5 stars A stellar album, combining the distorted, evil synthesizer and bass of Horizont's A Portrait of a Boy with a heavily Camel inspired feeling guitar. A stellar album with a beautiful cover. "The Euphrates" is a clear combination of influences and manages to sound unique and new while still having a rich vintage vibe.

The vocals are iffy, but the music far more than makes up for it.

The water sounds at the beginning of "The Euphrates" is also very pleasing and reminds me of a Tarkovsky movie, so I'll give that point to the record as well.

Overall, it's a pleasing blend of Camel's more instrumental pieces, even a little "Snowgoose"-esque, with a heavy backing to drive it forward without making it muddy or sterilized, like I find some prog-metal releases to be. Rich without being overly bombastic. I'd call it one of the best releases of modern progressive, drawing it back to its roots without being plain nostalgia.
