5 stars Wtf, who had given it 1-star ratings? Are you nutz? You're facing the most wonderful album to bereleased this year so far (guess so), it's free-downloadable via band's website, and you dare not to like it? What's wrong with you, mr. Anonymous?

On a serious note: I absolutely love it. I've been waitng for 4 or 5 years for a new motW stuff (since they're honoured to be featured in my lastfm top-10 list, you may guess how much I like them), and I was enormously excited when I knew motW got back together again! And they're not only recording the old stuff but also writing a new one! Another hot news was actually the album's release: free and CD-less, dare I say. Screw you, whiny Radiokid, we do know what the internets is!!! (Sorry if that was rude, it's a joke)

So, I turned the album on. And on, and on, and on, and it was playing in my player/PC/head for months. It's like 2008's KAYO DOT meets classic motW, but without these cheesy metal cliches; sometimes you feel like guys are ready to burst with a blastbeat or a guitar solo shred, but no, get your another Zorny passage, listener! It's like Post-Metal with "metal" put out from it. I'd love to say this is what Post-Music should sound like, but that sounds snobby, and I beg pardon. To be short, "Laboratories Of The Invisible World" is the best motW epic ever written, and some bits of the album's music are sooooo stunningly beautiful, I simply cannot believe it's created by humans!

You've missed it? Prepare 90 mbs of free space on your PC and enter band's website. Otherwise you'll miss the most balanced and tiny album released this year, and don't blame me then for not warning you!
