4 stars OK perhaps the righter score is 4 stars or also a bit inferior (3 stars and an half) cause of the lack of originality, being too much harsh as well, in some circumstances... nevertheless this album is strong and for sure it's their best effort, even though - apart from their excellent skill - this band produced by Raul Caprio (Kaliphonia Records) and some years later by Cuneiform Records, from the point of view of the harmonic solutions and the composition too, made a strong hidden emulation of some 70's Prog-bands. For example you find references to "AREA", "MAGMA" and also some of the Italian bands within the Heavy-Progressive tradition, like "CAMPO DI MARTE", "BIGLIETTO PER L'INFERNO" & "IL ROVESCIO DELLA MEDAGLIA". The vocalist Alberto Piras has got a good range during his vocal excursions, trying to emulate Demetrio Stratos, but he sings in Latin, and this can be a problem at last!! The output is very much interesting anyway, despite of being very "cold" and close to their formal perfection, sometimes without emotion or pathos...it never minds, this is their most jazzy and experimental progressive album, the best one for whom is already into their most complex stuff!

Recommended!!
