4 stars This album came to me by accident, and i must say that in a first listen, i was totally captivated. The development of songs, with deep lyrics, becomes quite true the history told in the album.

The songs are medium to long duration, with tonality changes and quite elaborate rhythms. Honestly there are no many bands in my country who have reached a debut album of such quality , beyond the technical details, and seriousness.

Isolated incidents is a plain song , although with some progressive touch. Reminds me of a more progressive "Maiden"

Martyr is a track that is growing in intensity, with delicious and crude lyrics , and a grand finale . Growls, grunts, shrieks and clean voices, with killer riffs. I love it.

It had to be done begins as a plaintive ballad, to become a piercing cry. Beautiful and sad lyrics.

Beheading the Hydra is another direct theme, plenty of power and "In Flames" riffs with a brutal chorus.

No way but forward is clearly a masterpiece , progressive 100%. A lot of tonality and rithm changes, seasoned with the best voice and drums lines , plus a magnificent guitar solo.

We must to keep track of this young Spanish group , see what their next step , hopefully forwards.

(Sorry for my english :S)
