5 stars Wonderful album, more than two hours of stunning music that have passed as if they were a few minutes. A concept album divided by two parts: BOOK OF EQUINOX and BOOK OF SOLSTICE. You can download it for free on Bandcamp. Lyrics:

BOOK OF EQUINOX has major variety as much as heavy parts and mellow parts, going from opera to electronic parts, a little fandango, jazz, piano jazz, folk music, Egyptian music and even a part that sounds like carnival music followed by a pleasant reggae, after that, a ''wild music'' that makes you feel like in a jungle near a native tribe or something... Ending the book with the longest song of the album called ''Morphosis'' the typical prog metal/rock music with a lot of variety vocals and instrumental, remembering a mix between DT, Transatlantic and Steven Wilson.

BOOK OF SOLSTICE gets a little colder and colorless but still has variety with unusual rhythms and electronic parts that makes it more obscure. The song called ''Shades under a City Lamppost'' is one of my favorites, an atmospherical/ambient music that begins dark and growing some colors with the time, but sad colors, remembering me of Wintersun (TIME I), ending with a beautiful sad piano introducing the next song; a beautiful keyboard work and melodies that makes the moon cry, growing with the songs, stars become brighter. S!urm is more colored than other songs of the book with a nice rapmetal part. T.I.M.E. (Part 3: The Sign on the Wall) is my favorite song of the entire album, it begins with the sound of rain and a man writing a letter following a beautiful mellow song with acoustic guitar, after this is pure magic, closing with golden key ''Epilogue'' is a magical winter's majesty that gets stronger in your heart, pure beauty.

Sounds like a mix of jazzy parts and electronic music and a little opera (if can I say that), with some strong melodies and pure technical weight of prog metal. The vocals should be better equalized and the music has some mixing errors. It's like Porcupine Tree in its Space Rock times had found Opeth, Transatlantic and something more. It begins amazing and ends amazing, a perfect debut album! Hope they keep doing the awesome job. It was a surprise. (4.51 stars)
