The songs join the very best elements of classical, rock, metal and progressive. The album has an incredible sense of melodic balance. The result is a highly sophisticated and rich sounding music.

4 stars A must have for brazilian progressive rock fans. The review from Tarcisio Moura is an excellent opinion on this album! Prog metal, with influences from Dream Theater, Symphony X and maybe Savatage last albums and Circle II Circle. Most lyrics are about religion, more specifically about God and his mighty omnipresence. Anyway this is not a Christian rock or metal band! Nice quality lyrics influenced by faith, but not pushing us to religion and doctrines. The songs themes are not boring and the track list is very well crafted, it is impossible to turn off once you listen to the first track. The album will never let you tired. At last, it is not easy to find nowadays, one may look at brazilian HELLION catalogue for it. i will give it 4 stars, but prog metal fans may rank it with 5!

4 stars Very fine prog metal band from Brazil, founded by the virtuoso guitar player Marcos De Ros (who has some instrumental solo albums released under his own name). The main reference is Symphony X, specially for the vocals who bears a curious similairity to Russel Allen´s . But don´t worry, they have their very own sound. Fortunatly De Ros is NOT one of those musicians who wants to steel the show all the time. This is really a team efford and Í was glad to find that all the band members are equally skillful and able to give everyone room to shine. But really the star of the show is De ros, with his tasteful, creative guitar breaks and solos. He never overplays, which is a rare quality in a man with so much technique.

I was quite surprised at the time by the production, which is very good even for today´s standards. The tracklist is smooth, the music powerful and the songs have some intesresting variations. If you´re into this style of music give it a try. You won´t be disappointed.

Review by Benjamin_Breeg

4 stars If you want to find another prog masterpiece to worship everyday before sleeping, i suggest you to not get into Akashic. But if you want to listen to a music that sounds very pleasant to your ears, this is what you're looking for. Akashic is a new revelation in brazilian metal scene, that captured me in the first try. The musicianship is very good, and there isn't virtuosity abuses that can make the stuff boring at some points. Its very direct music, without intros, huge solos, and progressive suites(the longest track is about 7 minutes). The music has feeling and catchy choruses, although it doesn't sound not even a bit like pop music. The lyrics explore the fields of love, relationships and problems of the modern life.

I can't classify this as a Prog Masterpiece because it is really not, but i truly recommend this album and this band. I really believe that this band can reach the progressive mainstream if it keeps evolving along the years.

8/10

4 stars These album is simply wonderfull. The first think that comes in mind is the voice of the singer. Something between Tom Englund from Evergrey (for ex: for freedom) and Russell Allen From Symphony X (for ex: Dove). A mature voice with emotional vibes. Their first album but already a big first step to a prog metal carrier. THe entire album from the first minute to the last one sounds "akashic". The band takes influences from different bands but use them to create their own personnal compositions with their own sound. And it's a damn sound! I think I never have had this impression of maturity of any band about their first album. About the the other musicians, the guitarist do his job. Very good player, not too much notes just the right touch (listen to the intro of Who I am). The drummer is also convenient but I think he could have a better place. More free drum parts would give more interesting prog influences. The drum sound is also a bit too "cavernous" and "drumkit". with just a few louder sound the songs would be more powerfull and intense. But it's only my opinion. Anyway the band is one of the most interesting prog metal band I've heard for months. I recommand them for fans of Evergrey, Symphony x (for the singer's voice), Without Warning, maybe Without Ending or Wastefall.
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
