3 stars So, this band had entered my radar almost by accident and I must say that it impressed me with this album (especially because they have only a few listeners on Spotify). The music here is a mix of progressive rock with sections of heavy metal/heavy-prog, the first thing that got my attention is their talent to create strong choruses in the songs, the vocalist sings in a good emotional tone and makes the energy very high, this could be exemplified in songs like "La Bestia" and "Dieciséis Lirios de Eternidad".

The instrumental is "ok" most of the time, the majority of the compositions are not incredible, but there are some segments that are highlighted in the record. Various keyboard solos are very well executed and the bass is probably the most notable part, it always fits well in the songs and helps to harmonize the other instruments. The guitar solos are good but not very incredible or memorable. Sometimes a saxophone or flute enters the tracks and I must say it's the most competently composed part.

I feel the interest of the band to create a variation inside their album and is very admirable when it's used with their strong traits that produce epic and energetic songs, something that is present during most of the album but sometimes just makes it more tiring (especially the two instrumental tracks, which I find to be pretty uninspired).

Overall the band creates a solid record, it resembles other works but not enough to remove the individuality of the group, some problems make the album quality not awesome but is still a good find and can please the ears of the ones that are into "early progressive" and want some "heavy metal flavor" in it. 3 Stars
