4 stars I haven't heard this album many times and in adequate depth(which is inexcusable for progressive listeners)but because I have focused oon some of their previous works such as Andromeda Unchained and Purification I can make some comparisons. This one is much as its predecessor but with an evolution in their sound. First of all, I totally agree with the continue of their cooperation with Jacob Hansen in vocals, who is better than the first singer. Secondly, the music is more heavy and aggressive in parts but without lacking complexity and progression. Following the path they established,they keep the oriental-'Egyptian' elements in their music which renders it more interesting. I alwas like songs with east touches like 'home' from Dream Theater, 'Egypt' from Symphony X etc. And the song 'Pyramids' is no exception to the rule. I would like also to point that the power elements that their music contains are not cheesy and imbecilic happy(like power metal is now)and they fit with the rest music. In general,all the album is very interesting and if you like progressive metal you ought to give it a chance. However, I will select some tracks,the 'hits' of this album: Pyramids,Dodecahedron,Bloodoath,Options-Going nowhere and Find a way(or make one). We can expect great things in the future if this band earns the recognition it deserves(come on guys, Mastodon increased their reputation vastly, can't Anubis Gate make it?).
