4 stars One of the better heavy albums I've heard as of late(the other being from Iranian/Canadian guitarist AGAH BAHARI...which does feature Derek Sherinian and not yet listed on progarchives.com...Google AGAH BAHARI). Anyway...wow! What an opener on this CD in the metal/jazz _Antarctica/Ascension/Primal Eleven_. It's an insane tighly crafted masterpiece reminding one of the heavier parts on Gongzilla's SUFFER(without the vibraphones, of course). Dark and ominous - a 15 minute masterpiece. After this one though, the album takes a bit of u-turn with the Zakk Wylde guitar tracks on _Wings Of Insanity_(Zakk Wylde - a very talented guitarist, but not my cup of tea most of the time). _Frozen By Fire_ and _The Lone Spaniard_ are standard PLANET X-like instrumentals. Very good. The other minor masterpiece here is the title track _Molecular Heinosity_. Derek describes this one as a Yngwie Malmstein/Meshuggah inspired track. Hard to argue that, but you might want to throw in some Jon Lord too! Just amazing...turn it up to 11. The album concludes with _So Far Gone_. A great vocal track done by Zakk Wylde meets Planet X/Stone Temple Pilots, reminding me that perhaps Derek Sherinian and Zakk Wylde should record an entire album of this kind of material to covert the masses. A solid 4 stars.
