4 stars Yeah! Fifth Deus Ex Machina studio album just confirm how great and innovative is this italian band!

As the previous DeM albums, this one is full of complex rhythms, surprising solos, solid arrangements and of course, the powerful voice od Alberto Piras. All these elements build a consistent album, fulll of extraordinary jazz-rock fusion or dark proggy sections. I agree with Prognut review: Dem "is going to be one of those classics in the future".

Many highlights on this album and many memorable moments to play again and again, starting with the almost folk/fusion intro of Convolutus a song which suddenly turns into a "classic" DeM song, full of complexities and surprising changes. Rhinoceros starts with a dark keyboard section that turns into a syncopated rhythmical background leaded by Piras vocals and several guitar and keyboard solos. Uomo del Futuro Passato is another great song marked with the classic DeM style and some nice jazzy sections a la Mahavishnu. The beautiful acoustic Olim Sol Rogavit Terram I is a powerful and solid piece of music... At last, the great violin solo of Luce sometimes simple sometimes so complex but always beautiful and softly dark...

No doubt, another great album of DeM. Don't miss the chance to hear it or buy it, you wouldn't be dissapointed. A particular and awsoem prog style that you will love immdiatly!
