There are some definite ties to the Dream Theater tribute band that these guys evolved from. Some of the cuts sound like they could have been from the DT Awake sessions. Having said that, I definitely feel that this band has a great future. Song writing is strong and the musicianship is superb. Highly recommend to anyone that is a DT fan or DGM, Pagan's Mind, or Circus Maximus, or if you just want to hear good Italian metal. If you like this release, their next attempt, From Within, is also excellent, however to me, it is more straight power/melodic metal than this collection.
