4 stars Although not my preferred genre admittedly from time to time I do check some stuff which is arising out ot the prog metal scene nevertheless. Well, this EP immediately hit me, I can tell you. What a dynamic workout. Four chaps are responsible for this fireworks, drummer Greg Murphy attracts my attention first and foremost - woaaaaah ... inclusive of bass drum staccato he's partially acting like a killer machine (show me your muscles!!!) ... and additionally cares for the lead vocals.

As for a rough orientation I would say this comes close to 'Dream Theater goes wild' somehow. Not meant as anything chaotic, boundless though,.to make it clear. This evolves like an epic so much the more. You can hear complex, well thought out song structures, featuring a great amount of melody. And their music sounds far away from stagnant overall, expressive and very virtuoso to my ears. Not being a regular band member - during the recording time at least - Nathaniel Rendon cares for the keyboards, often provided with symphonic touch, which shows him contrasting for sure.

This appears very agressive to my ears in total. I'm surprisingly able to enjoy their stuff though. 25 entertaining minutes circa, divided in seven parts which surely are bringing some wind of change to the table. Besides the extraordinarily lively drums tons of shredding guitar riffs are remarkable, however - you will detect some charming restful moments too. That means at least prog metal fans will love this EP, I'm sure. Well, you've got it, chaps. Hope to hear more - highly recommended!
