Progressive Metal

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Less progressive than their later efforts, it is a good record nevertheless for an open metal fan.

There are diverse influence manifested in the music such as classical music (without any orchestra so inferior to Therion), gothic/doom slight spirit and some progressive moments. Vocals are excellent, be it the bellsounding female vocal or mighty growling that adds more edge. Of notice are advanced female harmonies that give a lot of warmth through the metal tunnel. Instrumentation is competent even if not very ambitious but not flat or shallow on the other side. I can recommend this album due to good melodies and execution but for less open proggers, start with their 2004 album or later.
