4 stars Incredibly technical metal. This is not for the faint of heart.

This is a band I very much look forward to following in their budding career. What can I really say? Brutal. Unrelenting. Very talented musicians making very complex music. Stand out tracks are Canada and Transient Exuberance, although this is a challenging and rewarding album through and through. This is may be daunting for some as it is entirely instrumental and perhaps too lacking in melody for some. Strictly for fans of technical metal, but a true gem of that genre.

Not a masterpiece, but a promising album from an up and coming band. 4 stars.
