5 stars The best album of 2006 for me, and one of the bests ever. Chef d´oeuvre not only in progressive metal, but in all genres.

To the reasons yet written I will add the enormous complexity of the lyrics, as you can see in:

- The relationship between the words "Ferrarius Verbero Aestus Ferratilis", that open the album, and the myth of Hephaestus, god of the smiths and of everything else which requires fire for working.

- The references to the "sleeping beaty", a symbol of the unconscious.

- The constant reference to ancient EMBLEMES, once in Latin tongue ("Bilingues Cavendi": One Should Beware Of The Double-tongued), and other times in English: "Die rather than betray trust", "He who exalts himself will be humbled", "the fruit of sin is bitter", "When struck I rise".

- The words "6 to 1, Much unless in medical terms of mathematics" (I think it is a play on words with "sextuple" and "sex-tuple").

- In general, the conception of this work translates to music de idea of Milorad Pavic´s Dictionary of the Khazars, a novel that can red from any page and in any direction, like a puzzle that the reader must complete.

Five stars.
