4 stars I've read some of others' reviews of this album from Indukti and apparently this is a "love or hate" piece of music. I tend more on the "love" side and, will say it straight away, I would give it with no doubt the 5 star "masterpiece of prog" if I were an expert of contemporary prog music.

In any case, I became aware of Indukti since I recognized Marius Duzsa's voice in one song, and being a great fun of Riverside, I thought it was a new song of theirs, instead, I discovered it was another band, in fact named "Indukti". Did some more search, found the Album, "S.U.S.A.R" bought it, and at that point I fell in love for Indukti too. But the real shock came once I listened to Idmen... I am not a metal fun, neither dark, let alone power or death metal, but do appreciate some of prog-metal bands' music, like Opeth, Baroness and few others. And, of course, I wouldnt label Tool music as "metal" either, it's a bit "prog-metal" to my ears, but more "Toolian". Turning back to Idmen, I was not looking for any metal-something, however once listening the cd I was struck with their power and executing skills of these guys, but what really caught me is their capabilities to mix together some kind of power metal with beautiful melodies, at times even romantic. I do really like coupling acoustic instruments as the violin, the guitar or the trumpet, together with a tremendous rhythmic section, particularly evident in track #5, "Indukted", to me the best of the album. Also, I like very much Sansara (#1), Tusan Homichi Tuvota (#2), and Ninth Wave (#8) with its beautiful trumpet, very moving emotionally, yet very rock (!) There is a clear inspiration from Tool: as many have noted the vocalist in track #7 clearly recalls Maynard J. Keenan of Tool, but the music still is "Indukti" Some tracks are a bit weak, like track # 6 "Aemaet", a bit too long and with no particular direction. But other songs I mentioned above largely compensate these few weaknesses. My bad I got this album in my hands only 2 weeks ago, while it was published in 2009.... well, better later than never! To conclude on this Indukti's cd, I'd say every progger should have it in his/her music library. A must of contemporary prog-metal.
