3 stars A nice surprise from Venezuela.

........Although I would not call this album original or fresh. The music is too much based on the US pomp prog sound and the old English bands like Yes and Genesis to be original or even fresh.

The album have a very faltering start with the epos Awaken From Reality which frankly falls flat on it's face. I am not sure what the voyage on this album takes me after listening to that rock'n'grub epos. AOR ? That's a good description of that epos, although it is a failure. But the album thankfully takes of in a majestic flight after this epos and really opens up a symphonic/pomp prog album. The sound is based on tangents, electric guitars, bass, drums and a good vocalist. The band is very competent to pull this album off and there are some really great melody lines along the way.

Original, this album is not. But it should really appeal to any symph prog fan looking for a new band and a new album to indulge themselves in.

3.5 stars
