From Richmond, Virginia comes the new album from the progressive rock band, Kinetic Element. Their new album titled "The Face Of Life" is the band's third studio album and it will be released on March 1st. It features only four songs that fit perfectly on vinyl, as every one is an epic masterpiece. The album begins with the powerful, attention grabbing opener "Epistle." The band just excite your senses from from the start, before diving into the sixteen-minute epic "All Open Eyes."

The tempo changes within the song will certainly keep you glued to the band's wonderful musicianship. Kinetic Element follow that up with the nearly twenty minute "The Face Of Life," which draws from the band's early prog-rock influences. The album closes with the quiet ballad "Last Words" as Kinetic Element deliver a complete piece of musical expression worthy of repeat listens.

As I entered Reggie’s Rock Club on the final day of Progtoberfest, the Virginia band Kinetic Element were winding up their set … their take on classic prog, spearheaded by keyboardist Mike Visaggio, sounded accomplished and intriguing; I wished I could have arrived earlier and heard more. Plus, you gotta love a band with a lead singer in a kilt!

It's the kind of album that you could just sit with a loved in front of, as a live, on stage band entity, close your eyes, and allow to absorb each and every crafted beat, swirl, and instrumental brilliance within you.

— Anne Carlini

A nice candidate for top 10 for 2015. A nice intriguing art work.
Travelog is a much more symphonic affair, with a strong jazz-rock fusion influence.

— Prog Archives

... is an exceptional exercise in experimentation, for it is bellyful of disjointed melodies and varying rhythms, all utilized to a level of outstanding resonance.

— The Rocktologist

The former transitions between madrigal sounding keyboards, fine organ solos, ripping guitar parts and softer acoustic led sections while the latter is a wonderful slice of classic symphonic prog with spellbinding keyboards, thick bass lines and complex Howe-like guitar fills.

— Sea of Tranquility

All tracks on the album have their own signature, which is not unusual, but in this case it shows the diversity of what Kinetic Element is capable of.

— Angelo's Rock Orphanage

Those who enjoy the slow burn of epic prog – think Yes‘ Close to the Edge more than Tales From Topographic Oceans – will enjoy this delightfully adventurous yet accessible set.

... this is album as whole is great connection between advantages of Neo Prog and Classical Music (mostly in terms of keyboards/guitar elements, just hear guitar in The Ascent, is it reminding you 19th century now ?).

— Prog Archives

Those guys really did their homework, for it´s easy to see they have the right influences (ELP, Yes, Genesis, among others, plus some jazz stuff here and there to spice it up) and still they come up with something totally of their own.

Every song is a winner and the arrangements are very tasteful. Every musician plays its part at the right moment, resulting a very harmonic sound.

They all are skillful but they play for the music, not for showing off.

— Prog Archives

I quickly came to the conclusion that this music is ‘a vintage keyboard fan’s wet dream’! Apart from the instrumental Meditation, with beautiful play on the acoustic guitar in rhythm, solo and overdubs, the other six tracks are loaded with bombastic Hammond-organ and MiniMoog-synthesizer along glorious Mellotron-violin and -choir and swinging grand piano

— Background Magazine

There is a sense of hope prevailing in the songs, which I feel in both the tone of the music itself and is also evident from the lyrics. They speak of trying to overcome obstacles, believing in oneself and not fearing them.

Mike’s style of music embodies, to me at least, the true spirit of classic progressive rock with it’s intricate instrumentation and amazing thought provoking lyrics.

Mike’s instrument of choice is the keyboard, and gives a very vintage vibe to his playing. In many ways this albums sounds like it could have been released in the mid-seventies.

— ProgNaut

Visaggio wears his influences on his sleeve.

There is no doubt that he is a very accomplished keyboardist.

And I have to say that as I listen to this album there are very many parts of it I really enjoy
