4 stars This forgotten and long time ago disbanded group from DENMARK,hit hard the prog metal comunity with TILL BIRTH DO US PART,a very twisted and clever title name!It was in the glory days of SENSORY RECORDS when they signed bands from all over the world ,with a great sense of anticipation ,good taste and inspiration!This album can be considerated a forgotten pearl and has,even today-in 2010-his charm and fascination!It's very tortured prog metal in the vein of PSYCHOTIC WALTZ-especially because the voice of JONAS HERHOLDT FROBERG- amazingly similar to the unique BUDDY LACKEY!he guys are extremely talented and the compositions are very performant,well composed ad balanced-with crunchy riffs and full guitar sound!Maybee the middle tones of the recordings are too present,and the instruments are having a louder display then vocals,but it sounds more metal progressive than progressive metal-which ,in my opinion-it's not the same thing!Most of the songs are midtempo,but we have some double pedals too,diversity being not a strong point for the guys!They have some very atractive and inspired instrumental interventions-when the imagination of the guys are really unleashed,but the melodic liners are- in a way-the same.!JACOB HANSEN-the producer has his own style,we can even recognise his hand on many productions-but in 1999,when this album was released-it was a decent production anyway!Very recomandable for those who like tortured metal songs with a progressive edge,and especially PSYCHOTIC WALLZ and BUDDY LACKEY fans too!4 STARS for an ambitious and intriguing prog metal album!
