4 stars A nice and solid progressive metal album from the lesser-known British band The HAARP Machine. Unlike many extreme metal bands which like very much simply to follow, let's say, Atheist or Opeth, The HAARP Machine are developing their unique style, not really akin to any other existing band (though fans of Cynic and Atheist should be pleased with this record).

'Disclosure' consists of relatively short songs (with only one track longer than six minutes) and lasts for just 36 minutes, which is not that much by today's standards. Anyway, even with pretty short length The HAARP Machine provide us an impressive journey through heavy riffs, oriental motifs with usage of unusual musical instruments suach as sitar, both rough growled and clean vocals.

Despite of its heaviness and technical leanings, this album is still pretty melodic and memorable even after the first listen.

8/10 for a promising debut.
