5 stars This album had me entranced from the very first listen. The music is dark, frightening, foreboding, and builds itself in waves, rising and falling repeatedly throughout each song. The style changes drastically throughout the album, meant to create an unsettled, changing landscape of sound. The vocals switch from low, soothing, beautifully sung lyrics to screaming that is nearly incomprehensible (both audibly and cryptically). The guitar work varies similarly, from being slow, and in the classical style, to pulsating metal riffs that drive the rest of the song forward. At times thrash metal, at times quite Crimson-esque, and at times indescribable, this album will hold my attention for some time. Recommended for fans of the avant-garde side of modern prog, or fans of all sorts of metal, fans of anything interesting, unusual, and indescribable. This album is a trip in its own right.
