4 stars OK. You mays say: "How boring! Another super group born to give us 76 minutes of useless music!"

Maybe in this case you may be wrong.

This album shows a fresh kind of prog metal. with powerful riffs, good vocals, excellent bass work and something more...

Nick D'virgilio, who comes from years of prog experience with Spock's Beard, shows us a different interpretation of playng drums in prog metal: his drumming is powerful, very impressive and rich but takes distance from the (IMHO) often useless exageration of double bass drum accents, the 64th fills where is sufficient to work in 16th or maximum 32th, etc..

In my opinion this is the real key of listening to this very good album.

Sometimes you may feel that bass and drums doesn't seem to go ahead together, but after a couple of listenings you will feel accustomized with this.

Another little advice: pay freat attention to the bass player. He's very very interesting!

Good for those who love to listen to something different in prog metal world.

Not for those who are Dream Theater toxically addicted!

What else? I give to this album 3,5 stars
