The debut album from this US/Norwegian band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, synths and vocals.
This is a bit of a super-group with members of Borknagar, Death and Cynic.
The music is not death or black metal, though.
We are talking power or progressive metal here. I guess progressive metal is the right label. It is softer music than the usual music from these five gentlemen.
The music is big and bold progressive metal. The music is a bit harder than most progressive metal albums. Hence me also using power metal on this music.
The vocals are good although a bit tiring. The musicians is top notch and cannot be faulted.
And the album is one hour long too. Good value for money.
I am by no means a fan of this genre. But progressive metal fans should check out this album.
For me, half of this album is good and the rest is decent enough.
Check out this album.
