4 stars Beside another great Polish band Riverside album, released same (2009) year, "Idmen" possibly could stay as another most interesting heavy rock work of the year. But if Riverside recorded great example of vintage progressive metal, Indukti is more experimental and future oriented band.

Complex combination of technical calculated progressive metal sound with symphonic strings/arrangements and heavy prog experimentalism gave us attractive music with many layers.

Even if you can find there many influences, the music sounds original, as no one else played before. OK, I believe vocals there is more question of taste, and not fully what I would like to hear. But common impression is great anywhere.

There are many very controversial reviews for this album. To be honest I don't know ,what is the reason. Even if the music there is not old fashioned straight forward vintage prog metal a-la Dream Theater, the level of experimentalism isn't so high to make this music hardly accessible. From another hand, the sound is enough complex, but melodic, not too much electronics, funky rhythms or hip-hop were added. May be for some this sound looks boring, what makes me wonder.

Anyway, I can compare this album in some sense with my beloved early The Mars Volta albums. Just without chaos, nervous cacophony and hyper-psychedelic sound. With calculated metal sound, some classic symphonic elements and very different vocals added instead.

I can recommend this album as one of the best progressive heavy album of the year 2009.
