Here is a stunning masterpiece that gladly I noticed in metal forums because it has become one of my favourite albums of all time. Started by ex- Negura Bunget members, Sunset in the 12th House's debut offers a wide palette of sounds ranging from echoed guitars in 'Arctic Cascades' to beautiful driving and groovy, eastern-influenced 'Desert's Echaton'. Each song creates a fantastic sonic landscape that one has to experience by oneself. The opener 'Seven Insignia' feels like sailing in a storm, while the third track 'Paraphernalia of Sublimation' takes you into a large cave. Like the cover art suggest, this album feels like going through different parts of the world - and it succeeds in it's task better than any record I have heard. The final track offers the listener much more heavier approach and even some death metal vocals. The drive an energy the final track suggest a path to death or the "final journey".

The production is flawless, the drums are perfectly arranged in each song with high emphasis on groove and support. The guitars create large landscapes with effects. The bass plays the least interesting part, but offers the support required for heavier guitar riffs and low end for cleaner parts.

Insanely good record, definitely for fans of classic prog (Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream) and modern prog metal.
