5 stars The bands' first album (Time Must Have A Stop) seemed to pass by relatively un-noticed by the reviewers here but luckily I bought the album on a personal recommendation. I would describe the music as melodic progressive metal with the sublime vocals typical of many Polish bands of the last decade. Lovers of bands such as Moonrise, Indukti, Riverside and particularly the Swedish band Wolverine will find this music of interest. The essential guitar playing in this genre are interplayed beautifully with the keyboards. The songs flow easily and unlike a lot of metal these days the structure is focused on strong, forceful melody rather than fancy individual musicianship.....and, as such they could easily be catorgorised as neo-prog. This follow up album has equally pleased me......the guitars and keyboards are expertly intertwined with the efficient and often striking, but simple drumming. But the vocals of this band steal the limelight and give the band their very distinctive sound. I would give this band just a shade under 4.5 stars mainly because they have kept to the same formula as their debut album, however don't let that put you really is a wonderful album that sits Votum as a great Polish prog band to keep an eye on.
