3 stars One this is for sure here: These guys listened to a lot of Pain of Salvation before recording this album! The influence of the swedish band in their composition and music styling is easily figured out. Flowing melodies with complex rhythms is one of the things you can see in both. And sometimes we can see spoken parts just like we find in every PoS album. What i liked in this band, is exactly this Pain of Salvationism, the will to make different music, to experiment, to break the paradigms of the musical scene. This is one of the bands that make me believe that progressive music in general but, more specificaly, Progressive Metal is still in process of evolution and it will achieve a higher status year after year. Still the recording of the album is not luxurious, it does not lower the overall sounding of the album. It maintains a very linear sounding with highlights in the songs "A Search For Numb" and in the suite "The Last Lust". We can't demand a masterpiece from a band that is just on it's debut, but in comparison to it's inspiration Pain of Salvation, they're lightyears behind in the first record.

A good album, once again, that shows a lot of potential, but still, too far from a masterpiece

7/10
