5 stars I'm really glad to see all the positive hype this album is getting. I am new to the review game and it's rare to find the marriage between Classic Prog and Metal like this in 2012. I get tired of all the busy riffing that counterparts of the genre bring nowadays. I was especially disappointed by the Arch Matheos project which had such possibility but was ruined with pretentious odd meter riffs that sound recyled from Awake-era Dream Theater.

Hemina doesn't mess about with anything too technical (and I could imagine this would bring them down at times in some peoples eyes) and you really have to sit it out and let the CD take you away. Sure this album might not be for fans of modern metal who just like to be slammed in the chest, this is Metal at its most artistic. I don't really know any other Progressive bands from Australia other than Unitopia, however I think I must be checking out this band Arcane which is the only band to be trumping them on the archives at the moment.

I have had this on repeat with TMV's new one since I got them. Brilliant stuff!
