Eldritch are another excellent prog metal band from Italy. Their debut had some neoclassical influence and sounded somewhat dated, but the next 2 releases are excellent discs fans of prog metal should look into. Reverse (a seemingly appropriate title), showed the band simplifying their sound and incorporating some electronic elements. Many fans have declared it as their "sellout" record or an attempt to play nu-metal, but I think they are definitely overreacting. While not as good as the previous 2, it's still a solid effort. Recently a new demo has secured them a deal and a new CD will be recorded in April 2003. I haven't heard the new material, but it has been reported to be in the same direction as Reverse.
