3 stars Debut album of heavy fusion Hungarian band. Technically very good music, some heavy prog, metal and jazz fusion combination with characteristic Chapman stick bass sound. The result is good and bad at the same time.

Music is very similar to Sean Malone, Gordian Knot or LTE sound, but more rounded, softer, more melodic. The problem is guys really know how to play, but the material is too secondary (or too faceless). So, even if you will like HOW they play, you will hardly remember (or like) WHAT they play. For sure, Chapman stick has its characteristic sound, so it is not easy to find own way using it. But using very similar technique to well-known stick players doesn't help for sure.

Happily, there are some more attractive moments in this music, as quite intelligent electric guitar sound or even violin. But musical material is not strong enough to support band's debut for success. All in all the album sounds as very talented imitators work.
