XTERIA - Outshine

XTERIA play progressive metal in pretty much temperate tones. They sound though kinda "flat", since the compositions (7 in the number) are pretty long and somewhere in the middle, end up boring enough, without managing to surpassing mediocrity. A few good moments, are offered by the vocals and the guitar, while the keyboards, wherever they are used, are simply childish.
To end, the titles of the songs show a lack of originality - "Points Of View", "Eyes Of The World", "Soldiers Of Fortune" !!!
