This is a very tasty album. But I wouldn't call this Extreme Tech Metal. Maybe Prog Metal Fusion.

The songs on this album are extremely well written, and the virtuosity of the players is never in doubt. I would place the tone of the guitars somewhere between Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson, with the composistion reminiscent of The Dixie Dregs, minus the bluegrass influence, and adding a hefty dollop of metal.

There are no songs that stand out over the others, as each piece draws the listener in, and hosts a wild ride through a mutitude of ever-changing musical ideas, all fitting together perfectly.
