4 stars From the power metal band Eternal Dream, these three musicians were thinking about this new project long time ago. Being inspired by many old and new progressive rock and metal bands, their music still have this own identity. The album starts with a strange and dark song with piano and drums high in the mix. In fact, the production of the whole album is very clear with synths/drums/guitars being clearly mixed. The band has cleverly chosen to put more instrumental parts to the music with occasional vocals in English. A nice addition is the use of harmonica in the song "Being Man" and the flute in some songs. There is some nice balance between the heavy guitar riffs and the delicate keyboards lines. "Hopeless" has a nice crescendo and some irresistible melody with a duel flute/drums. "Song for Ariadne" brings the Hammond sound upfront and a Grimskunk vibe. "Being Man" is a look back to the past with the guitars and this song is different from the rest of the album with plenty of harmonica. The vocals on "Beside Me" are working well with the music while the guitars, the keyboards and the flute have their own time and space to shine.

I didn't find any weak track on this album, and when you enjoy the production and the songwriting you can only, think that this band got some potential for the future. Let's hope for some more releases soon.
