5 stars Wow!!!! Why this is in the progmetal categories? I not like metal music in general, but this music is really awesome and challenging!!! It's hard define the style, it's more in the hard prog vein that prog metal; i found just some Dream Theather influencies just for the drum, but the rest is very original. The singer has a strong and strange voice, not in hight picth like you're used to other metal prog bands...but he sing very well and he is very good to modulate his voice in delicate passages as well as in much more heavy tunes. There are nice guitar and keyboards riff and the keys remember a bit Marillion....that meet Kevin Moore of DT. The guitar is very rhytmic and use strange riff derivative from funky...i can hear some Micheal Jackson or Primus influencies...and is often used in a smart way, no ugly metal ugly or sinister armonies. All is really magic...i could define his style fantasy metal, because there are too much original catchy, and melodic ideas...all arranged in a perfect way that prog metal is too much reductive!!!
