5 stars Oh wow wow, now we're talking about original sounding music boy. "Harvest Aorta" is one of the most pleasant discoveries of this year, really grabbing my heart. I've not listened this once, twice, but instead, four times in a row and a day ago, again. Guess what I'll do tomorrow morning (hehe). Strange thing is that this music reminds me (sometimes) of another E-xxxxx starting artist, Epignosis. Except singing, it's something that you won't find here much (more like never).

A funny thing is that this is not Metal at all, more like, well, I don't know what it is, maybe it would fell under category of Crossover, or even Symphonic (Epignosis is symphonic ? well, then what symphonic means in these two cases, it's complicated). There's no atmosphere we can talk about, it's more like collection of songs related (last epic) with weak linking, but I don't care about these donkey ears, it works and it's the important thing. It's a thrilling album, which means that they can shock without being brutal. Gentle barbaric traits to be said. Some ambient atmospheric (these words are synonymous, aren't they?) going on in the middle of the song.

5(-), but I'm sad that I can't rate higher. I wanted to, but there is too much of time where there's not so interesting music, trying to be "artistic" and like pieces of compositions, but in this, it fails. In other elements, it rocks (prog rocks)

Dedicated to my beloved Mary

EDIT: Still rock, changing rating
