4 stars Intriguing debut from this Moldovan act.

On these 11 instrumentals they explore a contrasting musical landscape, where the guitars dominate the proceedings from start to finish.

Acoustic guitars and melodic undistorted guitars are contrasted with distorted and often heavy riffs, where each track has sequences of both the gentler and the more brutal aspects of this instrument; and careful dissonances are added in the multiple layered guitar themes to add some subtle textures and details to the explorations. Usually there will be either one soloing pattern over a more laid-back melodic theme or a riff pattern; but also melodic embellishments over a thematic foundation are utilized from time to time.

Short tunes means that these efforts don't get too repetitive, and there are enough good ideas on this album to make it enjoyable too - at least of you're fond of instrumental albums verging back and forth between rock and metal in style. Good debut by a talented act.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
