2 stars Deliverance, a pretty heavy album from one of progs heaviest bands. It honestly is barely progressive. Barely.

Wreath, from a Death Metal point of view, it's a heavy death metal sludge fest. Progressive wise, there's nothing there. No prog. Long tracks don't make prog rock. (5/10)

Deliverance starts out heavy and pretty kickass. It doesn't let up. It's a great track, some prog parts. For example, the clean vocals a snare fills near the end. And the end. Nice track. (8/10)

A Fair Judgement, is pretty repetitive, but the parts that are repeated are pure genius. Great track, nice mix of light and heavy. (9/10)

For Absent Friends, just like the Genesis song. Random and not very interesting. (0/10)

Masters Apprentices, this song starts out pure death metal, flattens the listener. This goes on for about 5 minutes, when you expect it not to stop. It actually becomes this beautiful, progressive song, that reminds a little of Harvest towards the break in the middle. Once it does get back into the heavy, it goes much better with this intense guitar line. This is nothing short of great. Best track on the album. (10/10)

By The Pain I See In Others starts off very progressive. The slow fading and very interesting song structuring. But after about 1:30, it morphs into this repetitive piece of metal that isn't very interesting. I can see why it's Mikael Akerfeldt's least favorite Opeth song. I just don't get why he wrote it. (5/10)

This is not much effort to be progressive from the guys here. It really doesn't stand out from death metal and I wouldn't call it prog. It's just death metal.

Treasure | 2/5 |
