Wow, quite simply, wow! Guitarist Johan Reinholdz can burn up the fretboard with the best of them. His pyrotechnics are impressive to say the least. The guitar sound is part classic rock, part neo-classical-metal. His riffing and solos never sound forced or inappropriate to the music, they fit rather nicely. The rest of the band is very tight and they fit together exceptionally well. There are quite a bit of great guitar / keyboard interplays. They are also quite heavy and do have some similarities to Dream Theater. Thankfully they have enough of their own style as not to sound like a derivitive or copy. In fact, if you liked DT's Train of Thought kind of heavy, then this is your band. They are more proggy than DT was on that album, which is a good thing. For a debut album, this is extremely impressive stuff. It's one of a very few prog-metal debut albums in the last 15 years that hit the ground running, never missing a step. I highly recommend this one to people that really like the prog- metal on the heavy side without forgetting it's prog sensibilities.
