4 stars Intriguing release by the US-based one-man orchestra. How to describe it is another thing entirely though.

Synths and keyboards are dominating throughout; indeed - I get the impression that all instruments are emulated by synths in this production; although I may be mistaken there it sounds like it; and as such this production is comparable to an act like Soniq Theater.

Dramatic and atmospheric themes and parts are mixed in rather compelling compositions; intense melodies and at times highly nuanced sonic textures are served; most times with many layers of keyboards and synths forming the backdrop as well as constituting to the main melody line which in most cases is carried by the guitar (real or emulated). Rather symphonic, in other words.

A very sharp drum sound and vocals slightly lacking in delivery (as well as not always well placed in the mix) are the main weak elements of this production. It is a highly compelling work though, despite those weaknesses.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
