon life and his serious desire for musical adventure. This makes Trapped an intriguing and entertaining work worthy of your consideration. Recommended.
