5 stars Writing this review in retrospect of how the last 2 albums were made makes it even more difficult to put this album into a genre. If epic was a genre, then this album would be the most essential piece. The prog meat of this album, in my opinion, is the Velorium Camper series, which includes haunting lyrics and moving breakdowns. Though decidedly more prog than the rest of albums, this album also shows influences from many genres, from the pop-punk anthemic catchiness of Blood Red Summer and A Favor House Atlantic to the post-hardcore rock of the title track and Cuts Marked in the March of Men. The vocal stylings of Claudio are truly a spectacle that put you through emotions ranging from distress to aww in the spectrum of the music and the story that it is conveying. For prog fans that are looking for music with a little extra I recommend In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3, an album which has earned its way into my heart and my top ten albums of all time. Key tracks in this album include IKSSE3 and the Crowing. Key factors in this album that make it outstanding are the perfectly place, yet not overdone leads of Travis Stever, the complex drum and bass parts that help give this band a truly prog feel, and lastly the balls out vocals of Claudio Sancez that are never sub-par and are always filled with emotion. Rush fans should be pleased with the track 2113, a medley that is filled with post-hardcore prog goodness.
