4 stars Metallic fusion with post-rock touches. The heaviness comes rather not from the tone of the guitars but density of sound and business of the rhythm section, that I think impresses nor less or even more than guitars. Those who think that instrumental metal music is about speed and emotionless showboating (or boring) would be pleasantly surprised. Its not easy listening or overly melodic by any means, but the band actually creates some coherent soundscapes using repeated musical motifs from mysterious to more excitable. Compositions are a mix between droning and some sweet soloing - sax included!, - although sometimes I wish they'd cut down on the droning or song lengths.
