3 stars Third album of this intristing band from Czech Republic, named New religion from 2008. Now this time they change direction, ok in a good way of course, they know bussines, but this time this album is a bit less intristing then Unicorn. Even in places is more towards metal, the Dream Theater influences are more obvious here, but aswell they keep the older formula on every track. Nice flute elements, a little less used like on Unicorn, but good for sure, the keyboards have now a more important role, some fantastic interplays between keyboards and guitar made from this album worth investigated. Very good is the openig track, New religion with grandious chorus and very good vocal arrangements, who by the way , were fantastic on Unicorn, I forgot to say it. Very good the voice of Petr Kutheil, from mellow to a more rough passages, he really did a great work. Another good album by this Votchi, they need more attention because they worth it, but this time only a 3 more like 3.5 star, still good but less strong then Unicorn, their best so far. A band to watch in the future because they know bussines in heavy prog zone. Both albums available at cdbaby so don't hesitate to have it because they worth.
