4 stars Strong debut album from this Swiss ensemble. There aren't too many bands that manage to explore relatively unexplored territories as far as progressive metal goes, and it is refreshing whenever you encounter an act doing just that.

In this case we're served music by a band that know their grunge, indie rock and their post rock, with riff patterns and wandering guitar themes placed on top of dampened, textured guitar cascades as their speciality. Short compositions featuring rather standard verse, chorus and bridge segments are the vehicles for this stylistic venture, and with catchy choruses and a focus on melody this is also a somewhat mainstream-oriented production.

It's a good album though, and one that should interest fans of sophisticated metal with a distinct mainstream orientation.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
