4 stars We have another ambitious release by Between the Buried and me.

The first song has vocals like if it were an Ayreon symphonic track, accentuated by organ in the background, yet another new territory for the band. After this first candy comes the meat, "Astral body" with a heavy dose of brutality. "Lay Your Ghosts to Rest" is incredible versatile, from the poppy melodic part to long growls. The middle section has a march with death-metal vocals but Hammond in the background, then comes a waltz-like clean section. "Extremophile Elite" reminds me of Haken in the clean parts. At one moment, the band utilizes frenetic death metal speed to magically turn into progressive rock realm. Orientally infused guitar can be heard in the latter part of the track. The short "The black box" is the strongest similarity to Haken up to now. "Bloom" is extremely eclectic and complex with soloing by each member, constant changes. "Silent Flight Parliament" is the climax on that album; it has various highs and downs in terms of intensity. I like the combination is growling and clean vocals at the same time, they are really powerful on entire album, rhough.

Overall, this is yet another well executed album by the band that deserves to be stored in the upper echelon of their discography.
