5 stars Atm0sfear (is this how they pronounce themselves?) has succeeded, while staying within the stylistic confines of Dream Theater-style pompous prog metal, to nevertheless create something original. Tempos are mostly slow, groove is deep, and production spacious - but don't let the song length and titles (Loss of hope, Spiral of Pain) mislead you into thinking this is some kind of a funeral doom album. In fact, it is best thought of as Dream Theater-like - with stellar instrumentation and a crooner of a vocalist - but played in slow-mo and without those pesky thrash and power metalisms. Special mention, as I've said, goes to the vocalist - who is good, like, Queensryche's Geoff Tate good, - but also lyrics, often an afterthought in prog metal. Too bad the band is so obscure I couldn't find the texts. But sound thoughtful enough.
