3 stars Not metal not neo-prog but somewhere in between.

There's some horrific german accent in the vocals, but what can you expect from a german band. Excellent soloing by both the keyboardist and the guitarist. The drummer is metal-oriented wich gives the whole a sharp and heavy approach.

Musically it meanders between Saga and Marillion. The lyrics are about lost love, drugabuse and egyptian mythology. Maybe the last three songs can be considered silly, they are in the vein of Iron Maiden, wich is of course not all that intelligent. But the first part of the cd is sublime enough to keep serious listeneres satisfied.

Too bad, the band didn't continue, I think they could have been up there with some of the top neoprog bands.

Highlights are the intricate First Contact and the wonderfully crafted Snowflakes.
