5 stars Another good progressive Metal band, my top 10 favourite to be precise!!!

"Beginnings" good guitar riffs to headbang too!!!, keyboards provide a mellow sounds to give it a nice effect, flows in with "Ending Theme" with simplished guitar riffs,distorted and heavy guitar works 5/5!!!

"Fandango" opens up with symphonic and space rock elements, the lead singer does a hell of a screaming sound (wow!!) 4/5!!.

"A Trace Of Blood" has excellent guitar solos and excellent background riffs, 4/5!!!

"This Heart Of Mine" is a mellow song to start with (sigh!!!), but the rock n roll soon kicks in and with a guitar solo but mellow again, a good love song with sad concequences 4/5!!1

"Undertow" is like a ballad, and is a simple constructed song, with dark elements included, good guitaring with cool screaming vocal (a essential element in prog metal!!!) 4/5!!!

"Rope Ends" is another depressing song with an odd intro all instruments play at the same time, the song is about a mother commiting suicide on a few occasions, a nice song 5/5!!!

"Chain Sling" a catchy number with guitars as an intro, and is a must hear for all prog rock fans, 5/5!!!

"Dryad Of The Woods" is softer track arranged well with acoustic intruments and has a lot of piano works, not a very good track - reasonably average 3/5!!

"Remedy Lane" starts with a short synthesizer played weirdly, and cool guitar works, weird drumming work and the atmosphere works nicely with the next track, 4/5!!!

"Waking Every God" is a fast tempo track and is an excellent metal track!!!,and is the lushest track on the album, 5/5!!!

"Second Love" is a sad mellow love song, and is a poor track, this is a bad PoS track, the guitar is good but a dissapointing ballad, 1/5!!!

"Beyond The Pale" is a better track than the privious one and sums the album up!!!, a strange repeating guitar lasting a minute, with dark vocals, then a heavy electric guitar kick in with symphonic riffs and some growls, and a greter track too, 4/5!!!

A strong recommended complex concept album with strong despressing songwriting, and is essential for the modern progressive rock listener!!

100% recommended, 10/10!!!
