2 stars Progressive?, I don't really think so, sounds more like modern angsty metal to me.

What can I say, i was bitterly, bitterly disappointed by this, I had heard comparisons to bands like Ulver and it immediately piqued my interest being of the black metal persuasion and being included in the archives I thought something had to be good here. Alas it was not to be, what we have here are the angsty metalcore type vocals that plague modern metal, cheesy melodic singing set to a vaguely black metal background with some organ tacked on randomly at the end which doesn't fit at all.

If you're a prog metal fan first you may enjoy this, if you're an extreme metal fan more than a prog metal fan then you should probably steer clear as this really isn't for you.
