5 stars In Poland you can find many great progressive bands (Riverside, Indukti, Qudiam, Satellie or Votum). Division By Zero is from Poland too and it's one of my favourite progressive metal band. I've enjoed his first album "Tyranny of Therapy" so I was disappointed to wait for second album 3 yeras but... it was worth it!

1. Ignition - nice intro, "door" to the album

2. Independent Harmony - in my opinion the best DbZ's song in history. On the beginning you can hear great guitar riffs but after... Suddenly we have only piano with scary, acute growl "Chaos will come!". Such a great song! The best on the album - very climatic!

3. Wake Me Up - there are some sober moments, there are some heavy moments (death metal). Good song for the gigs.

4. Glass Face - great lyrics, beautiful, emotional solo about 5:10

5. Not for Play - for me - surprise! I've never expected that DbZ can play short, sad ballads! Song isn't very original but on the other hand "Not for Play" is dulcet.

6. Jin & Jang - nice, instrumental song, but weaker than for example Wake me Up or Glass Face, there are some experimental sounds (you can hear some Japanese inspirations)

7. Don't Ask Me - what a great song! Great lyrics, great bass line. Chorus is awesome! Is the song about the conversation between God and death.

8. Intruder - the weakest song on the album, for me: very annoying! You can find in "Intruder" some good moments but... the chorus is maddening! Lyrics are just a bit comic, singer's voice here is like in cabaret. On the background we have woman's voice - new band's idea!

Summary: if you are progressive metal fan you MUST to listen to "Independent Harmony". It's solid, progressive metal album with some death metal influences, singer's voice is brilliant, music is very compact. One of the best strength of this LP are... drums!

Sorry for mistakes ;)
