4 stars Improvement on all fields

DGM is a band that always seems to be a bit indecisive. Either they seem to be a bit too pop- influenced with their melodies, or they tend to focus too much on technicality.

Well... No More. For the first time DGM seems to live up to their potential. The album is heavier all over then before. Their melodies pops up from my unconscious as I catch myself humming to Hereafter while at work. And the best thing of all is how they have managed to fuse melody and technical performance on this album. Before FrAme, they were an okay band. Now, I would mention them along some of the best progressive power metal bands out there. Like Symphony X, Pagans Mind and Eldritch. The singer has suddenly also become a favorite as he has evolved a more powerful style. I definitely prefer him before the singers of Pagans Mind and Eldritch. Still has a bit to go, before he reaches the power of Russell Allen though.

The production also deserves to be mentioned. It is powerful and detailed as before, but I would have to say that this one has raised the bar for DGM production wise as well.

Kudos to DGM for their improvement. And for those of you who got scared away by their last dreadful effort Different Shapes. Listen to Hereafter from FrAme and realize that DGM has risen to the occasion and made their best album to this date.
