Definitely an interesting release from Norway, Thence's first release apparently took eight years to culminate into the end product we see here. I was lucky enough to download this when it was released by the band for promotional purposes - and I must admit, I was impressed. Essentially a two man effort, there are grounds to compare this to Green Carnation's Light of Day, Day of Darkness - in the sense that it is made up of only a single, 57 minute track. But where Green Carnations opus is excessive and powerful post metal, this is much more subdued and meandering ambient progressive metal.

In this regard, it has perhaps a lot more difficulty in retaining the listeners attention, due to periods of peaceful saxophone, lightly strummed guitar and ambience. And that it concludes with an eight minute wind-down reminiscent of Pink Floyd. For the work of two people however,I hope this piece gets the attention it deserves, as it is impressive technically, although for some - I'm certain the daunting length and slow pace in parts will not be well received by those not open to them. But this is prog, and changing tones and textures throughout an epic 57 minute song should be expected.

Besides - it shows great potential for the band, and considering that this ambitious project is their debut, is highly recommended by me.
