3 stars Another good band from the homeland of neo prog.

It is no doubts neo prog is a deriative from symphonic prog, with some added spices. Something it seems like Konchordat has taken to their hearts. Their brand of neo prog has taken a lot from symphonic prog bands like Yes and Genesis. But the sound is still unmistaken neo prog and is based in the 1980s scene. Pendragon is a major influence here.

The music is also pretty heavy at times and that is another neo prog dna profile. Their reliance on the verse-refrain-verse formula at times is also a give away. But there is also a lot of free form symph prog here.

The best song on this album is the Panic Room epic. That is a good piece of symph meets neo. The rest of this album is also very good. I have a bit of a gripe with the 1980s sound and the vocals which I am not a fan of. I am also missing some cracking superb songs here too. But by all means; this is a very good album which all neo prog fans should really check out. This band is onto something and I have put them down on my notepad as a band to follow.

3.5 stars
