This review was originally posted here. I don't usually reprint the reviews I contributed to Full Metal Attorney, but I felt this was worthy of a rare exception.
Nephelium has the same quality.
I have listened to this album over and over again and the same thing jumps out at me every time. I love this album. The riffing is top-notch and the band really never gets bogged down with just one idea. There is a lot of variety in the music with tempo changes and some technical riffwork. The tracks are a little on the long side, none of the songs are less than five minutes and there are a nine minute song and a ten minute song, but that does not matter when the music is as good as this is.
I don't think I can pass up an opportunity to mention that this band is originally from Dubai, although they have since relocated to Canada. It is an interesting little nugget of information. I have not previously heard a metal band from the United Arab Emirates, so this is a first for me.
I am extremely impressed with this album. The intensity is infectious and this band has a very bright future.
