4 stars Excellent debut by US power trio. Even if formally this band is placed under "progressive metal" tag, their music is heavy fusion. Mixing many influences, they sound very fresh ,energetic and groovy.

Music is fully instrumental, and main components are jazz rock fusion, funk, Latin rock ( in some places guitar sounds very Santana-like), blues rock and heavy metal. Musicianship level is virtuosic, so in combination with very funky groove they music easy catches every listener.

Heavy metal elements mostly appear in some guitar shredding and generally in guitar technique/sound, but happily doesn't destroy this tasty music too much. Guest sax player adds even more excellent jazz fusion elements in their music.

In later works band will move more towards funky heavy fusion, which will make their music even more interesting. But as debut, this album is very promising. I can recommend it as one of greatest heavy (funky) fusion works coming from late 90-s.
