Aspiring hope
4 stars Having witnessed a remarkable display of talented features, provided through PA, started a willful desire to participate in Sieges Even's audible ambrosia, delving into exiguous record stores probable to possess the album for emption, only to have it ordered from the said establishments in a vaguely nervous wait. Must say it required a modest scintilla of time to realise those weren't deities playing the respective instrument, though, it came to mind preternatural flairs weren't mandatorily required in edifying skillfully virtuous tunes, as the band writhes an autonomously emanated recognition alien to legend's grandeur. The album itself seems to have been weaved in subtle coherence, amongst the tracks' general connection with the targeted concept ever present, however, some could erroneously define it repetitive through such trait, mainly, perhaps, within guitar and drums manneuver. Nevertheless, bass lines drive artfully along powerfully established percussion to combinations more than worthy of praise; Steffen voraciously reaches a lauditive spot in the group, not only writing pleasantly unique (or so it seems to me) lyrics, bristling with modernly burnous elocution, but hauling sumptuous riffs creatively divergent of monolithic sceneries, consubstantiating strength and melody. On a not as pleasant standard lays Kaiser, whom, despite of demonstrating euphonious capabilities in auditive enjoyment, dithers and wavers frustratingly between threads of encomium and opprobrium (not by any means literally), as he either yields rhythmic harmony, adhering to his fellow musicians, or is balefully susceptible to surrogate someone pertaining to Nibelungen's performance - captious imprecations aside, he is a great vocalist and would work very well with the band, though, vocal notes seem to wistfully deprive him of congruent destinies (projecting an elongated squall, from two-to-three letter words). An intricate creation jubilantly embraced by prog, even in shorter tracks, all of which tend to condense the crafted complexity into properly bespoken congruity.
