The question I need to answer first is, what is it that this band has to offer that is so great? Well, the guitar and keyboard duels are outstanding, the drums are well executed and the vocals are very unique. If you have listened to Power metal such as Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica and similar bands, this band is along the same lines, but with more of a progressive twist. There is also a heavy use of keyboards present (when compared to more popular bands of this genre.) which might confuse people as to whether this is rock or metal. Let me say, this is the most metal you will get from Artension.

This is my favourite album by this band. The Neoclassical influences are AMAZING! It's generally their heaviest album too, compared to the others which use mostly keyboard. This album is definately a grower, but when it does you realise how good these songs actually are

The instrumental track (Red's Recovery) is absolutely mindblowing.... it has some of the fastest keyboard / guitar playing i've ever heard in my life. Other highlights are 'Lost Memory', 'World Of Illusion', 'Song Of The Desert' and 'Let It Ride'.

Artension are very underrated... do not judge a band by it's album cover. The music makes up for it!
