5 stars Modern prog fusion supergroup, founded by great Cynic bassist Sean Malone. On this debut album participated Warr guitar genius Trey Gunn (ex-King Crimson), drummer Sean Reinert (Cynic), John Myung (Dream Theater, Chapman Stick-as guest) and two morw Warr/stick guitarists!

So, can you imagine instrumental neo-fusion prog ,played by 3 Warr/stick guitars,bass and drums? No keybords!

Yes, the music is exactly what you imagine: strongly influented by King Crimson complex mix of heavy progressive, some psychedelic moments, few metal sounds, cold and nervous atmosphere of modern world. Songs structure is half fusion,half improvistaion, with some guitar soloing.

Absolutely great debut! Should be interesting for modern KC lovers, must have for Trey Gunn or Sean Malone fans. Very recommended for everyone searching for fresh and modern prog, running out from neo-prog cliches!
