Bottom line, for a debut, this CD, in fact the entire package, just drips with musical professionalism. From the slick art layout (with full lyrics), to the crisp Production and energetic musicianship, this release seems to surpass many releases on major labels. The CD artwork was done by Mattias Noren, the same gent who has done covers for bands like Evergrey, Fate, Mind’s Eye, and Derek Sherinian, to name only a few. To tip the odds even more in their favor, the CD was also engineered by Drew Mazurek (Byzantine, Linkin Park, H.I.M., Nothing Face, etc.). The band appears to be of a relatively young age, so a long career is hopefully inevitable. … perhaps one of most impressive independent releases of the year in the Modern Metal category! The monster has been created. FEATURING FORMER MEMBERS OF MYSTIC FORCE this new band now joined by a formidable new voice forge forward into a more modern progressive metal direction, blending the progressive sounds of MYSTIC FORCE with the more in your face production of DISTURBED. Combining the bands Progressive Metal roots and their up to date sound with vocalist Jeff Caudle approach that has similar inflections in tone to that of DISTURBED vocalist DAVID DRAIMAN, help to make this bands debut album an assault on the ears that is hard to find these days, and yet is current and relevent to what the fresh young metal heads are looking for. Speedy, technical guitar heavy passages, ripping vocals, and incredibly tight production make this one a fantastic new album, that few know about as of yet, but many will enjoy.
