    Not a single filler track. Every song a gem worthy of awards. This has become my favorite album even above many of my long time favorites. Heavy, grooving, well written to the point that every song is a journey as you don't expect. Just brilliant. I can't wait to hear more from Vola in the future.

    Unfed Pendulum Unfed Pendulum
    A truly odd trek through a wide range of emotions and musical ideas, but at the same time exquisitely constructed in its oddness. Amongst its weaponry are such elements as fear, surprise, a ruthless efficiency...(jk). Seriously though, a brilliant and crazy work that makes me incredibly sad that I discovered it after the band has already separated. This feels like a band that has just honed in on its artistry and then (poof) they're gone....

    Part IV - Bastion Part IV - Bastion
    A masterful progressive concept work that I can only wish was much much longer. No other complaints, only a plethora of compliments: great instrumentation, superb compositional arch, fantastic playing, amazing melodies and grooves. One of my favorite albums. I want more!

    Vanishing Rites (Tread Softly Little One) [Bonus Track] Vanishing Rites (Tread Softly Little One) [Bonus Track]
    One of the best progressive bands to come out in a long time. One of the best and most original voices out there, meaning both compositionally and actual vocals.

    I Am Not Here I Am Not Here
    An amazing band that has a little of everything: Great grooves, great riffs (guitar and bass), and great melodies. It's easy to see them going very far in this genre. Easily my favorite band right now.
  7. Dodecaedro

    Babel Babel
    Fantastic and well written instrumental metal. I always say that if you are an instrumental band the music has to be particularly interesting because a vocalist isn't propping up the whole enterprise. Let's face it humans are drawn toward the human voice. This band is fantastic.
  8. Fortnight To Fall
    by Olli Heino

    Fortnight To Fall Fortnight To Fall
    A beautifully constructed masterpiece. Most instrumental progressive metal comes across as competent but this is truly artful. It's heavy when appropriate, builds skillfully to climactic peaks, and allows you to settle in to enjoy some relaxing moments here and there. Simply genius.

    Axis Axis
    Recommendation to video game companies: Call up Danimal Cannon and hire him to score your game. It will sell better than with a terribly written orchestral score by some schmuck with limited compositional talent.

    Crazy heavy, fantastic grooves, beautiful melodies, and just an all around fantastic band. I can't wait to hear more!
