An all instrumental symphonic progressive metal album from MASTERMIND, a band that was founded in 1986. MASTERMIND's latest effort has the Swedish keyboard virtuoso Jens Johansson in the new lineup. Fifth studio album by this overlooked band named Excelsior from 1998. I have real doubts if this is their best effort as everybody mentioning here. To me is less intristing that the prior album ntil etenity, and I will explain why.

Their second album, Mastermind Volume Two: Brainstorm, was recorded Winter 1988-Spring 1991 and released in January 1992, with an even heavier sound than the first. The 20-minute title track harkens back to ELP's "Tarkus" and has been a frequent concert highlight. The band spent most of 1998 completing their album with Johansson, Excelsior!, which was released at the end of 1998. The new group debuted at Baltimore's POWERMAD 1998 festival in August.
