4 stars Another epochmaking one for me. Actually this is my first OH.'s creation, that rings my bell. OH. aka Olivia HADJIIOANNOU is a brilliant multi-instrumentalist and composer hailing from Greece ' a dream nation for me. Do hope I will make a Retsina toast with her. ;)

Retsina aside, every instrumental sound component via this whole album is clearly motivated and rigidly synchronized. Guess it would be a tough work for her to direct / mix this material for every single track. No suspicion she's done the hard work full of enthusiasm. And it's interesting she's included in Crossover subgenre in Progarchives ' every listener might have wondered why this album belongs to Crossover, I imagine. Basically she plays deeply and metallically ' she might create such a sound development with strong intention I guess, but the rhythmic basis is not tough for us headbanging and you can hear something catchy here and there. in acceptable melodic lines you should get immersed completely. And percussive footprints are definitely my comfort. Such a hearty seasoning should innovate her soundscape. On the contrary, each sound foundation is not so different from another for you enough to grab variation via her material maybe due to her massive attack to 'metal' but who cares? Her production along with splendid instrumental technique itself can be called progressive, let me say.

Anyway, Xinomavro in Naousa would be better for her deep, heavy soundscape.
