Interesting production from this Portuguese act, and a rather good one too.

Vintage prog metal is the foundation for the proceedings, and old Dream Theater fans will recognize the guitar sound used throughout this affair as well. To spice up this affair space-tinged moods are added in now and again, and even a few jazzy segments.

But the dominating aspect of this album are quickly evolving and changing compositions, where quirky riff structures go hand in hand with more atmospheric moments; and the mostly long numbers go from theme to theme in quick succession - revisiting them often enough to get familiar with the differencing moods and atmospheres but still giving the listener more than enough to pay attention too.

There's nothing highly original here though - this is vintage prog metal, albeit more challenging and intricate than most such productions go - but the craftsmanship is solid, and as the band are more concerned in creating atmospheres than showcasing technical skills in the instrumental parts those not fond of endless shredding in their prog metal should have a good reason for checking out this affair.
