3 stars I've rekindled recently interest in typical prog metal, because of the new bands out there that, while not radically changing the formula, subtly mix up the ingredients and adding a new layer. Well this Horse is why I stop at the boundary of prog metal and noisy American-style alternative and math metal. Listening to this, somehow I'm reminded of the band Zero Hour - that while mastering the technicality fails at the melody, and so relegated to obscurity, - and also Haken for certain vocal inflections. Here you've got your non-linear structures and your changing dynamics, but the whole affair is too noisy and guitar driven - and, with some exceptions, unmelodic one, at that. Vocals also kind of meh. Best songs probably the starter, for its the most melody-driven, the almost instrumental Old Cracks in New Earth (sans the weird chant), with good variation, and Water's Edge, cause its quieter.
