Review by Salvo "Lovedeath77" Russo________________
OHHH! I didn't expect an album so wounderful! A cd composed from four big monsters of prog music: it will let you mesmerized ...i'm sure! There are lots of atmospheres and i think that also prog-metal is taking inspiration from modern music! Nu-metal influences involve this album but not only....There are songs that reminds me of Goblin (italian horror music band) and the vocal parts are entrusted to Kevin Moore that shows his ability as singer!!!There are no usual songs!! It's no possible to compare this work to other bands and it's difficult to describe what these 4 men have created!!!! This is a super album that may be understood from all those that appreciate different kinds of music. "Dirt froma holy place" reminds me of Goblin....a nu-metal riff involves "Horseshoes And B-52's" an introspective song in which i notice a very fantastic atmosphere!!!! The cleverness of the musicians is supported by perfect arrangements as well as the care in the production!IThis is a masterpiece...a brilliant album which shows the evolution of metal in all meanings!!!The atmosphere rules the songs....and it's evident how this work is far from Dream Theater, Fates Warning ecc...Here i notice a very good search for a particular sound done by synth, i notice darkness.......and modern guitar riffs.
An experimental work ..that i think will change many things in the next years!!This is the prog in 2003!!!!!!
Go and buy this cd... play it in your hi-fy and you'll enter in the fantastic OSI's world !
