4 stars Snowtorch comes to solidify career Phideaux Xavier and confirm him as one of the leading artists of the new generation of progressive rock. This album confirms that seems inexhaustible creativity, with a distinctive style but without becoming boring or repetitive. As Anglagard, he explores all the possibilities of instruments at its back, with two great epics, it is challenging to keep the breath of music, a task which he does splendidly. The breaks of the songs always print a great melody coming back for more reflective side than technical and always rhythmic. Does not lack technique, but this is seen in the subtle details and not a meaningless jumble of notes. Powerful pianos, effects and mellotrons. I confess to being somewhat nostalgic, what makes me like it less each release of the artists, but in case Phideaux is the opposite ... I love him more with each release.
