Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Promising and intriguing effort by this Venezuelan debutant.

In the 70+ minutes of music served on this venture, it's pretty obvious that the band isn't trying to explore any small niche in terms of stylistic expressions. Almost ambient, industrial influenced soundscapes are scattered throughout the disc, while the compositions contain segments similar to early 80's King Crimson as well as Tool, with eastern tinged atmospheres, jazzy explorations and world music inspired percussions as additional stylistic expressions. More often than not combined in a single tracks.

There's also room for a few more mainstream oriented efforts here, in between the often quirky and complex excursions.

A key feature in all of this is the strong, distinct vocals of composer, multi-instrumentalist and band leader Karen Gonzales; contrasting the often dark and brooding atmospheres provided by the instruments.

Those looking for experimental progressive rock with a multitude of influences and stylistic expressions should take note of this creation.
