I get chills listening to this album. The shimmering cleans, heavy and thick riffs, and gorgeous melodies are perfectly executed. Dynamic, mournful guitar leads that are technical without being effusive showcase some serious talent.
This album is full of thick, dark, and profound sounds. The ambience and heaviness are expertly woven with memorable melodies to create an awesome listening experience. I got this on vinyl and it gets a lot of spin time!
This album has everything anyone could ask for in instrumental prog metal. Happy synth and guitar leads morph into heavy grinding and shredding. Melodies are memorable and riffs are worthy of head banging. There's so much detail--you'll notice new layers with each listen.
