What do you think  of this  black/death/power/prog metal band?? I think they should be added. Check out their self entitled album. It's definetly progressive. Anybody else agree?

1. Beyond the Dark Sun 2:38
2. Winter Madness 5:07
3. Sleeping Stars 5:42
4. Battle Against Time 7:03
5. Death and the Healing 7:13
6. Starchild 7:55
7. Beautiful Death 8:16
8. Sadness and Hate 10:16

As you can see, every song on the album is longer than the last.  It's a mostly extreme metal album, but with elements of neo classical power metal and prog metal.
Most of the songs are full of time signature changes. Death and the Healing showcases the unique blend of all those elements. The keyboards play an important role in adding to the cold atmosphere and leads. At moments, you can tell the Yngwie Malmsteen influence in Jarii Maenpaa's guitar playing. If there's an extreme prog metal album section, this album has to be added.

They're a good band. I haven't listened to them in a while, so I don't have a solid perspective of them. I do remember that their album was good...at least for a metal album.

I've heard some samplers of their music and from what I've heard (only about 4 min in total from all albums I think IN TOTAL OF ALL THOSE!) it sounded really interesting... but it is really not enough music to decide on....
