3 stars This Germany duo have produced this big progressive metal album of 80 minutes with 3 songs of 12 minutes and a epic of 26 minutes. The music balance many orchestral arrangements with the progressive metal arpeggios of a band like Ayeron. The tempo of the songs evolved slowly with burst of heavier guitars that alternate with lighter piano and acoustic guitars passages that gives to the music a atmospheric feel. The musicians are not showing their craft to some excess with the exception of some Ayeron's guitar parts that i didn't enjoy as much as the classical and quieter passages of the album. But the final epic song "The Gift of Awarness" was a different story for me. The band managed to make some more unique guitars, keyboards melodies and some challenging rhythm changes that could evoke the originality of a band like Haken, for example the nice piano break. This final song show that the band has some potential for the future. I will check them closely. 3.5 stars
