3 stars The debut album (2000) from a progressive metal band coming from Norway which was rerecorded in 2004 with new vocal in 2004. Musically, it's more towards power metal with straight forward arrangements and basically no progressive element at all. But it does not mean a bad album. In fact the composition is quite solid and the overall performance of the musicians involved in this album is excellent. The lead vocal delivered by Nils K. Rue is excellent and it fits with the music.

The album starts with an ambient created through the sounds of keyboard in long sustain fashion in 'Prelude to Paganism' (1:02) followed with raw guitar riffs that remarks the entrance to the next track 'Caught in a Dream' (6:01) followed with double pedal bass drums work typical of power metal music. The title track 'Infinity Divine' (6:12) enters in faster speed with excellent keyboard solo followed with vocal. While 'Embracing Fear' (5:56) starts off with heavy guitar riffs in energetic mode, it's another excellent track. Having been blasted with high energy tracks the album finally slows down with 'Dawning of the Nemesis' (5:09) which represents a nice ballad with excellent vocal job that reminds me to Michael Kiske of Germany's Helloween. 'Moonlight Pact' is another nice ballad.

Overall, this is a good album that will favor power metal fans. The combine double bass pedal drums, bass guitar, electric guitar and drums makes this album worth listening to. Keep on proggin' ?!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
