5 stars I believe I just heard another masterpiece. That is if you are prog metal minded and like it pretty rough. Because that's what we are talking about here. Tight compositions and musicianship is the deal with this album. I must say this is my first encounter with this band and I heard them thanks to the streamtrack Snowbound which was already very impressive. Impressive enough to buy the album and I was very pleased to find out it wasn't actually a single stand out case with the streamtrack because when I played the whole album last week for the first time I was already blown away by the whole thing but as so often happens when you play it for the second time it can be really disappointing sometimes because of the high expectations. This time it isn't, it's at least as good as with the first listen and the strength lies in the second half of the album. From the 9th track (This white storm through my mind!) until the end it's a treat of the one fantastic song after the other.

The sound and the production are top notch, guitar solos are great and present all the time and the consistancy is surprising, there are hardly any fillers on this album. I mean, the second half is better and is worth the 5 stars totally but that doesn't mean the first 8 tracks are much less or disappointing. It's more that it gets better and better as the album goes on. What an achievement !

Eventhough I'm very frugal with my 5 starratings I can't be sparing this time. Due to the overall performance I can only give 5 for this. I hope they keep up the good work in the future and continue the musical road they took here.
