Progressive Metal

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Boasting much, much better production and overall songwriting than debut "Time Must Have A Stop', Votum's 'Metafiction' is about as good as it gets for straightforward progressive metal. Vast, spacious and mellower than Riverside, there is some amazingly tasteful guitar work on display here, along with a lead vocalist who...*gasp*...doesn't sound like everyone else! Holy monkeycrabs!!!!!

Basically, I find it difficult to have qualms with a progressive metal album that knows that less is more. The noticeable lack of cheesy keyboards solos is also a plus, and these factors and more contribute to my overall impression that this may be among the best that came out in the progressive metal world in 2009.

A shame, then, that nobody else has bothered to find out this truth.
