Max Enix, a versatile artist donning multiple hats as a composer, singer, art director, lyricist, actor etc., unveils a magnum opus with his double album, “Far From Home.” Backed by the prestigious Budapest Orchestra and featuring a long list of guest musicians (singers, guitarists etc.), this musical masterpiece promises an unparalleled sonic journey, boasting a fusion of progressive-symphonic-post rock/metal, film score and a myriad of diverse elements, including world/new age, hip hop, jazz and avant-garde influences, never heard before. “Far From Home” transcends musical boundaries, weaving a tapestry of epic, emotional and complex compositions. Enix, drawing inspiration from the likes of Devin Townsend, Dream Theater, Hans Zimmer and an array of iconic artists, creates a universe of its own. The album promises a symphony that resonates with fans of various genres, from metal enthusiasts to followers of classical and world music. This double album is not a simple collection of ordinary tracks, but a conceptual music gem. It delves into the beauty of life, explores the human condition, and turns towards spirituality while simultaneously denouncing societal issues. “Far From Home” stands as a mirror to today’s world, addressing the potential consequences of our actions. “Far From Home” creates soundscapes beyond music and words, a universe that extends beyond the confines of traditional musical expression. I enjoyed great vocal performances, intricate arrangements, fantastic music themes, incredible solos etc. It is like watching a great movie, like watching a metal musical!  Max Enix’s “Far From Home” shows what artistic courage and creativity may offer. It stands as a beacon in the musical landscape, offering a unique and unforgettable experience. For sure, a must-listen for those who appreciate the limitless potential of musical expression, an over two hours and a half musical adventure, which will cast a spell on you. That’s nothing short of an artistic recital! Live this instant classic now!
