5 stars This is an interesting album. Although it is a debut album I kind of got the feeling that these guys have been working on their sound for quite a while, maybe it's because their style is so defined throughout the album. Quite a dark album I must say, very gloomy atmospheres and a kind of longing feeling given by the ambiences created in the album. It is quite a good release though, I still haven't heard their second full album but I bet it's much better than this one.

This album seems to have something for every prog-metal fan; the fast riffs (for Dream Theater fans), the dark atmospheres (for TOOL fans), and the technicality (for Pain of Salvation/Dream Theater/LTE fans). Not only do you get good musicianship, but also good singing, I don't know about the lyrics because I normally don't pay attention to them, but I find the singer's voice perfect for this style of music (so don't fret Dream Theater fans that don't like LaBrie and are scared of finding another LaBrie here). The vocalist performs with a lot of emotion.

I think the fans of Pain Of Salvation will find home in this band. I'm sure I liked it. Highly recommended...(my first review of an album, woohooo!)

Tasartir | 5/5 |
