4 stars The passion for music cannot be limited by borders and chaos or cosmos is living proof of this. The Polish Australian project is currently made up of guitar virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist Rafal Bowman and singer Joshua Radcliff.

Lead of track Cascading Darkness features a mischievous play between synth and some interesting but pleasant riffs showing a very versatile combination of different elements between them with a mix of melancholic growls and lyrical singing with the two vocal styles being mixed together. The album continues with what is probably my favorite on the album, a song called One Hundred. This song starts out with a calming feeling, with sounds of rain and thunder, this is until the song brings back the magic with ambient synth harmonies infused with some science fiction vibes, extremely melodic guitar lines and a clean vocal. The third song Worlds Apart is a heavier song. The progressive guitar parts give the song a feeling of being worlds apart which is as appropriate as its name. It is really a dense layered and gloomy song with the over-the-top solo providing some melody in the second half. Definitely another highlight of the album. Consumed continues the album with an intensity that is full of positive energy. There's a lot to take in with this song. The song is full of energy and melody as once again Bowman shows his virtuosity as a guitar player while Radcliff provides some growls and some clean vocals that highlight his capabilities as well. The fifth track on the album We Will Not Fail escalates and grows in Intensity as it progresses. The final track of the album is called Asimov. It is an instrumental and the shortest song on the album. This closing track has a very sedate start and a beautiful melodic solo. As an instrumental song it gives you a story to listen to and the changing tempo gives the song a voice. Giving fans of the heavier side of progressive metal something they would definitely appreciate.


Recommended Tracks: Cascading Darkness & One Hundred.
