3 stars During last decade Poland became a home for the best world-class heavy rock bands, as Riverside or Indukti. So, I am just trying to check all possible new heavy/prog metal releases from this country, happily I need just one and half hour for gettin' there by car.

It is my first Division By Zero album, so I can't compare it with their other works. After very first album's song I was seriously worried - competent heavy metal, with some progressivity elements, great vocals ( a little bit a-la Bruce Dickinson), growling, but nothing original at all. One more quality clone?

Then things gone better. Less boring-to-death trashing, much more melodies, dark ,even atmospheric sound. Great drumming, competent guitars. Really better than average vocals.

For sure, they are not on the league of Riverside, but borrowed very melodic sound from former. Not too many elements of progressivity, but very competent sound for classic prog metal fans.

After few decades of my active interest to heavy metal/heavy prog music I became a bad critic of this genre - myriads of clones can kill everyone's interest to that music. So - I really like this music if there is something new in every new album and the music is played by excellent musicians. Unhappily such situation is extremely rare nowadays.

Division By Zero's new album is no exception. Some power metal influences and gothic-bombastic sound really didn't make their music better. So, a bit better than average prog metal album for me. But metalheadz could easily add one more star to evaluation.
