4 stars Brilliant prog metal band from Germany with three albums in their pocket since now. This is their second effort named Balance from 2004 released at Progman records. They needed 6 years to come with this release, but the result is excellent. Catchy arrangements, melodic meets more heavier elements always with good attitude and positive vibration. Great voice this Russel Gray, he knows how to handle his voice and deliver some smooth and jaw dropping moments, and he fits like a glove in this kind of music. The musicianship is fabulous on some pieces like on instrumental Storms, realy great track, and on last track , the longest from here End of a Rainbow , 12 min of sheer briliancy , prog metal of the highest calibre. Even the pieces are kind shorter, minus the lat track, they have enough prog metal elements to capture my attention and every one's intrested in prog metal. Quite unnoticed band for large rpublic, and for sure needs more respect and more reviews because they kick ass with this album. 4 stars easy, prog metal as must sound this style, complex, quirly in places, tight arrangements and above all an excellent voice. Recommended
