How can I describe my feelings after listening three times to this monumental 2 hours of music by this band coming from nowhere and playing progressive metal that shows influences of Dream Theater in many places, but also Opeth, Enrico Morricone , Deep Purple, Therion in specific passages, because the band let his music take many twists, turnarounds and styles that include a spice of Jazz, Reggae, symphonic with opera voices, soundtrack music and techno with ambient sounds. There are plenty of voices nuances with male and female vocals; sometimes it's not very enjoyable for the ears, but that is expected in the metal genre. But what is the most impressive instrumental performance as the musicianship goes, is the work of the guitars, which goes from gentle acoustic and classical sound to heavier tones that are sometimes very original. The songs structures brings many rhythms changes, stop and go that make it's impossible to predict in what style the song will go. Sometimes, I had the impression that I was listening to many bands with this 2 hours of music, because the songs have different atmosphere and not only many twists in the same song, like the two epics of 20 minutes. If the guitars are dominant here, there are some nice keyboards breaks that could have been more exploited here, and in a couple of very inspirational passages I would have prefer to see the band stretch it out a bit longer. Like I said earlier, the vocals are diverse, from clean to death with a bit of narration, but not too present to let some long instrumental breaks shine throughout the CD. The diversity of the style of progressive metal and the diversity of atmosphere we have here makes these 2 hours of music enjoyable from start to finish. From the aggression of the metal, through the retro sound of the classical rock to the modern and ambient sounds, the listener goes to a long journey full of surprises along the way. This is the best free digital release you can find...
