5 stars Oh good god .. Im glad I was abble to hear this in time (iow: before my death), it was so hard to find something about this band, I think Im the only brazilian to ever hear SGM, since they never released any album down here. What a pity.

Well the sound is CREPPY, its DARK, and it has some heavy ATMOSPHERE. It could easily be rated as some horror film soundtrak, i dont know why, but it gave me this sensation, i dont feel totally confortable while hearing this at night alone in my room. To sound more technical, it has a lot of ambience noises, just like the best prog albums does have. It has a lot of orchestrated stuff, AMAZING vocals, from either Nils and Carla, the backing vocals also rocks. It is also very heavy at times, to tell the truth i don't like this prog metal crap, but SGM metal isnt BORING like Porcupine Tree, its always fresh and creative music, so the guitars here just give a sweet plus to the whole thing. Well, Im just repeating what most of the others reviews already says, so Im stoping here.

I just wish someone could tell me where to find some other bands like this, its so RICH and COMPLEX. Im amazed it dont have that much reviews and ratings, its a sing you must hear it ASAP. SGM is, along wifh The Mars Volta, the best surprise I had since the 70īs golden days.
