4 stars Fantastic debut album of one of the most interesting and challenging new Brit bands in today's music!It's something like a fresh breath to listen this kind of music,made with so much passion and belief!First of all the eteheric femele vocals can be discouraging or intriguing for some prog metal fans,but let me say to you that the Hungarian JULIE KISS can really sing!The musical stile of TO-MERA is an agressive prog metal,with massive riffs and many breaks,chops,changing of rhythms!The diversity and multitude of ideas expressed by the guys is really stunning!Sometimes I feel that they have to many ideas in pocket and the will to express them in the same song!It's really dense and tortured sometimes-but the technical level is astonishing!In the same song we can hear massive pure metal riffs,then an abyssal change into jazzy rhythms,then trash metal pure and ferocious-all in a very intelligent amalgam-100 % metallic!The production is very good-each instrument sounds perfect and the balance between the angelic voice of Julie and the ferocious music behind is a very catchy combination!Also,we have to mention that TRANSCEDENTAL is a debut album-so that's even more impressive and stunning!They have a huge potential and I am sure the future looks bright for this innovators in music,in a way!If we try to compare TO-MERA's music...the only idea that is crossing my mind is the American band AGHORA!But TO-MERA is more adventurous,diverse and technical and the mystical side of AGHORA is gone here!4.5 STARS for a stunning debut album!
