4 stars Third time is the charm they say. And although I'm not familiar with the first two releases from this German trio, I was certainly charmed by their third release.

Although not a constant feature, the heavy use of dark and grim sounding guitars is what I will remember best of this album. That particular sound is so strong and special that it has made a lasting impression. Combining that guitar sound with mellow passages, sometimes fragile and sometimes epic guitar synths added, some jazz-tinged atmospheres and excellent percussion, drums and bass work makes for an interesting and fascinating journey in a musical landscape described by the band as jazz metal.

And this CD will probably appeal to most that think instrumental jazz metal sounds like music it's worth checking out.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
