4 stars What a surprise. As you know the last release had a dark-progressive-metal vein but now they decided to dispense with this "dark" and produced a top-class prog-metal cd. Less is sometimes more and so the new orientation proves to be a lucky pull.

I like those soft and melodic vocal lines, appearing this time, by the singer and drummer Nico Knappe more than those Death-Metal vocals, which occured cumulative on the debut album "Swanlike" but were left out totally on this album.

The style is a mixture of Opeth (but without the death metal growls) and Pain of Salvation. The Cd is a concept album, driven by genious lyrics and building up an incredible atmosphere. Through the concept every song comes shallow regarded across as they would be the same but if you listen to the cd more often and if you deeply pay attention to every song you will notice the differences and you will discover the brilliancy of the cd.

I hadn't ever thought that such an amazing piece of work could come from Germany, but as it seems the music suprises me again and again. This Cd and Dark Suns belong to my absolute favourites and I can highly recommend it to anyone out there!
