4 stars These album is simply wonderfull. The first think that comes in mind is the voice of the singer. Something between Tom Englund from Evergrey (for ex: for freedom) and Russell Allen From Symphony X (for ex: Dove). A mature voice with emotional vibes. Their first album but already a big first step to a prog metal carrier. THe entire album from the first minute to the last one sounds "akashic". The band takes influences from different bands but use them to create their own personnal compositions with their own sound. And it's a damn sound! I think I never have had this impression of maturity of any band about their first album. About the the other musicians, the guitarist do his job. Very good player, not too much notes just the right touch (listen to the intro of Who I am). The drummer is also convenient but I think he could have a better place. More free drum parts would give more interesting prog influences. The drum sound is also a bit too "cavernous" and "drumkit". with just a few louder sound the songs would be more powerfull and intense. But it's only my opinion. Anyway the band is one of the most interesting prog metal band I've heard for months. I recommand them for fans of Evergrey, Symphony x (for the singer's voice), Without Warning, maybe Without Ending or Wastefall.
