From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Essential progressive metal album - 4.5 stars. The intricate melodies flow between every track, and there is an emotional intensity that I have yet to hear matched by any progressive bands. Madsword's songs are filled with delicate, transcendental and soulful melodies that set a hypnotic ambience similar to that of AYREON. Madsword definitely do not encompass all aspects of progressive rock as religiously as bands like DREAM THEATER and ANGRA - the progressive emphasis is on the atmosphere and beauty in the simplicity of sweet mystic guitar tones, and underpinning symphonic keyboards. 'Darkened Rooms' , 'Time in the Ice' and 'Mind's Bug' are my favourite tracks, each displaying pure progressive melodic intricacy. Prog metal without the clutter.
