4 stars Anubis Gate play, generally, a kind of slowed down power prog metal, in a dense, industrial soundscape. Luckily, they balance the trippiness with clear vocals and catchy choruses. So end result is sort of plodding but catchy at the same time. They also branch out into different metal subgenres, like more melodic (Circustanced, Golden Days) or more hard-hitting in the vein of Symphony X (Desiderio Omnibus, Telltale Eyes). Wish they'd do some non-metal as well. But I think they are at their most original when doing the industrial, alternatingly heavier/softer prog sort of thing. No wonder the album, unusually, starts with the more trippy songs and ends on more accessible. Overall, I think this is more diverse and accessible than the predecessor, The Detached, and almost reaches the level of their Andromeda Unchained.
