2 stars Prog metal and techno/trance don't work really. Despite the good intentions of the band to create something of new in this subgenre this album don't work for me. It's not enough to add some new acid synth effect or phased electronic drum to create a masterpiece. Some song have an industrial EBM feeling in the vein of Absurd Minds or the much commercial Marylin Manson, but despite these bands the singer is grundge oriented with weak teatrical moments.

The big problem is that all the songs and above all the longer epic tracks doesn't flow naturally, leaving the listener disoriented and frustated. There aren't any solo to remember because the guitar is busy to create noise. Sometime there are good keyboards and mellow passage with good and symphonic melodies, and the singer sing well in the much melancholic moments like in the "Richelieu's Prayer 2012" but these aren't so frequent, so i should give to this just 2 stars. Recomend just to fans of Marylin Manson or industrial metal that would try something to different
