Highly recommended and a valuable addition to your Metal album collection.

From their late 1980s Hard Rock beginnings to the successful collaborations with a Symphonic orchestra, the Polish Rock/Metal act CETI have been ever changing, but what always remained stable about them was the extraordinary quality of their musicianship. Starting from the band's founders, charismatic front-man Grzegorz Kupczyk and classically trained keyboardist/singer Maria 'Marihuana' Wietrzykowska, the strength of their line-ups was an indisputable fact throughout the twenty five years of their tenure. After numerous personal changes and having trodden many a musical path, CETI now returns with their fifteenth album entitled 'Brutus Syndrome'.

A deafening drum roll opens the first track 'Fight To Kill' which is fuelled by fiery guitar riffs. 'Wizards Of The Modern World' electrifies with its breakneck pace somewhere along the border between the classic Heavy and Speed Metal; it is one of many proofs throughout the entire album that Kupczyk still remains the finest Polish voice of the genre. 'Devil Made Me Do It' with its Dio-esque style is followed by 'Master Of Dull' which is another feisty gallop embroidered with a melodic guitar solo. 'The Evil And The Troy' gravitates more towards Power Metal aesthetics with its harmonic vocals and numerous instrumental duels and interludes. 'The Song Will Remain' is raw verses heavily contrasted with powerful, melodic choruses, making it one of the album's highlights.

Another highlight – yet of different nature – is 'Somethin' More'; an acoustic slow-ish track gradually building up into a grandiose power ballad that may remind you of Whitesnake's gem 'Sailing Ships' (from their 'Slip Of The Tongue' album). Similarly to its predecessor, 'Second Sin' also features a mellow acoustic intro – but only for it to morph into a heavy, keyboard-laden Metal piece further on. 'Sons Of Brutus' and the final selection 'Run To Nowhere' are no worse than the rest of the material with an abundance of grand six string licks and the excellent work of the rhythm section against some really impressive vocals.

CETI's return with '...Syndrome' is nothing but a triumphant one – there isn't a better way to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the band's foundation than releasing an album that is another milestone of their works. Heavy and guitar-laden, but also tastefully melodic, 'Brutus Syndrome' is a brilliant compromise between the contemporary production and the classic Metal sound. It also portrays the musicians in excellent shape – and with an apparent excess of musical ideas that resulted in them releasing not only a full album, but also two additional singles with some unreleased rarities (one of them being 'Game Of Love' that features an impressive vocal duo between Kupczyk and Alessandro Del Vecchio). Highly recommended and a valuable addition to your Metal album collection.
