Album Notes
Virtuel (former JEKYLL HYDE) is a Progressive/Christian rock band from Bulgaria. It was formed in the early 90’s by Nick Markov (keyboards, guitar, songwriter) and Rosen Angelov (vocals, bass, acoustic guitar, songwriter). A few years later the guitar virtuoso Konstantin Jambazov joined the band for a number of local and national gigs. He is also a songwriter and plays bass, keyboards and does the drum programming. The first studio album “Return to revelation” was recorded in 1998. Due to the fact that the three musicians live in 3 different countries (Nick Markov-used to live in USA, Rosen Angelov-UK and Konstantin Jambazov-Bulgaria).

***** Review *****
The Bulgarian threesome Virtuel is a band that knows its way around symphonic progressive rock, melodic hard rock and progressive metal, and mostly explores within the confines of these three styles on their latest album "Conception of Perception" in an intelligent and compelling manner. Symphonic inspired keyboard arrangement and neo-classical guitar soloing represent two of the most common aspects of their compositions, which otherwise range from the flamboyant and bombastic to the compelling and easygoing in expression. As far as a key audience is concerned, I suspect most of those who have Queen, ELP and early Malmsteen on high rotation should enjoy this disc, and of Deep Purple and Dream Theater are other bands to your liking I'd say that this CD should be a fairly safe buy.
This is a bit hard to place in a progressive-rock sub-genre. It has the musical elements of 70s arena rock, neo-progressive rock, and to a lesser degree, Progressive Metal. References to Pendragon and Asia would certainly be reasonable. At times the vocalist sounds much like John Wetton, although with a slightly sunnier tone. Keyboards, mostly electric, play a major role, and the occasional nod to Rick Wakeman can be heard. The music is lively, and there's a lot going on at the same time.
