Melodic progressive? Well, definitely with a progressive perspective Denis Matenda is keeping matters close to core, but not afraid to go in a more melodic direction when the need calls for it.

The ones I like the best here are the classic progressive compositions. Creative Destruction and You Can Run But You Can't Hide drives a dark proggy beat, slowly building the track, but never loosing my attention. On title track Energy Loader Matenda goes almost Atmos. Check out for instance the part from 3:33. This has Atmos written all over it! But not copy/paste like. Matenda has his own way of doing things and it's a great track. Another section I really like is Adverse Selection from 5:30. Why make things any harder than they need to be?

Fans of progressive trance bordering minimal land will most certainly get a kick out of this, while the more melodic inspiration here and there may make this album appeal also to the psytrance oriented listener. A strong 3/5 over all, but played at the right time most of the tracks would go 5 stars.
