5 stars So apparently Facebook's "targeted ad" campaign actually works.. This band was brought to me by advertising. And I am thanking them as we speak (via one-way text). This band is exactly what my taste dictates. It's instrumental, progressive, heavy at times, and just oozes atmosphere. Some of the keyboard tones remind me of Dream Theater. The guitar and atmosphere reminds me of bands like Jolly. These guys have struck a good balance between heaviness and keyboards. The drum beats are so sick that I think they gave me AIDS. The overarching keyboard tones together with the guitar and bass riffs create a medley of melodic sound that drills its way through your eardrums in 7/8, 5/8, and 4/4 (although not often.). The song jumps always catch me off guard, which is exactly what any good prog band will do until you memorize when it happens. Altogether I am very impressed with this album.

Obscenities: None (instrumental)

Indecencies: None (instrumental)

Recommended: 5, 3, 4
