SL THEORY – Cipher (2019)

While SL THEORY has already three albums under their belt, their just released “Cipher” is my first approach to them. And glad I did it… “Cipher” is an awesomely crafted album mixing progressive elements with classy AOR / Melodic Rock.
This exquisite band displays here a unique, well-thought and precision-executed piece of music, sophisticated compositions and quality musicianship on the path of Prog Rock and AOR giants like Kansas, Styx, Queen, and Foreigner, and add some Ayreon as well.
From epic Prog Rock, to ‘heavy’ AOR and even a couple of surprising bluesy and funky touches, SL THEORY surprises track after track.
