3 stars Interesting but slightly flawed debut album by this US-based band.

The basic sound here is pretty much standard prog metal, heavy guitar riffs played in either riff patterns or drawn out chords; underscored by synths or piano; with relatively calm vocals for verses and more intense vocal performance in the chorus sections.
