4 stars "In Your Multitude" might be the proggiest album this Norwegian band ever did. Khan would later go on to sing for KAMELOT, while Tore Ostby would play axe for ARK. Two very talented guys although the bass and drumming really impress me on this release as well. Love the back cover art on this one. I don't know what it is but it is so moving and beautiful. Some guest keyboards from Trond Nagell-Dahl who also played on tour with them.

"Under A Mourning Star" has such a cool intro as sounds come and go. Here we go ! Vocals a minute in as it settles some but not for long. Ripping guitar 3 1/2 minutes in with organ runs to follow. "Missionary Man" is one of my top three tracks.The riffs are killer on this one.This is just a heavy song with lots of crunch. Great vocals too. A blistering guitar attack 3 minutes in. "Retrospect" opens with an all out assault before it settles and vocals come in. It does get more powerful though with some great guitar fire 2 1/2 minutes in. "Guilt" is another top three tune. It features some guest guitar from producer Tommy Newton. This one is heavy with menacing vocals. Killer sound with the guitar coming in after 2 minutes. "Sanctuary" features acoustic guitar and reserved vocals throughout.

"A Million Gods" is another top three track for me. Check out the drumming and bass after a minute ! Great sound 4 1/2 minutes in and the guitar that follows is incredible as bass and drums continue to impress. A shred-fest late. "Some Wounds" opens with deep bass with outbursts of fury until it's a steady blast. The guitar before 3 1/2 minutes lights it up. "Carnal Comprehension" opens with sounds that build including a good rythmn. The guitar 3 minutes in is outstanding. "Solar Serpent" has a good beat as rough vocals come in. It kicks in around a minute. Contrasts continue. I like the tasteful guitar with synths before 2 minutes. "In Your Multitude" has this laid back intro before a full sound arrives after a minute. Powerful vocals and sound right here. A calm 3 minutes in and check out the guitar solo that goes on and on after 4 minutes.

My version has a bonus track called "Gravity" which is a killer track. A solid 4 star Prog-Metal album.
