5 stars "Woah that song is forty minutes long!" the album.

That was what I always thought about this album until I listened it. Edge Of Sanity is a pretty obscure band, and I wouldn't really say that their discography is as strong as the one from other Tech Metal acts like Opeth or Death, but this album is a true marvel for its genre.

The song alternates between heavy and crushing riffs to mellow acoustic passages, much like Opeth (no wonder why the mastermind behind Opeth, Mikael, was brought as a featured artist). A perfect balance between these contrasting properties is present and it's undeniable that it adds great dynamic to this masterwork.

Obviously, if you start to listen to this album, you must finish it. It flows amazingly (mostly due to the fact that it's a single song) and isn't a boring listen in any way. I think my five star rating shouldn't be too controversial. Most metalheads will agree this is a masterpiece.
