5 stars Mind blowing album!I was captured by the first sound on Fantasy track...great guitar riff and awesome production, and after a while the majestic vocals are coming to fill the space with power and life.Yes it's djent-like,but not in the way of exhausting your ears by using multi rhythm equations upon the same riff,but as a path of composing with diversity and inspiration.This djentish orientation in combination with the amazing and melodic vocal lines,great guitar playing and all of the above been engulfed by genuine prog metal surprises,make this album brilliant.In Venus the discrete use of keys is full of meaning without covering the real feel of heavy sound.There are also here jazz-fusion influences with beautiful use of sax and trumpet themes,giving a special and diverse note to the overall of the album.This element of surprise,which for me is the cornerstone of Prog metal genre seems to be easily,almost without any effort,been handled, by Hemina.And yes ,once more the vocals(best by far for many years)captivate the listener and make Venus the closest thing to a masterpiece these days.Prog metal still lives in 2016!Probably,best album of the year.Give this true gem the value it worths.
