TANGENT PLANE – Project Elimi
German progressive power metal that musically relies on longer arrangements and bursts of rhythmic bombast to get its impact across. Alas, all enjoyment drains quickly as soon as vocalist Jan Michaelis attempts to hit anything above middle range – as his thick German accent and off key warbling may send most running for the exits. “Borrow Me Your Dullness” typifies the scattershot scream/talk/ singing approach that just demoralizes the progressive sound and chemistry the other four have.
As the first part of a trilogy, "Project Elimi" needs a stronger vocal presence on the follow ups or I doubt there will be much of a Tangent Plane future.
