4 stars Although not prog, this is still great metal, with a monstrous guitar duo.

In Search of Truth is a concept album, as I'm pretty sure you already know. Each song is magnificent and a bit somber. The artwork really accentuates the music and creates an atmosphere that's very dark. Great album to listen to very late at night. Excellent musicianship from Tom Englund and Henrik Danhage. The two being one of the best present duo's today in metal. I don't consider Evergrey prog metal although there are elements (look for the instrumental focused part of "The Masterplan"). They are, however, a great band with a great vocalist. Tom's voice shreds with genuine emotion and soul. "Rulers of the Mind" is such a great song with good surprises and a killer theme. The last 3 tracks are great, but took a few listens to get. Be patient with this album, it's very rewarding and enjoyable. Great melodies, hooks and power. They're also an excellent live band. Never have I witnessed a relatively unknown opening act receive so much applause and support.

Highlights are: "The Masterplan," "Rulers of the Mind," "Mark of the Triangle," and "Dark Waters."
