4 stars This sophomore release from US duo Invisigoth is a chaotic trip into unique musical landscapes, and not an album it will be easy to get into.

The main reason for this being the structure of the songs, most of them jumping from style to style and segment to segment a multitude of times from start to finish; making it challenging to get a feel for the tunes as such. Dominating traits are layered synths, sometimes symphonic and sometimes cinematic in nature, careful use of guitars to add structure to the soundscape, a multitude of style changes as mentioned; going from prog metal to pop, and even funk and jazz are styles briefly visited. All songs are highly melodic at all times though, and several of them have one or more passages influenced by Eastern music going as a red thread through the album.

This is a chaotic release in many ways, and not a release that will have a mass appeal. Fans of modern experimental rock music, especially those that may also enjoy cinematic music and computer game music, are the ones I'd guess will find this one most appealing.

4 stars Interesting band this Invisigoth, not even remotely close to something like traditional neo prog but definitely prog, of a more modern sort that is. First impressions are they sound like The Mars Volta and even somewhat like Ayreon, both mainly in the vocal department. Musically and compositionwise this is multi influenced, sometimes middle eastern sounding (early in the second part of Dark Highway) , the next moment is suddenly more like RIO avant or jazzy, sometimes heavy with also slight hints to modern neo prog (if this at all exists).

Anyway, very hard to pigeon-hole but certainly worthwhile listening to and exploring if you want something completely different. Not 100% original and innovative maybe but still a breath of fresh air in my opinion. Another advantage is that music like this will keep growing on you because of the challenge due to complexity. Because of the large progressive content rather than my personal liking I will give it four stars.

4 stars While loads of musicianship is demonstrated in this album, it is obvious that Invisigoth's creature has been cooked up in a lab; because there are numerous - daresay diverse - influences burned into its DNA. While the results are melodic, it's often pretty scary to behold. It's harder to say i ... (read more)
