5 stars This album is the strongest debut album I have heard from a Prog Metal band. To release a concept album as a debut is quite rare nowadays, let alone releasing one of this quality! Whatīs great about this album is that you can hear the bass clearly. (A lot of Prog Metal bands have the bass mixed far too low or it is drowned out by the heavy guitars) Ricardo Winandy delivers some really complex bass playing on this album, making it a pleasure to listen to on headphones.

The vocalist, Danilo Herbert has a fantastic range and has to be the best vocalist to have come out of South America.

The guitarist displays a strong sense of melody and knows when to hold back or let rip. Toward the end of the album he lets go with some dazzling lead guitar work. Throughout the album he changes from electric to incredible acoustic playing. Miguel Spada also switches from keyboard to piano and although the band cites Dream Theater as a big influence, the keyboard playing is unique and canīt really be compared to anyone else. Somehow, the keyboardist seems to stitch the music together and make the music flow, adding that special "unique" element to their sound that only he knows how.

Rafael Pensando does a lot of complex drumming throughout this album, reminding me a lot of Mike Portnoy. The great thing about this band is that there are no weak links, the musicianship is top notch, the bass isnīt low in the mix, and the music chops and changes without warning.

This is real PROGRESSIVE metal!!
