4 stars It took a long time to see this music release because the band took a while to get completed. The music is firmly in the style of old Dream Theater with solid melodies, complex time signatures, keyboards and piano lines giving some atmospheric push to the bombastic heavy guitars. The album is very consistent from start to finish with songs that has everything a Progressive Metal want to wish for: a balance between good melodies and good musicianship. If you look for something new in the genre, you will be disappointed, but if you are looking for something in the lines of your favorites Prog Metal bands, you will find complete satisfaction here.

3 stars A new entry in prog metal realm, italians New Horizons with debut Inner dislocation, released in 2018 at italian label Revalve. Well, what we have here is the type of prog metal I like to listen constantly, nice changes in tempo, musicianship is more then ok most of the time, nice vocal parts, in the end a winner to my ears. The keyboards are well made, strong and catchy atmospheres, lots of diffrent layers, piano all is here supported by competent and technical passages, specially in drums and guitars department. The pieces are well developed, from mellow parts to more technical and complex, New Horizons done a good job here. Oscar Nini the vocalist, has that perfect tone for this music and integrated quite well in the overall bands sound. Pieces like Born in the future, Inhuman wrath or the excellent instrumental Evolution where absolutely every musician really shining at their respective instruments, the duelings between guitars and keyboards show great potential in this field. All in all a strong release that will pleases most of the prog metal fans out there, I like it from start to finish and aswell very nice art work and booklet. 3.5 stars for sure, for fans of Dream Theater, Andromeda, maybe in places Royal Hunt , Kamelot or Seventh Wonder among others.
