3 stars After the 2009 succesful attempt, Abolishing the Obsolete System, by Vishal Jit Singh, his project Amogh Symphony came with a new album at the next year, called Quantum Hack Code. I can see a great maturity development from his debut to this second, and currently (-2013-) last album. The whole album includes narration by Chela Harper (Coal Chamber) before each track, classifying it as a concept work. The girl's narrative voice really fits the "sci-fi briefing" style. Vishal J Singh recorded everything but drums (Jim Richman), and according to the Prog Archives, his self-line-up features guitar, keyboards, bass, programming electronic percussion and background music. If you dare listening to this album, you will feel the same as before, this guy is totally demented (in a good way) into technical music.

Dvorzhetskii's Prophecy features a great cyber mood, fusing heavy and beauty. The feeling into guitar work are deeper than the previous album riffs and solos. The technical and extreme music is here, but the feeling and melodic passages are very interesting, breaking the monotony. The Quantum Barrier Code Interpretation By Mainframe, is a hyper technical track, and the mixing of genres, including funky guitars, are very skilled. The next track is the noisy and shredding Polymorphic Infection: Releasing Proteus. The technical habilities are funny listening but too "heavy metal", you know what I mean. The track has sudden mood changes, and the electronic/futuristic background are cool. X-Karna Activated is very agressive and hyperactive technical track. The bass riffs are very present. The blasting drums slow down at the middle of the song, and an atmospherical groovy part starts, featuring background strings. Cool guitar solo. The Nullification Method - ONI VS Proteus, is the best track until here. The technologic details and changes are freak as hell. The noisy and extreme part turns into a melodic and tasteful passage, with a heavy background and funky guitar tune. The progression of the song continues to a mysterious mood. The track ending includes a short shredding guitar solo. Decoded: Karnosiris, the next track, is very technical, cyberpunk, and has a doom feeling. The electronic side of the track and the changes into the music are very well elaborated, making this one the best track of the whole album. Some narration at the end of the track and more outstanding drums. The Collapse Of Q-Web And Osiris is more like an ending credits song.

Experimental and progressive, Amogh Symphony's second album was a great effort into the Indian extreme music.
