5 stars At the beginning it seems was a temporary project and instead the Daal ​have accomplished the fifth album!!

The music created by Daal could be the perfect bound of the Poe and Lovecraft; also in this opportunity , different guests attend to in rich the various instruments from keyboards, percussion, bass, guitar, and wind instruments.

Is a pleasure to emphasize that the artwork is very much taking care by (Guidoni) by speaking about music contex. The opening "Malleus Maleficarum" shows a different work from the previous, because of the technological and modern sound which could be asphyxiated and that is the dark connotation.

"Elektra..." is a claustrophobic example of rock experiment to remember the pages of king Crimson and Pink Floyd.

The connection with classical music can be see in "Lylith" with the sounding keyboard. Costa dictate the dances with powerful impulses and epic counterbalanced from inserts more sedate but less guitar claims.

A "epic" piece that will not disfigure on Island of King Crimson.

We starting to have a picture of the situation with this sonority that shows at the same time Majestic, elegant, and decadent; that unify all the electrical/electronic with acustic sound of the classic instruments.

Lots of instruments emerge in the suite "The Dance of the Drastic Novel" to date their best piece. Closing the trilogy started on their debut album "Disorganicorigami".

Exotic melody and grandeloquest, sometimes threatening in many facets with the keyboard in a growing load of tension and evocative percussion experimental and avant garde. The duo Costa Guidoni, with the contribute of absolute value musicians the (Always beautiful Tirill Mohn voice guest in the final Inside you).

He gives us one more great work, which the progress succeeds without loosing the experimental features and the research found that was fundamentals of the first album, maintaining a considerable dark component and at the same time becoming even more symphonic.

The Polyhedral Daal have done a mature work and energetic in comparison with the pass one , but continues a good path more and more engaging and intelligent, with which it continues to look ahead.

Looking for sound solution non conventional that against lead to a music fairytale.
