2 stars Alberto Rigoni offers a mix of fusion and heavy rock sounds on this album which is quite hard to digest. 'Rebirth' is a solo effort basically which includes several guest musicians. The bass work is very dominant here of course, but interestingly enough not only reduced on Rigoni himself. And so this production features a solo but also two bass duets, one with Yves Carbonne, the other shows Michael Manring collaborating. The album opens with Free and Tommy Ermolli nicely varies with hard rock and fusion styled multiple guitars - Gavin Harrison's drum playing attracts attention too.

With Emptiness the project stylistically leaves the selected path, they switch to a straightforward rocking attitude in the vein of Magnum or Evergrey. With All My Forces follows as a prog metal outfit where Ontogeny then returns back to a fusion style. 'Rebirth' is definitely unique as such, and technically flawless without a doubt. However, I took my time, but missing any conceptional clue this still sounds unusual to me - speaking of the compositional aspect rather immature as a matter of fact. Few songs are a pleasant listen, most are plain though and can't thrill me really - 2.5 stars
