4 stars Pain of salvation clone? Absolutely NOOO... The first foretaste of this band gave me an image that the vocal is putting Daniel's picture in front of him while singing..But when I dif deep more into the album I began to discover his own characteristics and personality, And the results were an ocean of feelings, a seas of emotions combined with inexhaustible volcano of power that will blow your mind away..

The dramatic atmosphere are always a mark of Wastefall sound and you will not miss it in Self Exile, the album ranging from the mellowest part to the heaviest complex riffs with the incredible vocal melodies that usually cause shivers through my brains.. Versatile time signature, still solid and well written, and from time to time you can hear the keyboards interruptions that enrich the whole scene and adds a salt to the meal...

It's difficult to chose best songs cause the album literally is a huge dramatic work that you can't turn your concentration away for a second otherwise, you will lose a moment of pleasure certainly, but just to highlight, E.Y.E, dance of descent and sleepwalk are the best and closest songs to me..

I urge any prog metal fans whom are searching for advance, unique and talented progressive music to give an ear to those Greek band..

My final mrak will be 4 stars easily earned and Let us all pray for a quick reunion after the split in 2007...
