5 stars This progressive metal band from Chile is one of my best discoveries of the last months in the genre alongside "Magellan". The guys from the exotic country deliver a diversified record full of surprises, experiments and still addicting melodies as well as coherent structures. Even though the production and sound quality is below average, every musician in here has particular skills and delivers the best performance he can. The production is in fact the only negative thing about this record which is otherwise close to perfection. The band tends in general towards a slight power metal sound but never in a cheesy and commercial way and creates some heavy and addicting passages that remind me heavily of "Symphony X". While the band takes bits and pieces from the works of that band which is the only secondary reason whi I took off some points in the end they are still creative and unique enough to convince me.

The band creates epic and dreamy atmospheres and this right on from the exotic opener "Nitroduction" that develops a surprisingly fast track with an amazing chorus to the great final piano or keyboard solo which is "Schizophrenia" that is full of empathy for the song's topic. It really is a shame that a band of such a high quality has not gotten one single review or any kind of attention on this site and I feel honoured to change this and help to spread the word about those guys. Every track is epic and filled with passion and atmosphere. My favourite tracks might be the very complete and freshly diversified tracks which are the dark and mean "Face The World" and the hectically arranged but amazing "Two Faces" which is one of the most gripping instrumental tracks of the genre I have ever heard. But I could honestly almost mention any song of this record.

The album really should please to any fan of progressive metal as there is no single filler to find and the instrumental songs are as gripping as the vocal tracks. I will try to purchase a rare to find original copy of this record and invite you to do the same thing if you are convinced by what you hear. This record is really worth to do some research and pay a good price for it. I will now listen to the other albums of the band and look forward to discover more.
