Prog Reviewer
4 stars Well, three very positive reviews on our site for this debut from Bulgarian Pantommind. That causes high expectations of course and I have to say this Balkan prog metalband delivers clearly here. Excellent vocals that remind me of Pagan's Mind though a little lower I'd say. And the vocals are not the only positive thing about Pantommind.

The instrumental handling and sort of compositions are of the same level as my previous discovery Cloudscape. This means also excellent and even the production is very good. Hard to find points of criticism; personally I love epics and these are not to be found on this release nor are any true highlights or stand out songs. On the other hand there aren't any weak tracks either, even the shorter songs are very good.

The only right outcome is going to be 4 stars for me but rather rounded down than up, some 4,25 I would say. It's a pity they made just one follow up at this point and I think I will try to find it somewhere. For sure this band deserves more attention from prog metal fans. Highly recommended.
